Turk Telekom taps Alca-Lu to overhaul core IP network

24 Jul 2014

Turk Telekom has deployed Alcatel-Lucent’s 7950 Extensible Routing Platform (XRS) in its core IP network, the French-US vendor has announced. The new routers, deployed in three major locations in Istanbul and also in Ankara, are expected to help Turk Telekom keep pace with the growing bandwidth demands of its residential and business customers, and offer the telco the ability to support more than a hundred Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on its backbone. The deployment also saw a ‘consolidation of existing core routers’, Alca-Lu noted.
