JULY 21, 2010 -- Ciena Corp. and Transtelco, a regional operator serving businesses and carriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, announced the implementation of a 400-kilometer high-capacity network span using Ciena’s WDM transport technology.

The new link is the longest span in Transtelco’s network, adding route diversity, redundancy, and bandwidth availability. Transtelco has also deployed additional platforms from Ciena’s packet-optical transport portfolio to aggregate traffic onto the point-to-point link and increase connectivity to the operator’s metro rings.

Transtelco provides metro and long-haul transport, dedicated IP access, and co-location and voice termination services as a wholesale carrier and directly to end-user customers, ranging from small and medium businesses to enterprises. With Ciena’s technology in place, Transtelco can combine its data center connectivity and transport services as-needed over the existing infrastructure, giving the operator increased flexibility to meet the needs of customers requiring additional capacity and network service points, says a company representative.

Transtelco deployed Ciena’s CoreStream Agility Optical Transport System and CN 4200 FlexSelect Advanced Service Platform for the network expansion.
