Ciena to Accelerate Deployment of 10 Gigabit Ethernet Services

Ciena Corporation has announced new packet networking solutions designed to help network operators accelerate the adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services by changing the economics of metro packet aggregation. Driven by increased capacity requirements to provide everything from mobile data services and backhaul to enterprise data and cloud services - including dynamic bandwidth on-demand - today’s operators are seeking scalable, cost-effective aggregation and service delivery at the network edge. With Ciena’s new 5160 and 5142 Service Aggregation Switches, operators and large enterprises can now deploy robust, small form-factor platforms that enable efficient delivery and aggregation of large quantities of data at speeds of 1GbE to 10GbE while meeting increasingly stringent SLAs.
