NTT Communications Selects Alcatel-Lucent to Launch Japan's First IPv6-Compatible IP-VPN Service Based on MPLS
PARIS, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) has deployed Alcatel-Lucent's service router solution as the base for its Internet Protocol (IP) Virtual Private Network (VPN) service, which now supports both IPv4 and next generation IPv6 protocols (*IPv4/IPv6 dual stack) for enterprise users. Offered as an option for its Arcstar(TM) IP-VPN service, this is the country's first commercial IPv6 compatible IP-VPN service based on Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS).
The Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router (SR) was first deployed in 2007 to support NTT Com's IP-VPN IPv4-based service, where its reliability and flexibility were put to the test by the high demands of NTT Com's enterprise customers. Now, with IPv4 addresses approaching exhaustion, NTT Com again chose Alcatel-Lucent to upgrade its network to allow both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic to be used on a single network, offering a smooth, relatively low-cost IPv6 migration for its enterprise customers.
"This represents a key milestone in the Japanese market with NTT Com launching its IPv4/IPv6 dual stack service," said Martin Jordy, president of Alcatel-Lucent's Japan activities. "With our market-leading service router solution, we will continue to help NTT Com and its enterprise customers take advantage of the efficient and reliable advanced network services offered with this next generation Internet protocol."
Over 270 service providers in more than 100 countries around the world have selected the Alcatel-Lucent IP/MPLS portfolio as key elements of their IP transformation. According to Ovum RHK, Alcatel-Lucent holds the #2 position in the IP/MPLS Edge market segment.
