ciena corp (CIEN) Key Developments

Colorado Department of Transportation Improves Highway Safety and Traffic Flow with Network Upgrade Powered by Ciena Corporation

Ciena Corporation announced that the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is deploying Ciena's converged packet optical and packet networking solutions to improve resiliency, capacity and manageability of its private fiber optic network that spans nearly 560 highway miles across the state. This upgrade, being completed through Colorado's Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) program, will support an increased amount of intelligent communication devices that allow travelers and transportation agencies to be better informed about roadway conditions. CDOT's transportation agencies can also use the information collected to understand traffic patterns, and then use this data to predict and alleviate traffic issues moving forward. Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical Platform will allow CDOT to support the wide range of devices that sense and optimize vehicular traffic flows, monitor weather and road conditions, and warn operators of impending delays or dangers. Ciena's 5100 and 3900 families of switches, part of its Packet Networking portfolio, will provide CDOT with a scalable and highly resilient network that can quickly add new intelligent devices to the network. CDOT will also be able to better manage, monitor and control ITS network performance using Ciena's OneControl Unified Management System, which provides complete visibility and control of the network that connects the roadside sensors and displays.

Openreach Selects Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical Platform for CPs

Openreach has announced plans to extend its suite of optical services for communications provider customers. The new capability includes 100Gbps service, which will become available during April 2014. Supported by Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical platform, the new services will reportedly enable communications providers (CPs), to transport larger amounts of data, over longer distances. The optical services will also give enterprises and storage providers the tools to offer a broader range of services and applications, including the ultra-low latency facilities required by particular industries - for example high frequency trading in the financial sector or synchronous data backup. They will also enable businesses to locate in the most strategic locations, with the assurance of having access to high bandwidth, high quality connectivity.

Bharti Airtel Selects Ciena Corporation to Expand i2i Submarine Cable

Ciena Corporation has announced that i2i, a venture of Bharti Airtel Limited, has completed a submarine network upgrade spanning from India to Singapore using Ciena's converged packet optical and network management solutions. The upgrade leverages a flexible 100G ROADM-based infrastructure that has enabled Bharti to increase capacity over the i2i cable and respond to a surging demand for high-bandwidth data services driven by both enterprise applications and an increasing use of mobile bandwidth across the region. Ciena's network management solutions bring expanded intelligence to the i2i cable, delivering rapid service turn-up & proactive fault recovery, features that are critical to managing a high-performance submarine link. The high-capacity cable spans 3,200 kilometers and connects Singapore and Chennai, India. Powered by Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, equipped with WaveLogic 3 processors, this submarine upgrade leveraged a combination of coherent optical technology and wavelength selective switching to enable rapid remote configuration of traffic across the i2i cable. A commitment to intelligent and scalable network designs, both key elements of Ciena's OPn architecture, allowed i2i to implement this upgrade quickly, ensuring that new capacity was ready and available according to Bharti's customers' demand. With Ciena's OneControl Unified Management System, i2i also benefits from simple point-and-click service provisioning to enable faster service turn-up and end-to-end visibility of network performance. OneControl also allows i2i to meet the demanding service level agreements of wholesale clients and perform rapid remote troubleshooting in the event of a network outage.
