PARIS, Sept. 25 -- Alcatel announced it has been awarded a multimillion dollar contract by Asia Multimedia, a subsidiary of Thailand's leading telecom operator, TelecomAsia, to build the operator's metropolitan transmission network in Bangkok. The project, based on Alcatel's dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) and synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) technologies, will provide Asia Multimedia with a new transport network capacity to meet the demand for leased line service.
Alcatel will implement its carrier-class 1696 Metro Span, a DWDM system designed for metropolitan and enterprise applications. The infrastructure will also use Alcatel's next-generation SDH optical multiservice node systems, which deliver data-aware functionality.
