Sep 2001
MURRAY HILL, NJ, Sept 18 -- Lucent Technologies Inc. said that it has signed two European contracts. The company said that it signed a multiyear contract for an unspecified amount of money to supply optical networking gear to France Telecom. In a separate project, France Telecom has begun testing the Lucent WaveStar LambdaRouter, a high-capacity, all-optical switch.

Lucent also said it signed a contract for an unspecified amount to expand the capacity of the European optical network of Paris-based NETs, a member of Italy's Tiscali. NETs is a telecom and infrastructure operator specializing in high-speed transmission for carriers, Internet service providers and large businesses.

Lucent said it will upgrade NETs' current 400 gbs, dense wavelength division multiplexing system, to a system that can transmit at 800 gbs.
