Ericsson Wins DSL Expansion Contract in China

May 19, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Ericsson (Sweden) has been awarded a contract by Jiangxi Nanchang Telecom, part of China Telecom, to expand the operator's digital subscriber line (DSL) network in Nanchang, Jiangxi Province, China. This is the second order placed by China Telecom for Ericsson's Ethernet DSL Access solution, which features the world's smallest DSL access multiplexer.

Ericsson will provide Jiangxi Nanchang Telecom with asymmetric DSL (ADSL) lines in the capital Nanchang, mostly for residential subscribers. The ADSL lines will be delivered using Ericsson's new ultra-compact, highly scalable, Ethernet DSL access solution, a cornerstone of Ericsson's public Ethernet offering.
