KVH, a Japan-based IT services and data center services provider for the Asia Pacific region, is using equipment from Cyan to roll out what the two parties assert is the first 100 Gigabit Ethernet service in Japan.

Cyan has supplied elements of its Z-Series packet optical transport platforms equipped with the DTM-100G coherent transponder module. KVH successfully completed field trials of the new service earlier this year using the Cyan Z-Series packet-optical transport platform, XC-2800 2.8-Tbps multi-layer switch fabric, and the coherent transponder module.

KVH plans to deploy the new services in several major Japanese markets with multiple service quality levels and at what it asserts is highly competitive prices. According to an announcement on KVH's website, the company also will use the 6500 Packet Optical Platform from Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ:CIEN) in parts of its network to support the new services roll out.

"As KVH has been experiencing overwhelming customer demand for higher-capacity network services, we are excited to be launching KVH 100 Gigabit Ethernet Service, and are proud to be offering this service as the first of its kind in Japan,” said Yoshiyuki Hamada, vice president, Systems & Technology of KVH. “We're looking forward to working with Cyan to deploy highly reliable, high-performance solutions to our customers as a neutral network services provider."

According to Andy Wu, Cyan vice president of Sales for the Asia Pacific region, "KVH has long been recognized as a technology leader in Asia and their delivery of 100G services to major metropolitan areas throughout Japan is just the latest example of that leadership. Cyan is pleased to be able to leverage its compact, flexible, cost-effective Z-Series platform and advanced Blue Planet software-defined network (SDN) system to help KVH meet the demanding requirements of its customers."
