Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ: CIEN) strengthens its positions in UK Telecom Market.

Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ: CIEN) says that Ethernet aggregator Vaioni has selected equipment from its Carrier Ethernet portfolio to bring enhanced Ethernet service offerings to enterprises, carriers, and cloud providers. Vaioni is an independent provider of next-generation Ethernet services, VPLS, and private WAN services across the UK
Ciena’s Carrier Ethernet Service Delivery (CESD) portfolio has been rolled out across Vaioni’s UK network infrastructure, enabling the operator to extend the reach of its core network connectivity in its home market, deliver a full suite of next-generation Ethernet services, and maximize service availability while reducing the cost and complexity of turning up new services
After a detailed analysis and evaluation, Vaioni has chosen to standardize on Ciena’s Carrier Ethernet Service Delivery portfolio for all network infrastructure equipment across its UK network, Ciena asserts. The deployment of Ciena CESD equipment is now complete - including a 100% swap of old equipment.
Vaioni selected Ciena’s 3916, 3920, and 3930 Service Delivery Switches, as well as its 5150 Service Aggregation Switch, to build a next-generation Ethernet access and aggregation architecture capable of delivering a full suite of Ethernet services (E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree) to the wholesale carrier and enterprise markets.
The 3916 and 3920 platforms serve as customer demarcation devices, ensuring quality of service (QoS) required to correctly handle multiple customer applications.
Ciena’s 3930 and 5150 platforms are being used to deploy 10-Gbps fiber-optic rings in key metro areas across the UK. The platforms use G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching to maximize service availability on the network
Ciena compliance to G.8032 is a big advantage over competitors.

  1. Led by the DWDM transport niche, sales of optical transport equipment will approach $19 billion by 2016, according to the new Optical Transport 5-Year Forecast Report from Dell’Oro Group. DWDM sales will increase at a 10% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over the forecast period to hit $12 billion, according to the market research firm.
    “The demand for optical equipment and DWDM systems is due to what appears to be an endless need for more backhaul capacity in both fixed and mobile broadband networks,” said Jimmy Yu, vice president of optical transport market research at Dell’Oro Group.
    “There are a number of trends we expect to occur in the optical market during the next five years, with the top three being: 1) the shift to packet-based equipment, where we expect optical packet equipment sales to grow three-fold in the next five years; 2) the growing use of OTN, MPLS, and MPLS-TP for both transport and switching, which is related to the rise in optical packet equipment; and 3) the increasing demand for 40-Gbps and 100-Gbps DWDM, which will steadily rise over the next few years to contribute about 60% of the DWDM sales by 2016,” Yu added.
