China Netcom Selects Nortel to Build 3G Optical Backbones

China Netcom, one of China’s major telecommunication operators, has awarded Nortel Networks a contract to deploy its national optical transmission backbone, further strengthening Nortel Networks leadership position in delivering next generation optical networks to China.

The contract includes delivery and installation of two new long haul networks. Under the contract, China Netcom will be the first customer to deploy Nortel Networks OPTera Connect HDX Optical Switch in China.

These two optical networks will span the most prosperous cities in East China, positioning China Netcom to offer new optical broadband services while dramatically lowering its cost of network ownership. – (World IT Report.com)
