The deployment uses Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platforms, powered by WaveLogic coherent technology, in conjunction with ROADMs (reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers), to deliver connectivity across the whole of Romania.

With WaveLogic Encryption, GTS will be able to incorporate encryption services for customers in the public sector who require enhanced security. GTS is also leveraging Ciena Services for remote service migration and commissioning.

Razvan Stoica, Managing Director at GTS Telecom, said: “The network provides improved scalability, security, capacity and low latency to support the growing high-bandwidth requirements of our customers. It’s also a real benefit to be able to increase capacity quickly going forward, to meet future demands.”

Virginie Hollebecque, Vice President and Leader of EMEA at Ciena, said: “GTS Telecom is seeing exponential growth in the demand for capacity across Romania. We designed a network that allows GTS to meet customers’ needs, while enhancing performance and security to support an increasing number of customers and use cases.”
