3/5/00 PSINet (Herndon, VA) has named CIENA Corp. (Linthicum, MD) as a supplier of intelligent optical networking equipment for expanding PSINet's global IP-optimized backbone network.

PSINet and CIENA have signed a three-year supply agreement for CIENA's MultiWave CoreStream and MultiWave Metro intelligent optical transport systems. Supporting PSINet's network upgrades announced last year, CIENA will supply the long-haul and short-haul systems for expanding backbone network capacity in Europe and North America for IP traffic growth.

MultiWave Metro supports a variety of survivable network topologies simultaneously, providing PSINet ring, mesh, and point-to-point logical connectivity for transporting IP traffic. In addition, says CIENA, MultiWave Metro's scalable architecture easily manages network growth in frequently unpredictable metropolitan networks.
