Lucent Technologies today announced a deal with SaskTel, a leading Canadian service provider, to provide optical networking equipment that will allow SaskTel to increase network
capacity and offer faster, more sophisticated services.
The agreement supports SaskTel’s ongoing deployment of its high-speed network that offers advanced services, such as MAX Interactive Services — Internet Protocol (IP) video over digital subscriber loop (DSL) and provides a platform for enhanced Ethernet services.
It also supports SaskTel’s high-speed Internet service, which currently reaches more than 192 communities throughout Saskatchewan and is on track to reach a total of 237 communities by the end of the year.
Lucent will supply products from the Metropolis DMX line of access multiplexers and optical amplifiers from the Metropolis Wavelength Extension to build regional transport rings in Saskatchewan. The company will also supply the new Navis Optical Management System (OMS) to provide SaskTel with advanced network management for its optical networks.
Navis OMS provides multiple network management functions, including element management, service provisioning and service assurance within optical networks. SaskTel will be using the OMS to perform single-user, automated provisioning of optical networks and services.
