Lucent seals deal to provide transport network for KDDI

17 Nov 2006

Lucent Technologies announced that Japan 's KDDI Corp. has selected Lucent to supply optical cross connect systems to support its international transport network.

Under the agreement KDDI will deploy Lucent's LambdaUnite MultiService Switch (MSS) and Navis Optical Management System (OMS) to create an integrated, multi-service transport network to support a range of traditional voice services and new and emerging data services.

Lucent's LambdaUnite MSS is an optical transport and cross-connect system that is capable of bridging traffic between data-intensive metro networks and high-speed optical core networks, connecting cities, campuses and corporate networks to larger, long-haul public networks.

The platform was developed using a non-blocking, duplicated switch matrix architecture that greatly reduces the need for additional cross-connects and multiplexing systems, enabling KDDI to dramatically reduce its ongoing maintenance and operating costs.

'By introducing Lucent Technologies' LambdaUnite MSS, KDDI will be able to move forward with its migration to the latest generation cross-connect, while supporting the integration of its international platforms into a single unified network,' said Toshihiko Yumoto, executive director & general manager, Network Engineering Division, Corporate Technology Sector, KDDI. 'In addition, we believe that the centralized alarm monitoring and disaster recovery features (such as NMS server redundancy) will greatly increase the trust that end-users have in our systems.'
Navis OMS -- which KDDI selected to provide management capabilities for the LambdaUnite MSS-based network -- allows the monitoring and control of optical transport networks, including those based on both SONET and SDH standards.

'The adoption of the LambdaUnite MSS by KDDI reaffirms Lucent's leading position in the optical transport and cross connect markets, both within Japan and internationally,' said Satoshi Fujita, the President of Lucent Technologies Japan. 'Lucent is dedicated to supporting KDDI in its effort to provide the most advanced and cost-effective network.' -- Wireless News
