China Telecom Selects Alcatel For IP/MPLS Network

MANHASSET, N.Y. — Alcatel announced Thursday (Dec. 9) that China Telecom has chosen the Alcatel carrier-class IP service routing and management solution to deliver high value data services over its nation-wide IP/MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) network, ChinaNet2.

The contract was won through Alcatel Shanghai Bell, Alcatel's flagship Chinese company.
Alcatel will provide China Telecom with the Alcatel 7750 Service Router and 5620 Service Aware Manager to support the operator in delivering a wider range of advanced, differentiated IP and Ethernet services that will generate new revenue streams. The 7750 SR will also enable the operator to integrate its voice and service level agreement (SLA)-based data services into a unified IP/MPLS platform.
ChinaNet2 is designed to cope with the imminent network requirements for large-scale deployment of new data services such as Ethernet virtual private network (VPN) services, on top of the existing high-speed Internet access services. Equipped with the Alcatel IP service routing solution, ChinaNet2 is expected to be able to handle the anticipated deployment of next-generation network and 3G services.
