Taiwan's Tier One Carrier Deploys First IP-Based Communications Network Using Network Equipment Technologies High Performance Platform

Solution Enables Air Navigation and Weather Services in Taiwan, to Migrate Their TDM Circuit-Based Network to an All IP Island-Wide Network

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2011) - Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. ("NET") (NASDAQ: NWK) announced today that Chunghwa Telecom (CHT), Taiwan's tier one carrier, is deploying the first IP-based communications network for Air Navigation and Weather Services (ANWS) in Taiwan using NET's high performance NX1000 platform. The NX1000, an IP-enabled platform with an on-board IP trunk module, provided the core switch for the ANWS's communications traffic, including radar signal, voice, remote control signaling, and data channels in terminal control centers and air traffic control towers throughout southern Taiwan.

NET's NX Series high-performance networking platforms provide high-grade data transfer between storage area networks (SANs) and wide area networks (WANs) and enable secure grid computing. The NX1000 provides a flexible, cost-effective IP aggregation solution that facilitates migration of legacy traffic to IP.

The initial project was for the South Region Digital Communication Backbone Network System, which was commissioned in December 2010. The solution utilized NET's dual-shelf NX1000 with MPLS to deliver voice and data traffic through CHT's network to ANWS's 11 sites and allowed ANWS to migrate their existing TDM circuit network to an IP-based network. Other benefits of the new IP-based network included:

  • More reliable backup and re-routing features
  • Lower latencies
  • Lower error rates
  • Cost reduction of TDM leased circuits

ANWS expects to integrate the southern communications network with the 13 sites in its northern region, the Northern Region Digital Communication Backbone Network System.

"Our ability to quickly migrate ANWS's legacy TDM network to an IP environment was critical to the success of this solution. Teaming with Chunghwa Telecom, we were able to rapidly put the solution into production right away," said Francois Le, NET's Vice President, Global Sales. "We look forward to working with them to deploy the next phase of this network."
