Chuan Wei to build Cambodia's first 100G fiber-optic network

Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) says it will supply the equipment necessary for Chuan Wei to deploy the first 100-Gbps fiber-optic network in Cambodia.

Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) says it will supply the equipment necessary for Chuan Wei to deploy the first 100-Gbps fiber-optic network in Cambodia.

The systems house says that business growth and strong trading agreements with Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, along with a growing number of tourists, is creating significant need for increased network capacity, which Chuan Wei will meet with the 100G optical transport deployment.

"We recognized the need to upgrade our network to meet customer expectations for ultra-broadband connectivity and high reliability, especially as it pertains to international reach through Chuan Wei's submarine cables," explains Eric Lee, executive director of Chuan Wei. "We were looking for a network with significant increase in capacity, even more reliability, and a high degree of scalability to prepare our network for 400G and beyond."

Alcatel-Lucent will supply its 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) to enable the 100G DWDM network, which will leverage Optical Transport Network (OTN) principles.
