Teknovus and Dongwon Announce Win at Korea Telecom.Teknovus Continues Deployments at Largest Korean Carrier
PETALUMA, Calif. -- Dongwon, a leading supplier of optical communications Optical communications
The transmission of speech, data, video, and other information by means of the visible and the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. equipment in Korea and Teknovus, the leading provider of Gigabit Ethernet An Ethernet standard that transmits at 1 Gbps. Used mostly to connect high-end workstations and servers as well as for network backbones, Gigabit Ethernet transmits full duplex from point to point using switches and half duplex in a shared environment (CSMA/CD) using a hub. Optical Network (G-EPON) chipsets for deployment of triple-play services in broadband access networks, announced that Korea Telecom (KT) has selected the Dongwon Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH (Fiber To The Home) See FTTP. ) solution, based on Teknovus' chips, for major deployment throughout Korea. KT, Korea's largest service provider, is deploying Dongwon's FTTH solution as part of its nationwide broadband network that will deliver premium grade triple-play services.
Teknovus is the sole winner of KT's current benchmark performance test. Dongwon represents Teknovus' third equipment vendor win with KT. Previously, Teknovus announced wins with Samsung and Corecess. Teknovus has extensive current and ongoing deployments throughout Korea through its equipment vendors.
KT stated, "Teknovus' chipsets are continuing to fulfill our requirements for enabling advanced video services while meeting strict QoS (Quality of Service) performance and cost parameters. Teknovus' Turbo EPON See PON. provides KT with the roadmap to support faster and faster speeds for advanced video services."
Dongwon's FTTH solution enables service providers to cost-effectively deliver triple-play services over a passive FTTH network. Mr. Dong Ho Lee, Senior Vice President of IP/Optical Networks of Dongwon, remarked, "Our winning solution, based on Teknovus' chips, was selected for deployment following rigorous testing by KT. With Teknovus, we are supporting KT's transition from a copper-based, last-mile network to a fiber-based infrastructure, taking advantage of lower OPEX See CAPEX. while adding premium services. We are matching the cost of VDSL See DSL.
VDSL - Very high bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line at 1000 times the speed. Teknovus is carrier-grade. Their Turbo EPON provides us with a roadmap to 10G systems."
"We are delighted to announce our third win with KT," stated Mr. Greg Caltabiano, President & CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization.
