Middle East-Europe Terrestrial System Uses Ciena® Converged Packet Optical Networking Solutions to Give Regional and International Carriers

In order to accommodate increasing international bandwidth demand, the Middle East-Europe Terrestrial System (MEETS) is using Ciena® converged packet optical networking solutions to give regional and international carriers, as well as local and global ICT companies, access to high-capacity, scalable, wholesale network services to extend network reach, enable high-bandwidth enterprise and datacenter traffic, and facilitate LTE 4G mobile expansions. Key Facts include: MEETS, a network consortium made up of du, Vodafone, Zain, and Zajil, is a 100G terrestrial optical transport network (OTN) connecting key Gulf states, the UAE, Qatar, KSA Bahrain and Kuwait, and is expected to connect the region to Europe. As the high-capacity fiber optic cable system is built alongside an existing power transmission network it is cost-effective and reliable, providing reduced service latency and geographic diversity across the Middle East; With Cienas 6500 packet-optical platform, equipped with 100G WaveLogic coherent optics and packet/OTN switching, MEETS can efficiently scale and interconnect large numbers of users. OneConnect Intelligent Control Plane creates a programmable network and provides the ability to customize service level guarantees with multiple levels of protection and restoration options; Cienas OneControl unified management software allows MEETS to rapidly turn up services with full visibility across all layers and advanced service assurance applications ensure efficient troubleshooting.

Ciena Introduces New Capabilities for Service Providers

Ciena Corporation has introduced new capabilities for service providers, internet content and cloud providers. These innovations embrace the web-scale IT philosophy, delivering increased bandwidth and improved economics through greater efficiency, network automation and agility, and include extending the reach and capacity of submarine networks, simplifying and cost reducing metro and regional networks, and speeding deployment of small cell backhaul to improve coverage in an increasingly mobile-first world. By supporting the concepts of web-scale IT in networking, Ciena is arming network providers to take advantage of the trends associated with this web-scale dynamic. Building on Ciena's industry leadership in optical networking, packet and software and leveraging its OP©ú architecture approach to transform capacity into capability, these new capabilities include new WaveLogic 3 Extreme and Nano chipsets, the Coherent Select architecture for metro applications, and new small cell/mobile backhaul capabilities. Ciena's new WaveLogic 3 Extreme chipset provides maximum bandwidth at any distance for Ciena's 6500 and 5430 converged packet optical platforms. It doubles capacity of metro and regional networks and combined with Flexible Grid technology has enabled up to 85% greater capacity in submarine networks. Already deployed by Verizon, Southern Cross, Japan-US Cable Network and Trans Pacific Express, these enhancements are essential for meeting web-scale demands in metro, regional and trans-oceanic networks. The new WaveLogic 3 Nano chipset, being implemented across Ciena's 6500 and 8700 platforms, recognizes that some web-scale applications need power and space efficiency more than raw capacity. WaveLogic 3 Nano is custom-tailored for metro economics, allowing high 100G densities in a much smaller footprint and using lower electrical power consumption. Ciena's new Coherent Select photonic architecture creates a simple, flexible metro architecture that is purpose-built for high-capacity user-to-content connectivity essential for today's web-scale dynamics. Leveraging sophisticated software, Coherent Select paired with the native receiver tunability of WaveLogic chipsets, enables service providers to cost-effectively bring 100G closer to the metro using a simple-to-deploy connectivity model that provides the right economics for wide deployment scalability. Content-rich web-scale applications are increasingly consumed via mobile devices. Addressing mobile congestion, coverage, and quality of experience issues, Ciena's enhanced mobile backhaul solutions help mobile operators and wholesale backhaul providers rapidly deploy wireless small cells, both indoor and outdoor. Ciena's new 3904 and 3905 Service Delivery Switches leverage Ciena's field-proven packet leadership to ensure the backhaul portion of the small cell radio antennas is always available and that service level agreements (SLAs) are maintained.
