Lucent to install DWDM system for Dacom in Korea

Jan. 1, 1998
Lucent Technologies (Murray Hill, NJ) has won a contract to supply and install a high-speed, high-capacity optical line system (OLS) based on dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) in the Dacom (Seoul, South Korea) fiberoptic-backbone telecommunications network in South Korea. Under the contract, Lucent will install the system between Daejeon and Jeonjoo (97 km) and between Jeonjoo and Gongjoo (114 km). The Dacom network capacity is currently 2.5 Gbit/s and will increase to 10 Gbit/s when

Lucent to install DWDM system for Dacom in Korea

Lucent Technologies (Murray Hill, NJ) has won a contract to supply and install a high-speed, high-capacity optical line system (OLS) based on dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) in the Dacom (Seoul, South Korea) fiberoptic-backbone telecommunications network in South Korea. Under the contract, Lucent will install the system between Daejeon and Jeonjoo (97 km) and between Jeonjoo and Gongjoo (114 km). The Dacom network capacity is currently 2.5 Gbit/s and will increase to 10 Gbit/s when service begins in the first quarter of 1998. The new OLS will have a total capacity of 40 Gbit/s. Dacom is the second carrier for international and long-distance services in South Korea, after Korea Telecom. The installation will be the first use of DWDM in Korea.

In other company news, the Lucent Technologies Microelectronics Grou¥(Berkeley Heights, NJ) announced development of a new grou¥of laser modules, photodetectors, and receivers that will quadruple capacity of fiberoptic networks from 2.5 to 10 Gbit/s.
