Linthicum, MD--CIENA Corporation today announced that Global TeleSystems (GTS) (Frankfurt) will deploy CIENA's MultiWave CoreStream intelligent optical transport systems in its trans-European optical fiber network.

The deployment of CIENA's open-architecture CoreStream systems for OC-192 transmission (10Gbps), which is scalable up to 96 channels per fiber pair, will enable GTS to continue offering one of the largest, highest capacity IP and broadband networks across Europe.

GTS anticipates placing orders for CIENA systems valued at approximately $100 million for the build-out of its network.

CIENA's CoreStream systems will be deployed as an overbuild to GTS's existing trans-European network, providing IP and bandwidth services across Europe and carrying most of the traffic generated from GTS's e*Business sales force in more than 80 cities. With points of presence in more than 50 European cities, the GTS network currently carries high-speed Internet, video, data and voice traffic for more than 150 international carriers, Internet service providers, broadcasters, multinationals and dot coms.

The MultiWave CoreStream is capable of up to 48 channels at 10Gbps and is scalable up to 96 channels at 10 gigabits per second over a single fiber pair.
