The carrier, which is headquartered in Waynesboro, Va., signed an $88 million pact with Alcatel-Lucent, which will provide Rev. A gear. Specifically, Alcatel-Lucent will provide its IP/MPLS solution, which includes the 7750 Service Router and 7450 Ethernet Service Switch to deploy an IP routing and IP RAN backhaul solution.
