LINTHICUM, Md., July 11 -- Cable & Wireless, a global telecommunications business, will be the first service provider to use CIENA's OC-192/STM-64 (10 Gb/s) intelligent optical transport systems in metropolitan area optical networks. Cable & Wireless has deployed CIENA's MultiWave Metro systems in Boston and New York to support its new OC-192 links between the two cities.
We're looking to keep our network on the leading edge of capacity, speed and flexibility, and CIENA's intelligent 10 Gb/s capabilities set the new industry standard for meeting these requirements in the local loop, said Wesley Ford, senior director of Transmission Engineering at Cable & Wireless.
Cable & Wireless began deploying CIENA's MultiWave Metro systems in 20 US cities last year, and is continuing Metro deployments in 40 additional cities through 2000.
