ORLANDO, Fla. -- Cyan (™ today announced it will showcase its powerful packet optical transport solutions for massively scaling IPTV and VOD networks to support expanding HDTV services at TelcoTV ( in Orlando, FL (November 10-11, Orange County Convention Center, booth #944).

Satisfying IPTV's insatiable appetite for ultra-high quality bandwidth, Cyan's Z-Series™ of multi-layer transport platforms ( and CyMS™ multi-layer management system ( gives service providers new options to scale network capacity from the access edge to remote video head-ends. Cyan's Z-Series supports the latest industry standards and technologies, enabling easy capacity expansion to 10 Gigabit Ethernet and beyond using industry leading Connection Oriented Ethernet and G.709 Optical Transport Network (OTN) technology for more robust video transport. As capacity requirements increase and exceed available fibers, simple modular component additions enable scale to hundreds of Gigabits per fiber for massive scale with unprecedented economies.

"IPTV is one of the most demanding applications in networks today," stated Frank Wiener, vice president of marketing and business development at Cyan, and author of "The Book on Video" which has provided an educational introduction of IPTV to countless service providers since 2004. "IPTV and VOD content plus rapidly scaling internet, wireless backhaul and carrier Ethernet services are driving massive traffic increases globally. Many 10 Gigabit Ethernet systems offer packet transport of these services - but few provide the combined service robustness, scalability, manageability and life cycle economies of Cyan's Z-Series multi-layer transport platforms with CyMS multi-layer management. These attributes and more are why Cyan's Z-Series are the platform of choice for over 2 dozen service providers, earning industry recognitions such as Light Reading's "Top Picks" ( award for Carrier Transport.

"We selected the Cyan Z-Series for upgrading our IPTV and broadband transport infrastructure, following the evaluation recommendation of our consulting engineering firm," added Andy Randol, general manager of Panora Telco ( "Our evaluation found the Cyan Z-Series gave us more capabilities and scalability, with lower costs which is always a winning combination."
