Asia Netcom, the wholly owned subsidiary of China Netcom, has selected Lucent Technologies to supply a next generation optical communications platform to upgrade its pan-Asian submarine network, known as EAC. The new platform will dramatically enhance Asia Netcom’s ability to deliver next-generation bandwidth services with a variety of advanced transport and connectivity services in the Asia Pacific region. EAC stretches 19,500km and connects Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines and Singapore. It will soon extend into China through a new cable extension to the northern Chinese city of Qingdao.
