BEIJING, July 31 -- Lucent Technologies announced it has won two contracts from Guangdong Eastern Fibernet Co. (GEFC) for the expansion of its synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) and dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) networks in Guangdong Province. Shanghai Tiantong Telecommunications Equipment Co. Ltd., a Lucent business partner, has provided pre-sales support on both projects and will deliver the equipment to GEFC.
Lucent's optical networking systems will enable GEFC to construct a high-speed network and offer its customers new services over the broadband network. Its LambdaUnite MSSs will form the core ring of the SDH network in the cities of Guangzhou, JiangMen and Shenzhen. This will connect the metro rings formed by its Metropolis ADM in Zhaoqing, Zhanjiang, Jieyang, Shantou and Huizhou. Lucent will also deploy its WaveStar ITM-SC network management system to help GEFC integrate Lucent's hardware into its existing SDH network. Lucent's WaveStar OLS 1.6T and Metropolis EON will be deployed in the major cities of Guangdong province to manage broadband traffic growth and provide data services to GEFC's customers.
