GlobeNet, a wholesale provider of telecom infrastructure in the Americas, has selected Ciena technology to deliver 200G wavelengths along its 23,500 km fiber optic subsea cable system across the Americas.
The deployment will help GlobeNet improve its network resiliency, increase system capacity, and reduce latency.
GlobeNet is a wholesale telecommunications company offering a variety of international data capabilities suitable for carriers and service providers looking to expand their proprietary network infrastructure.
By implementing Ciena’s GeoMesh Extreme solution, including the 6500 Packet-Optical Platform powered by WaveLogic Ai coherent optics, GlobeNet can guarantee network availability by proactively addressing potential faults using software intelligence and automation.
To increase the capacity and redundancy of GlobeNet’s subsea network, Ciena’s solution is configured with a Packet/OTN architecture, ensuring multi-site connectivity with 200G wavelengths to handle data growth. This added resiliency against fault scenarios provides service assurance for GlobeNet to protect the large amount of capacity carried by WaveLogic Ai. Additionally, Ciena’s Blue Planet Manage, Control, Plan (MCP) software improves network visibility through real-time software control.
“We pride ourselves on our ability to offer customers a variety of capabilities, from carrier Ethernet services to managed colocation environments and network virtualization. Our investment in Ciena’s network solutions highlights our commitment to providing customers with secure and reliable data services, even in the face of the unpredictable,” said, Eduardo Falzoni, CEO, GlobeNet.
“This deployment is a testament to our experience interconnecting the world with open submarine networks through a combination of flexible network solutions and support team. This resilient, cost-effective solution will provide GlobeNet with the highest capacity available, along with the ability to scale and create a more adaptive network,” explained, Ian Clarke, Vice President, Global Submarine Systems, Ciena.
