Akado Telecom picks Infinera for optical network in Moscow
Infinera Corp. (NASDAQ: INFN) says it has helped Akado Telecom (trademark of KOMKOR, OJSC), a major multi-service cable network operator in the Moscow region, launch a high-speed metro fiber-optic network in Moscow and the surrounding region based on Infinera’s DTN and ATN platforms.With the new metro transport network using Infinera’s Digital Optical Network architecture, Akado will be one of the first fixed network operators in Russia to deploy a next-generation DWDM infrastructure able to support 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) services, according to the vendor.Russian service providers need to continue investing in their network infrastructure to keep up with growing bandwidth demands while ensuring scalability and maintaining a high level of service quality, says Infinera. These requirements are an important factor in securing customer loyalty, maintaining corporate reputation and intensifying competition for subscribers.Akado Telecom provides a full range of advanced communication services based on its own fiber-optic network, which extends more than 18,000 km. Akado's multi-service network provides high-speed residential Internet access, voice services, and cable TV services, as well as a broad range of enterprise services for businesses. Infinera says its DTN platform will provide a right-sized platform for the metropolitan core network and the ATN will provide a compact metro aggregation platform with a common network management system for end-to-end point-and-click transport services.With demand for bandwidth driving 10 Gigabit Ethernet services and emerging interest in 100GbE services coming from their customers, Akado Telecom needed a modern DWDM backbone network with integrated OTN switching capabilities. With its intelligent algorithms managing bandwidth utilization, Infinera says its DTN was chosen by Akado to ensure a higher level of network efficiency, at the same time providing a way to reduce operational and capital costs and ultimately lower total cost of ownership.  "The new solution we implemented offers us a flexible next generation DWDM network and intelligent tools to rapidly deploy additional bandwidth resources,” said Vitaly Klishin, business development director at Akado Group. “As one of the first service providers in Russia to offer 100GbE services, we are committed to continuously satisfying the needs of over 3,500 enterprises, 350 service providers, and over 12,000 state organizations.”
University of Utah, Utah Education Network pick Ciena for metro optical network
Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ: CIEN) says the Utah Education Network (UEN) and the University of Utah have deployed Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform to provide high-speed, high-capacity 100G connectivity between the university and its new downtown Salt Lake City data center, and to UEN member organizations.The University of Utah’s new metro fiber-optic network will connect the university to its Salt Lake City data center at speeds that will scale from 10 Gbps to 100 Gbps and beyond. This will allow the university to meet the advanced connectivity requirements of both research and general data traffic of the school, as well as UEN-connected institutions, on a converged network. In addition, extensions of the network to Provo and Logan are underway, to enable the network to serve Brigham Young University and Utah State University.Ciena’s technology will also provide high-performance optical transport to support UEN, which operates a statewide backbone for K-12 educational schools, Head Start organizations, higher education institutions, and public libraries. UEN facilitates interactive video and web conferencing, provides instructional support services, and operates a public television station (KUEN) on behalf of the Utah State Board of Regents.UEN also serves as the commercial Internet and provides connectivity between Internet2 and the state government and the Utah Telehealth Network, which connects health care providers across the state. UEN is an affiliate member of the U.S. Unified Community Anchor Network (U.S. UCAN) project that delivers network connectivity to more than 65,000 member organizations for the delivery of telemedicine, distance learning, and other applications to communities across the United States.Through a combination of grants from the National Science Foundation’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), the University of Utah and UEN combined will serve 1084 K-12 schools, 10 colleges and universities, and approximately 866,000 Utah students and educators.“In our experience, research and education organizations are increasingly challenged in their efforts to acquire, manage and distribute vast amounts of data. High-speed networks are essential because the network is an enabler to local, regional, national, and international collaboration. By serving the University of Utah, the UEN and their constituencies with high-speed, high-capacity connectivity solutions that scale, Ciena is enabling the University and UEN to connect to the broader research community and meet bandwidth needs for years to come,” said Rod Wilson, senior director of external research, Ciena.“We selected Ciena as our infrastructure provider for two reasons: Ciena is an experienced technology provider to the R&E community that focuses on understanding our complex networking needs, and its industry-leading, coherent optical solutions provide a high-capacity, resilient, and scalable optical backbone to support innovative methods of enabling advanced research and innovation by our students and faculty,” added Steve Corbató, deputy CIO, University of Utah
Ritter expands regional fiber network with packet-optical technologies from Ciena
Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ: CIEN) says Ritter Communications, an Arkansas-based communications provider, has deployed Ciena’s packet networking and converged packet-optical technologies throughout its regional fiber-optic network serving over 25,000 Internet subscribers in Arkansas and west Tennessee.With the combination of packet networking and converged packet optical transport, the expanded network will carriers with advanced Ethernet service delivery and a cost-effective means to transport high-speed data services while also enabling cellular backhaul and business services, Ciena says.Ritter is a fifth-generation family business founded in 1886. Today, Ritter owns and operates two rural local exchange carriers (RLECs) in northeast and north central Arkansas, a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) and a fiber-optic network in Jonesboro, AR. In December 2012, Ritter completed its purchase of Millington Telephone Co., Inc. and Millington CATV, Inc. which represents approximately 20,000 business and residential customers in parts of Shelby, Tipton, Haywood, and Fayette counties in West Tennessee.Ciena says its packet networking platforms, including its 5150 Service Aggregation Switch and 3930 Service Delivery Switch, provide Ritter with increased scalability and protection of services needed to meet their growing end-user demands. The platforms support leading operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM) standards, and provide service level agreement (SLA) insights, allowing Ritter to ensure more accurate service management and fault isolation across a greater number of services.Ritter is also using Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform to increase capacity and support the mobile backhaul demands of two Tier 1 U.S. wireless carriers and their migration to 4G services. The 6500 allows Ritter to scale capacity and program its network to deliver 10G and 40G wavelength services today, with the ability to scale to 100G in the future.Ritter will also leverage packet networking capabilities recently made available on the 6500 platform, which enable several Carrier Ethernet functions and provide Ritter with a cost-effective means to transport optical traffic and Ethernet services without the need to install additional Ethernet switches.Ritter’s expanded network will provide high-speed, low-latency broadband and business Ethernet services to businesses and residents in areas of Arkansas and west Tennessee which are currently faced with connectivity limitations due to a lack of resources and geographic challenges such as the divide caused by the Mississippi River.Ciena is also providing Ritter with its network management software and a range of professional services for this deployment via its Ciena Specialist Services portfolio, including installation, turn-up, and testing.“We are seeing a substantial increase in the demand for broadband connectivity as new innovations in the form of distance learning, telehealth and e-commerce take hold,” said Steve Smith, vice president of sales, Ritter Communications. “By deploying a combination of Ciena’s packet networking and converged packet optical portfolio solutions, we are ensuring that our customers across Arkansas and western Tennessee have a reliable network that has the intelligence to scale appropriately and efficiently to meet these requirements today, and in the future.
