Korean Broadcasting System selects Alcatel-Lucent’s Wireless LAN solution


Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has been selected to supply wireless Local Area Network (LAN) solutions to Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), South Korea’s leading public broadcaster and one of the biggest television networks in Korea.

The Alcatel-Lucent’s advanced solution enables employees at KBS’ headquarters in Seoul to work from anywhere within the building thus improving their productivity. For instance, KBS reporters can write articles and efficiently transmit data regardless of where they are in the building. Management of the network access will be done through security authorization servers. The WLAN network implementation was completed in August and various applications such as WiFi will be offered to users.

The Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess WLAN solution offers advanced security and authentication functions, while providing a centralized management system that can handle up to 512 access points. Additionally, the system can be equipped with up to four modules for large-scaled network users, and provide 48 ports of 10/100Mbps PoE (Power over Ethernet) interfaces.

“We expect that the wireless LAN services will add to employees’ convenience, and will increase their work productivity in a completely secured environment,” said Kang-Won Seo, leader of IT Infrastructure team, Digital Media Division of KBS.

“This is a significant achievement for us in expanding our footprint in the wireless LAN business in Korea. It provides inroads for Alcatel-Lucent to offer our wireless LAN solution to government agencies, educations, and medical centers in the future,” said John Yang, President of Alcatel-Lucent activities in Korea.

Earlier this year, Alcatel-Lucent won a project with Taegu Science, strengthening its leadership in the wireless LAN solution market.
