Nortel Networks has won a $19.8 million ($31 million Canadian) contract to supply fiber-optic systems for a telecom network in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan.

The deal with Chunghwa Telecom will expand the island country's fixed-line telecom broadband services, Nortel said. Chunghwa will begin service on the network next year.

"This new, high-speed, high-bandwidth backbone is expected to … provide a reliable and scalable platform for deployment of (third-generation) wireless multimedia services in the years to come," said Masood Tariq, president of Nortel's Asia-Pacific operations.

In July, Chunghwa awarded Nortel a contract for fiber-optic equipment for a network to link islands in the Taiwan Strait to the Taiwan mainland.
