Alcatel-Lucent provides advanced fiber-optic technology for China railways

Beijing and Nanning Railway Bureaus have selected Alcatel-Lucent to upgrade the ‘backbone’ communications networks of rail lines in China. The authorities will deploy Alcatel-Lucent optical transport technology to enhance communications links and support mission critical rail operations, including operational communications, signalling and video surveillance, to ensure safe and on-time passenger journeys.

China Railways will deploy the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS), the latest generation DWDM optical solution, on the Beijing Railway Bureau’s third ring, which connects Beijing to towns and cities via a rail network spanning 623km. This will dramatically increase the performance of the communication network with the implementation of 10G-speed technology, and lay the foundation for future 100G services.

For the Nanning Railway Bureau, Alcatel-Lucent will upgrade the 200km line between the cities of Guilin and Liuzhou to cost-effectively upgrade the embedded SDH solution with advanced multiservice switching. This allows the network to flexibly support high-bandwidth services and prepare for future interoperation with mobile ultra-broadband networks.
