Chorus, New Zealand’s largest telecommunications infrastructure company, has selected IP routing technology from Alcatel-Lucent to build the core network that will power its ‘Chorus Accelerate’ program, which will offer customers broadband services over both copper and fiber networks.

Chorus will deploy the Alcatel-Lucent 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) to support a multi-million dollar investment in its core infrastructure to handle the increased bandwidth demand created by the program. With its ability to handle up to 16 terabits of data per second, the 7950 XRS has the capacity necessary to support high0-bandwidth broadband services like high-definition video and cloud applications.

Chorus is the first Asia-Pacific telecommunications provider to deploy Alcatel-Lucent’s 7950 XRS, which will pave the way for a new portfolio of ‘Chorus Accelerate’ broadband products for existing customers, new customers, high-bandwidth users and business with committed bandwidth rates of 100Mbps.
