INDATEL Selects Cyan's Z-Series Packet-Optical Transport Platform and Blue Planet SDN Software for 100G Upgrade

Cyan and INDATEL announced that INDATEL has selected Cyan's Z-Series packet-optical transport platform (P-OTP) and Blue Planet SDN software for its first-ever 100G deployment. The upgrade to 100G connectivity improves aggregation and scale for the INDATEL carrier members to enable more efficient and cost-effective service delivery. Cyan's Z-Series P-OTP family, coupled with the Blue Planet SDN platform for multi-layer network management and A-to-Z service provisioning, is the solution for network operators upgrading and evolving their metro and regional networks to 100G. The Z-Series set the new industry benchmark for 100G packet-optical convergence, density and flexibility, providing a carrier-grade solution that integrates 100GbE packet switching and transport, 100G coherent OTN transponding and muxponding, and 96-channel, multi-degree ROADM capable of transporting up to 10 Tbps on a single fiber. With Cyan's scalable 100G solution, carriers, service providers and data center operators are able to satisfy all requirements for interconnecting high-capacity packet and optical networks while aggregating and transporting wavelength and Ethernet services with optimal efficiency.
