HAMILTON, Bermuda -- Hard on the heels of the successful implementation of Ciena’s 100Gb/s solution across its 30,000km network in July 2013, Southern Cross Cable Network has stepped up again, to announce today that it will use the Ciena WaveLogic 3 platform to add an additional 500Gb/s to both cables by July 2014.

Southern Cross President and CEO Fiona Beck says “The continued expansion of our network using the best 100G technology available underpins our strategy to support the development of high-speed broadband in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and Fiji.”

“ISPs and other customers continue to acquire greater amounts of capacity in larger units from Southern Cross. This latest expansion will be our largest to date, increasing our total lit capacity across the two Southern Cross cables from 2.6Tb/s to 3.6Tb/s.”

The 2014 network expansion will be underpinned by Ciena’s flexible grid and WaveLogic optical technologies, which will increase Southern Cross’ potential capacity capability to 12Tb/s.

Ciena Corp. (NYSE: CIEN)

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.
