Alca-Lu deploys IP/MPLS technology for LG Uplus

21 Nov 2012

French-US vendor Alcatel-Lucent has claimed to have ‘transformed’ South Korean operator LG Uplus’s network, having deployed its Internet Protocol/Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) technology in some of the country’s major cities. The new equipment will boost both broadband speeds and capacity in the wake of surging data demand as customers look to take-up high speed internet accesses, alongside IPTV, VoIP and other high-bandwidth services. The development represents the first deployment in South Korea of service routers (SRs) using Alca-Lu’s FP3 processor, which it says is the industry’s first 400G processor and provides the foundation for future speeds of up to 400Gbps.
