US-based UTStarcom Inc has won a contract to deploy a next generation network (NGN) for Filipino incumbent Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT). UTStarcom, a leading provider of IP-based end-to-end networking solutions and services, has already rolled out 150,000 lines of its mSwitch IP-based softswitch platform and iAN-8000 Multiservice Access Node (MSAN) as the foundation for the NGN. The first phase of PLDT’s deployment is targeting unserved and underserved areas, key business locations and areas that need a capacity upgrade in Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Bulacan and metro Manila.
