Caspian, the leading supplier of advanced policy-based traffic management solutions for IP networks, announced today the successful deployment of its Media Controller solutions by Korea Telecom (KT) for the South Korean e-Government (e-Gov) project. The e-Gov project paves the way for a highly efficient digital government that provides online access, improved administrative procedures and secure, knowledge-based services for Korean citizens. Caspian’s deployment of its flow-state quality of service (QoS) technology enables KT to dynamically identify and control voice, video and data traffic and appropriately allocate bandwidth, ensuring high quality, multimedia services for e-Gov users.
“Korea Telecom’s e-government initiative represents an exciting advance in governmental efficiency and demonstrates its vision for the successful deployment of leading-edge technology,” said Brad Wurtz, Caspian president and chief executive officer. “We are excited to participate in this broad-based initiative and fulfill Korea’s e-Gov vision to provide the highest quality, multimedia solutions for its citizens.”
KT, along with other Korean telecom operators, is successfully driving the e-government project to establish an extensive network infrastructure to deliver world-class multimedia services for millions of broadband subscribers. Its deployment of the Korean e-Gov services enables government agencies to enhance communication, achieve secure Internet connectivity, and enable remote access to internal resources by mobile workers. The primary goal for KT in deploying Caspian is to enforce IP traffic management policies and guarantee QoS across the eGov network. The ability to maintain service policies simplifies the deployment and management of network resources, while enabling tailor-made configurations that support different groups of users.
