HANOVER, Md.-- Ciena Corporation (NYSE: CIEN), the network specialist, today announced that the Japan-U.S. Cable Network successfully completed a 200G trial over a segment of its network on the U.S. West Coast, highlighting the flexibility and scalability of Ciena’s submarine solution and confirming the viability of 16QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) 200G submarine deployments using Ciena’s WaveLogic coherent optical technology. The trial demonstrates how 16QAM technology can be leveraged to double the number of bits per wavelength to support twice the amount of data compared to standard 100G technology.

Key Facts:

  • The Japan-U.S. Cable Network is made up of 35 consortium members, including leading global service providers such as CenturyLink, KDDI, NTT Communications, SoftBank Telecom and Verizon.
  • The trial established a 200G capacity link using 16QAM modulation over Ciena’s 6500 Packet Optical platform, equipped with WaveLogic coherent optical processors.
  • Giving Japan-U.S. Cable sustainable options to meet increasing customer demands, this technology drives cost savings associated with extending the life of cable infrastructure as well as the financial benefits of an attractive cost-per-bit of higher-capacity 200G transmission.
  • The trial was successfully conducted earlier this year on a 630 km submarine segment in California, and builds on the successful deployment in 2013 of Ciena’s 100G submarine solutions across the Japan-U.S. Cable Network.

    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.
