Alcatel-Lucent has won a new deal with South-Korea-based firm SK Broadband to provide a100G fibre optic network.
Households and businesses in South Korea's capital, Seoul, and the neighbouring Gyung Gi province will be able to benefit from this new technology, the companies indicated.
The deal will enable SK Broadband to cater for rising demand for IPTV, high-definition video, high-speed internet access, voice-over IP and advanced business services.
Rajeev Singh-Molares, A-L's Asia-Pacific president, said: "SK Broadband is a top player in one of the world's most competitive markets for communications services, serving a population that has very high expectations in terms of service quality.
"Our 100G technology, proven in the global market, will dramatically expand the capacity of SK Broadband's network, helping ensure an excellent quality of experience for their subscribers."
Earlier this month, the France-based vendor signed a similar deal in China.
The news gives a further boost to the company's regional prospects, after sales at its Asia-Pac division fall 4.8 percent in Q2.
