Alcatel gains contract to provide digital microwave system to the Guangdong Provincial broadcast network

Alcatel, a provider of communications solutions, has been awarded a contract by China based Guangdong Provincial Radio, Film and Television Bureau to convert the Bureau's TV broadcast and backbone transmission network from an analog microwave system to a digital microwave system.

The win represents Alcatel’s most substantial contract in China to date for the deployment of its Alcatel 9600 LSY Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) digital microwave solution. The contract was won through Alcatel Shanghai Bell, Alcatel’s flagship Chinese company.

Under the terms of the contact, Alcatel will deploy its microwave transmission solution in 21 cities and towns across Guangdong Province (including Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Foshan and Zhanjiang). Once the digital microwave solution has been deployed, it will enable the Bureau to deliver a number of digital TV services such as web browsing and private broadcasting. Deployment is expected to be completed by the end of 2005.

Said Marc Rouanne, COO of Alcatel’s mobile communications activities: I am confident that our ability to provide customers with future-proof platforms that enable customers to develop a broad applications portfolio will enable us to contribute to the development of the Broadcasting and Television industry in China.

Alcatel has previously been awarded an initial contract for its Alcatel 9600 microwave solution in October 2004 by the Radio, Film and Television Bureau of Shandong Province – the first solution of its kind in China’s Broadcast and Television industry.
