PETALUMA, Calif. -- Cyan today announced the availability of a single-slot 100G coherent transponder for the Z-Series family of packet-optical transport platforms (P-OTPs). The new DTM 100G sets an industry benchmark for density and flexibility by delivering 100G in a single slot module supporting the full range of optical reach capabilities. In addition to dramatically reducing the cost of delivering 100G transport services, and increasing density for core applications, the DTM-100G gives service providers unprecedented flexibility in their deployments. This flexibility is the result of integrated support for short, medium, long, and extended reach C form-factor pluggable (CFP) client interfaces. Unlike prevailing solutions, this means service providers and data center operators are assured that a single slot will satisfy all optical reach requirements. Early deployments of the DTM 100G include Great Plains Communications in the US, among others. When coupled with Blue Planet, Cyan’s software-defined network (SDN) system developed for service providers and other network operators, the DTM-100G is one of the first SDN-based 100G solutions. This will eventually allow virtual machines to be spun up in large data centers to dynamically create 100G data center interconnect (DCI) circuits for large scale backup and disaster recovery. “The ability to deliver coherent 100G transport services in such a compact form factor is unprecedented,” said Michael Hatfield, Cyan president. “It is in keeping with the philosophy that has characterized Cyan from the beginning—harnessing the latest technical innovations to help our customers scale their networks while driving down costs. Reducing slot consumption, improving optical reach flexibility, and eliminating the need for external modules yields a 100G solution that can be deployed in scale.” Cyan Inc.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
