Lucent captures optical transport network deal

Lucent Technologies Inc. won a five-year, $94 million to implement a multicountry, high-speed optical transport network for the Army.

Optical telecommunications networks comprise a set of network elements connected by optical fiber link. They can provide transport, multiplexing, routing, management and supervision of optical channels carrying client signals.

Under the contract for the Army's European Dense Wave Division Multiplex Optical Transport Network project, Lucent Technologies will provide network integration services and optical equipment and software. The company also will plan and deploy protected dense wave division multiplex rings for sites in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Italy.

Lucent Technologies of Murray Hills, N.J., makes telecom equipment and products for communications network infrastructures. The company, which has about 30,500 employees and had annual revenue of $9.4 billion for fiscal 2005, ranks No. 64 on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list federal prime contractors.
