GTS Central Europe, a provider of telecom solutions and data center services in Central and Eastern Europe, has deployed Ciena’s packet optical solutions to upgrade its network to 100G.
The deployment will provide improved scalability, capacity and low latency to support the growing bandwidth needs of GTS’ enterprise and government customers as well as 100GE backbone services to enable efficient connectivity for carriers and content providers to their regional networks.
“Ciena’s converged packet optical technology allows us to provide capacity and latency improvements to our international networks, and support bandwidth-intensive services and enterprise applications,” said Sunny Kumar, vice president of marketing and business development at GTS.
GTS selected the 6500 Packet-Optical Platform with WaveLogic 3 Coherent Optical Processors to provide 100G capacity along its high-traffic routes in Poland, Czech Republic and Germany.
Ciena’s 6500 platform has the ability to support 100GE services in addition to unregenerated 100G wavelengths over distances of 1400 kms on GTS’ transport network.
“With our converged packet optical solutions, GTS’ upgraded network will do just that to meet the growing transport and latency sensitive needs of their customers in the CEE region and beyond,” said Nick Walden, regional managing director, Northern Europe at Ciena.
