Ciena Bags Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier Deal
October 25, 2021
Telekom Global Carrier has advanced its Lambda Connect offering and
announces the launch of 400GE service for its customers by utilizing the
latest WaveLogic 5 optical innovations from Ciena enabling a leap from
100GE to 400GE services anywhere on our deployed network infrastructure.
This service is designed to meet the demands for high capacity, speed
and scale necessitated by networks to handle exponentially increasing
volumes of data and content.
Compared to current 100GE Lambda offerings, this service delivers a
fourfold increase in transfer speed with the robust performance required
from network infrastructures. It provides the equivalent of 4 x 100GE
via one single 400GE client interface. Accordingly, less circuits are
needed, which optimizes tracking and monitoring efforts and reduces the
number of hand offs and points of failure.
new 400GE Lambda service is just what our customers have been asking
for. In light of growing data-intensive technologies such as Cloud, 5G,
machine learning, AI and the like, we have developed a future-proof,
scalable solution to serve ever-expanding capacity demands,” said Rolf
Nafziger, SVP Deutsche Telekom Global Business and Global Carrier.
“Higher cost efficiency and mutual sustainability goals are also
achievable with this new service enabled by reductions in not only
equipment, power and space, but also 75% reductions in cross-connect
fees when necessary.”
“We have a long-standing history with Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier,
and this latest network build is a significant step in bringing critical
400GE connectivity to the pan-European region,” said Jamie Jeffries,
Vice President and General Manager, International, Ciena. “Our
collaboration extends from optical innovations to business outcomes,
bringing to life new applications and digital experiences for Deutsche
Telekom Global Carrier’s customers.”
