Alcatel-Lucent has announced two new projects being carried out with service providers in Thailand.

Interlink Telecom and Symphony Communications will both use Alcatel-Lucent's 100G Optical transport solution to support various broadband initiatives throughout Thailand. These deployments also support the Thai government's national broadband network initiative.

Alcatel-Lucent is also providing its wavelength tracker technology to give Interlink Telecom an integrated view across its network, making it easier to monitor performance and identify problem areas in order to maintain its reputation for high reliability as it increases network speeds and capacity.

In the first initiative, Alcatel-Lucent is applying its portfolio of Agile Optical Networking solutions to transform the network of Thailand's Interlink Telecom. Interlink has installed its network along railways and major road routes across the country, connecting to neighboring Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and Malaysia.

Alcatel-Lucent is deploying its industry-leading DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexing) solution with the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform integrated with Wavelength Tracker technology. This will give Interlink Telecom an integrated view across its network, making it easier to monitor performance and identify problem areas in order to maintain its reputation for high reliability as it increases network speeds and capacity.

The second initiative will see Thailand's Symphony Communication using Alcatel-Lucent's Agile Optical Networking portfolio to increase network speed and capacity and support its launch of ultra-broadband services.

Alcatel-Lucent is working with Teo Hong Silom to supply its industry-leading WDM (wavelength division multiplexing) solution, comprising the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform and the 1350 Optical Management System. This will transform Symphony Communication's core network to have capacity of up to 100 gigabits per second and an optimised network performance.
