Reliance Globalcom picks Ciena for cable network upgrade

Nov 28, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Network specialist Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ: CIEN) said that Reliance Globalcom has selected Ciena's market-leading WaveLogic coherent optical 100G networking solutions to upgrade its FLAG Europe-Asia submarine network.


Based on Ciena's OPn architecture, the 100G network will bring massive capacity increases to a route that connects Egypt and Jordan to satisfy customer demand for high-bandwidth services, while using its existing fibre infrastructure to support growing bandwidth requirements.

As part of the network upgrade, Reliance Globalcom will deploy a 100G DWDM system with Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical Platform equipped with WaveLogic coherent optical line interfaces. Using principles of Ciena's OPn network architecture, the upgrade will allow Reliance Globalcom to support the surge of high-bandwidth applications such as cloud computing, video conferencing, business continuity/disaster recovery, data centre connectivity, and storage area networking, in addition to ever increasing Internet traffic.

Reliance Communications Ltd. founded by the late Shri Dhirubhai H Ambani (1932-2002) is the flagship company of the Reliance Group. The Reliance Group currently has a net worth in excess of Rs. 90,000 crore ($17.7 billion), cash flows of Rs. 8,000 crore ($1.6 billion), net profit of Rs. 3,200 crore ($0.6 billion).
