NEW DELHI: AIS, Thailand’s leading mobile service provider, has selected Alcatel-Lucent to deploy the 100G optical transport network in that country to meet the growing demand for data capacity.


The demand for data capacity is being created by increasing ownership of smartphones and tablet devices, as well as by tourism, a major element of the local economy.

AIS will deploy Alcatel-Lucent’s industry-leading 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) optical platform, combining it with elements of the existing 10G optical network.

As a result, Alcatel-Lucent will help cost-effectively transform the AIS network, allowing the operator to provide high-speed, ultra-broadband Internet access in the face of demand which is doubling year-on-year.


Alcatel-Lucent is upgrading the network from Bangkok and out to the North and Northeast regions of Thailand. The work on the project will be completed during the first half of 2015.

“AIS has selected Alcatel-Lucent as a new DWDM vendor in our network as they managed to bring together a business proposal composed of the best products, the best prices and the best people,” said Weerawat Kiattipongthaworn, SVP, Operations, AIS.

“Together with our partner Smart Revolution, we have been able to find the best combination between ALU products amazing capabilities and SRC very efficient services to bring a differentiated proposal to AIS,” said Sebastien Laurent, Managing Director, Alcatel-Lucent Thailand.
