Alcatel has won a contract with H3G to implement the Italian 3G license holder’s backbone and metropolitan transmission networks in Italy. The deal is for Alcatel to deliver its DWDM and SDH multi-service transport systems, and its new generation SDH microwave radio systems.
H3G’s national backbone will use Alcatel’s DWDM system. The backbone will cover around 6,000 km from the northern city of Turin to Palermo in the south. Alcatel’s unified network management solution will supervise H3G’s overall network. This solution is able to monitor DWDM transport infrastructures in addition to SDH fiber and radio infrastructures.
