Reliance Globalcom Upgrades FNAL Terrestrial Backhaul Network To Support OTN, Using Ciena’s Coherent 40G Technology

Stocks in this article: CIEN

Reliance Globalcom, a leading global provider of connectivity, hosting and managed services for multinational enterprises and carriers, has upgraded its FNAL backhaul network in the Asia region with the next generation optical transport technology from Ciena ® Corporation (NASDAQ: CIEN), the network specialist, thus building a unified platform for efficient transmission of traditional voice-centric as well as packet-based bandwidth-hungry applications.

An introduction of new business models such as content monetization, video broadcasting and distributed storage area networking are pushing network needs beyond 10 Gb/s wavelengths. Deployment of Ciena’s market-leading 6500 Packet-Optical Platform equipped with WaveLogic coherent optical processors better positions Reliance Globalcom to address this huge bandwidth demand using 40 Gb/s OTN-based wavelengths across FNAL subsea segments, and between its Taipei and Seoul points-of-presence (PoPs). Matching terrestrial backhaul capacity and performance from the cable landing station all the way back to the inland PoP is critical to building a seamless and cost-effective global network.

OTN’s ability to carry different client services over the same wavelength allows Reliance Globalcom to offer SDH and Ethernet-based solutions over the same transport platform, resulting in flexible and cost-effective service offerings for its enterprise as well as carrier customers. The upgrade allows Reliance Globalcom to offer bandwidth speeds ranging from 1 Gb/s up to 40 Gb/s, with an option for 2.5 Gb/s and 10 Gb/s between its PoP locations, over the newly deployed OTN platform.

By transparently delivering any service protocol without impacting its native characteristics on an OTN-enabled network, customers have maximum control over their services for performance monitoring and recovery during outages, thereby reducing their overall dependency on the service provider. Moreover, OTN’s advanced forward error correction (FEC) mechanism helps improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) on the transmission network, resulting in better service quality for real-time applications such as VOIP and video conferencing.
