Alcatel-Lucent Lands Deal for Fiber Broadband with SK Telecom

Alcatel-Lucent has landed a deal to provide SK (South Korea)
Broadband with a 100 Gigabit fiber optic network to meet SK’s
consumer and business subscribers’ booming demand for
broadband. SK uses the fiber network to deliver IPTV, HD
video, broadband VoIP and business services in Seoul and the
neighboring GyungGi province. AlcaLu said the enhanced network
“will give SK Broadband the ability to adapt the network
quickly to meet rapidly changing patterns in data traffic and
customer demand, and offers the capability to support very
high-capacity data transmission capacity up to 8.8 terabits in
the future.”

Rajeev Singh-Molares, president of Asia Pacific for Alcatel-
Lucent, said SK Broadband operates in one of “the world’s most
competitive markets for communications services” and consumers
there have very high expectations in terms of service quality.
