Retelit Deploys High-Performance Network In Italy With Ciena

Ciena® Corporation (NASDAQ: CIEN), the network specialist, and Retelit Spa, a leading Italian provider of data services and infrastructure, have announced the deployment of Ciena’s converged packet optical solutions to modernize Retelit’s network and improve efficiency, latency and scalability. By deploying this high-performance, low-latency network in its backbone and throughout metropolitan locations, Retelit can offer a range of new services and support key applications like high-frequency trading, e-healthcare and replication of real-time data.

With high-performance capacity scalable to 100G per wavelength serving heavily utilized backbone routes and eight metropolitan networks in major Italian cities, Retelit can provide its wholesale, enterprise and public sector customers with the increased network capacity and flexibility needed to meet subscribers’ needs. The initial phase of the project, upgrading the backbone from Milan to Rome, is expected to be implemented by the end of October; the remaining network upgrades will be completed in future phases.

Powered by Ciena’s industry-leading 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, equipped with third generation WaveLogic Coherent Optical Processors and the unique feature of integrated packet switching and traffic management alongside Optical Transport Network (OTN) transport solutions, Retelit will be able to tailor service level agreements to meet each customer’s specific requirements. With the improved efficiencies of the new network, Retelit will be able to expand to reach more customers, and offer data transport speeds up to 10 times faster than what is available on the network today.

Additionally, Ciena’s One Control Unified Management System will provide comprehensive unified management, visualization and end-to-end control of the network. This will allow Retelit to rapidly deploy new service offerings, and coordinate across network protocol layers to ensure efficient use of critical network assets and bandwidth optimization.

“Ciena’s converged packet optical solutions will enable us to reduce the complexities in our network, while exponentially increasing the capacity to meet the growing market demand caused by the dramatically rising use of high-capacity broadband services and technologies. We selected Ciena because of its proven track record and expertise in equipping service providers to modernize their networks and accommodate user’s demands for high-bandwidth services and applications like high-frequency trading and e-healthcare applications,” states Enrico Mondo, General Manager at Retelit.
