SK Broadband Selects Alcatel-Lucent To Build South Korea's First Packet Transport Network To Support Ethernet Service For Business Customers

SEOUL, South Korea and PARIS, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) and SK Broadband – a subsidiary of SK Telecom, one of South Korea's largest broadband service providers – announced the selection of Alcatel-Lucent to build South Korea's first packet transport network dedicated to meeting the high-bandwidth data needs of enterprises throughout the country. 

SK Broadband's existing transport network based on the MSPP (Multi Service Provisioning Platform) technology was designed primarily to transmit legacy TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) traffic. Using Alcatel-Lucent's Packet Transport Network (PTN) solution, SK Broadband will be creating a new network to transport increasing data traffic.

Key Facts:
  • SK Broadband will deploy Alcatel-Lucent's 1850 Transport Service Switch managed by its 1350 Optical Management Suite (OMS).
  • Packet Transport Network solution enables SK Broadband to smoothly migrate the existing circuit switched network.
  • Enterprises will benefit from dedicated Carrier Ethernet network designed specifically to meet the high-bandwidth needs of current and future business applications.
  • PTN network will help SK Broadband create a variety of new business services/applications for business customers.  
  • Korea, already one of the most connected societies in the world, will enjoy even more advanced business services with superfast data transport network.
  • SK Telecom deployed Alcatel-Lucent's PTN solution, which now serves as heart of its LTE network.


DongBum Shin, Head of Network Planning Headquarter of SK Broadband, said: "As traffic from enterprise customers is changing rapidly to data, we need to have network ready and optimized to accommodate those business Ethernet services. We expect that Alcatel-Lucent's Packet Transport Network solution enables us to accelerate our business-to-business growth and prepare for mid-long term network migration to all-IP."

Rajeev Singh-Molares, President of Alcatel-Lucent Asia Pacific region, said: "Enterprise Networking requirements in Korea are growing in complexity and bandwidth levels, and the underlying applications having increasingly stringent performance needs.  Our new packet transport network serves as a key showcase demonstrating our commitment to SK Broadband's efforts to support the growing business-to-business data needs through a proven optic solution."
