Biznet Indonesia deploys Ciena converged packet-optical platforms

Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform
Biznet Indonesia has deployed Ciena’s converged packet-optical platforms and GeoMesh submarine solution on its new 100G fiber-optic terrestrial and submarine networks.

The main benefit to Biznet, a major telecommunication service provider in Indonesia, will be the capability to deliver affordable high-speed information and on-demand communications services to residential and business customers, said Ciena.

Biznet has a fiber optic network that spans 15,000 km, including a submarine connection to Singapore.

Biznet is utilizing Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, equipped with WaveLogic Coherent Optical Processors and switching capabilities, to deploy new services across long-distance routes, while reducing latency, power, and space requirements.

By deploying Ciena’s WaveLogic 3 Extreme coherent optics across its submarine link, Biznet is able to improve the traffic carrying capacity with greater spectral efficiency and reach to lower its total cost of ownership.

Biznet is utilizing Ciena’s software capabilities, including WaveLogic Photonics PinPoint Advanced Fiber Analytics software, which provides fiber loss profile analogous to a CT scan of the network. This allows Biznet to address trouble spots, reduce the risk of outages and decrease repair times from days to hours. Ciena’s unified management software provides service deployment and bandwidth optimization monitoring.

“To provide our customers across pan-Indonesia with a network that can meet their communication needs, we looked for a partner that can provide a scalable, more efficient network that was simpler to operate and manage,” Adi Kusma, president director, Biznet.
