NOKIA: dtac picks Nokia to revamp end-to-end transport and IP core network to prepare for Carrier SDN

Press Release

* dtac will be the first mobile operator in Thailand to deploy a Software
Defined Network (SDN)-ready IP/DWDM Core to support increased bandwidth
* Network will eventually deliver ultra-broadband mobile access to more than
40 percent of the Thai population.

9 November 2016

Espoo, Finland - dtac, part of the Telenor Group and the second largest mobile
operator in Thailand, has selected the flagship products in Nokia's
IP/Optical portfolio to bolster its backbone network, becoming the first
mobile operator in Thailand to implement a software-defined network
(SDN)-ready IP/Optical network. The network will eventually deliver
ultra-broadband mobile access to more than 40 percent of Thailand's

The number of mobile subscribers in Thailand is increasing rapidly,
stimulating greater demand for advanced networks to support surging data
consumption. dtac needed a core network to handle the increased data demand,
but also with the open interfaces and the programmability necessary to
support a migration to SDN.

Nokia products, including the7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS)and the1830
Photonic Service Switch (PSS), will replace dtac's existing IP core routing
and Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) infrastructure to provide the
capacity and capabilities required to efficiently address growth in demand,
and lay the foundation for an SDN infrastructure. The deployment also
includes Nokia's security gateway for dtac's LTE network. Combined, these
platforms ensure that dtac is well positioned to meet customer bandwidth
requirements into the future while improving network flexibility and

Prathet Tankuranun, Chief Technology Officer, Total Access Communication PLC
(dtac), said:
"Over the last two years we've seen demand for mobile broadband grow
exponentially. As we prepare for future advanced technologies we've made a
strategic choice for an SDN-ready IP/Optical network because it gives us the
control and agility needed to run an efficient network that can rapidly
adjust to evolving demand patterns. This deployment with Nokia is an
important next step in our migration towards full SDN automation."

Sebastien Laurent,
head of
Nokia Thailand, said:
"Deploying Nokia's end-to-end IP/DWDM Core solution provides the foundation
for an SDN-centric network and will allow dtac to implement on-demand
services while also easing operation and maintenance demands. Deploying this
technology will make dtac the first carrier in Thailand positioned to
implement carrier SDN in preparation for the cloud era."

Key Facts:

* The Nokia 7950 XRS supports open interfaces that SDN WAN controllers can
use to program the network through mechanisms such as OpenFlow,
* The Nokia 1830 PSS brings programmability to optical transport with the
agility of touchless CDC-F wavelength routing and the world's first truly
programmable coherent interface, the Photonic Service Engine 2 with Super
Coherent technology.
* dtac is also deploying Nokia's Wavelength Routing Engine GMPLS (Generalized
Multiprotocol Label Switching) Control Plane at the optical layer to
provide automated network operation with the highest level of service
protection for maximum reliability.
* Also included in the 1830 PSS is an integrated optical time-domain
reflectometry (OTDR) card which provides enhanced troubleshooting
