Vincent Communications and Controls Taps Ciena to Expand Service Offerings


Network operator addresses customer demand for 10GbE and 1GbE services, while laying the foundation for future network requirements

Vincent Communications and Controls Ltd. expands its service capabilities by deploying Ciena’s packet networking platforms to address growing bandwidth needs for mobile backhaul and business services.

By investing in Ciena’s service delivery and aggregation platforms, Vincent Communications gains a scalable, reliable and cost-effective solution to expand and manage their service offerings.

Vincent Communications is implementing solutions from Ciena’s 39xx series of Service Delivery Switches (3916 and 3942) and 51xx series of Service Aggregation Switches (5142 and 5160), each of which targets specific network requirements for form and function while offering low power and footprint requirements.

By deploying Ciena’s 3906mvi Service Virtualization Switch, Vincent Communications leverages Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technology that allows for flexible deployment of virtual functions needed at the customer premise. The switch allows enterprise and mobile backhaul applications to leverage virtualized functions when and where needed, benefiting from significantly reduced costs and advanced monitoring and maintenance capabilities.

Vincent Communications’ implementation of Ciena’s packet solutions allows the operator to offer MEF CE2.0 services over a resilient network, with assured SLA guarantees for the most mission-critical applications for its key customer base – the oil and gas industry.

“Our network must be flexible to support our current offerings, while we simultaneously invest in infrastructure for advanced services made possible with NFV. We selected Ciena’s packet-based solutions as they not only fulfill our current service needs, but provide an agile framework where we can grow our network and ultimately our customer base,” explained, Scott Vincent, Chief Executive Officer, Vincent Communications.

“Each of our customers face unique challenges that demand solutions to meet a myriad of market requirements. Our approach to truly customize solutions, taking into account such elements as simplifying service deployment while deploying advanced functions quickly, reliably and cost-effectively, sets us apart in the market,” said, Bruce Hembree, Vice President and General Manager of North America Sales, Ciena.
