Ciena Corporation to Establish New Corporate Campus in Kanata North Business Park

Ciena Corporation has announced the establishment of a new corporate campus in Kanata North Business Park, Ottawa in Ontario. The new location, at the corner of March Road and Terry Fox Drive, includes an 18-year lease on one existing building and a 15-year lease on two additional buildings, which are set to see construction begin this spring. Employees are expected to begin transitioning to the existing building later this year and the new buildings in 2017. With advanced technology lab, the new campus will comprise approximately 425,000 sq. ft. of space. It will bring Ciena's entire Ottawa team together in a single location that will serve as a centre of excellence for Ciena's employees, customers and partners across Canada and worldwide.

Ciena Corporation Introduces New Data Center Interconnect

Ciena Corporation is introducing a new data center interconnect (DCI) platform that allows cloud, Internet content providers and data center providers to quickly scale bandwidth and support high-speed data transfer, virtual machine migration and disaster recovery/backup between data centers. With an extremely compact design that helps reduce real estate costs, Ciena’s new Waveserver stackable interconnect platform also provides 60% more capacity per rack unit and nearly 20 terabits per fiber versus competing available platforms, to support surging bandwidth demands of web-scale data centers. According to Ovum, overall global DCI revenue in 2014 grew more than 16%, reaching $2.5 billion. Nearly one-half of all DCI spending in 2014 was from communications service providers (CSPs), while the Internet content provider (ICP) segment grew 64% year over year. Ovum expects overall global revenue to hit $4.2 billion by 2019. Purpose built for web-scale metro DCI applications, Waveserver is a highly-compact, stackable interconnect system that provides a reliable, high-capacity link to interconnect multiple data centers within a metro area. With Ciena’s OPn architecture approach and a set of open APIs, network providers can program Waveserver manually or remotely to quickly establish a connection via any smart device. Waveserver acts as a 'bandwidth server' to provide 'server like' deployment and provisioning. Waveserver provides significantly lower cost per transported bit, lower cost per bit per rack, and lower power consumption versus available competing products. It provides a total of 800G of input and output made up of 400G Ethernet clients plus 400G of line capacity in just one rack unit. It also frees network owners from having to upgrade their hardware as they increase their client rates by supporting an arbitrary mix of 10, 40, and 100GbE clients. Emulation Cloud is a new, open application development environment designed to allow data center operators, application developers and other third-party developers to create, test and fine-tune customized web-scale applications tailored to their specific needs. Hosted in the cloud, Ciena’s Emulation Cloud helps accelerate DevOps and ease the integration with IT systems.
