PT Telkom selects Alcatel-Lucent to deploy nation-wide Data Recovery Service network


Paris.– Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE:ALU)announced today that PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (PT Telkom), the incumbent fixed telephone service provider in Indonesia, has chosen Alcatel-Lucent to deploy a national Data Recovery Service (DRS) network connecting ten cities across the country. By deploying a highly resilient IP/MPLS-based network, PT Telkom ensures business continuity for its mission critical operations.

PT Telkom is transforming its IT network by migrating the connectivity of its data centers to IP/MPLS to facilitate administrative operations such as centralized billing. Under the terms of the contract, Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its industry leading IP/MPLS solution based on the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 and 7710 Service Routers and the 7450 Ethernet Service Switch, giving service providers control over their network and allowing them to manage and troubleshoot simply and effectively. Once deployed, nation-wide data centers will be connected via a single, reliable Alcatel-Lucent IP/MPLS-based network allowing the service provider to more efficiently manage its network operations.

“The new Alcatel-Lucent Data Recovery Service network enables us to consolidate our data centers across the entire nation over a robust, highly reliable network ensuring our mission critical operations are functioning 24 hours a day,” said Rinaldi Firmansyah, PT Telkom’s Chief Executive Officer.

“We are building on our earlier success and experience in supporting PT Telkom’s optical, microwave radio and access networks,” said Frederic Rose, President of Alcatel-Lucent’s activities in Europe, Africa and Asia. “PT Telkom’s decision to migrate its critical operations to a highly reliable DRS network based on Alcatel-Lucent is a testament to the strength and flexibility of our IP/MPLS technology.”

Alcatel-Lucent IP/MPLS solutions have been selected by more than 200 service providers in more than 80 countries. During the fourth quarter of 2007, Alcatel-Lucent reinforced its #2 position in IP/MPLS edge garnering 18% of the market according to Ovum-RHK.
