By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor


Ciena Corporation, a provider of network and telecom platform deployment solutions, revealed that Cable&Wireless Worldwide has selected its 6500 Packet-Optical Platform to deploy high-capacity metropolitan networks in two key Asian commercial centers, Hong-Kong and Singapore.


Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, equipped with WaveLogic Coherent Optical Processors and supporting coherent 100G and mesh networking, enables CWW to extract more capacity out of existing fiber optic cables.

Ciena’s 40G and 100G solutions are based on technologies such as coherent detection, DP QPSK modulation, and advanced electronic digital signal processing techniques.

The telecom platform deployment solution will provide CWW with a highly flexible and resilient commercial solution that meets the integrated communications and data hosting services deployment timelines. It will also facilitate the transport of today's increasingly bandwidth-hungry applications while improving network economics.

"Hong Kong and Singapore are both dynamic markets experiencing an explosive demand for bandwidth,” said Gavin Tait, director, network planning and implementation, Asia, Cable&Wireless Worldwide, in a statement. “Cable&Wireless Worldwide is committed to being ahead of the curve with the most reliable, flexible and scalable network infrastructure that will fuel the success of our enterprise customers in those markets.”

Based on mesh architecture, the live network allows the carrier to meet service-level agreement (SLA) requirements. It also ensures that the CWW network can scale to meet future capacity demands across the region.

For this project, Ciena developed a deployment strategy through an expert engineering and consultative approach to support the CWW's growing presence and competitive position in Asia. 

"Hong Kong and Singapore are both dynamic markets experiencing an explosive demand for bandwidth,” Philippe Morin, senior vice president, global field operations, Ciena added. “Cable&Wireless Worldwide is committed to being ahead of the curve with the most reliable, flexible and scalable network infrastructure that will fuel the success of our enterprise customers in those markets.”
