True conducts 100Gbps Ethernet trial

14 Dec 2010

Alcatel-Lucent has announced that Thai full-service telco True Corp has successfully conducted a field trial carrying 100Gbps Ethernet (100GE) traffic over its existing IP/MPLS network, which is based on Alcatel-Lucent service routing technology. The trial successfully demonstrated that Alcatel-Lucent’s 100GE interfaces support and sustain 100Gbps, while delivering wireless services, as well as residential broadband, subscriber management, business Ethernet and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). The trial leveraged Alcatel-Lucent’s existing 7750 Service Routers, 7450 Ethernet Service Switches, and the 5620 Service Aware Manager, which together form the base of True’s converged IP/MPLS network.

In February this year, True selected Alcatel-Lucent’s IP/MPLS solution to support a converged network transformation, covering Bangkok’s metropolitan area, supporting both 3G IP mobile services provided by cellular arm True Move as well as fixed broadband services from True Online.
