HANOVER, Md. -- Ciena® Corporation (NASDAQ: CIEN), the network specialist, today announced that its 100G solution, architected with WaveLogic Coherent Optical Processors, has been deployed by Telefonica Vivo. This is the first active 100G network in Brazil, which connects native 100GbE channels to the DWDM system to provide unprecedented speeds for outbound international traffic. The network includes 100G routes that connect the cities of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Praia Grande, Brazil. Ciena’s industry-leading 100G coherent solution will add significant bandwidth, scalability and reliability to Telefonica Vivo’s network infrastructure.“Demand for capacity will continue to grow because of the increasing number of connections to public and private networks, as well as the business and consumer demand for applications such as video and remote storage. Addressing this challenge requires a network that is future-proof and that combines intelligence, scalability and high capacity - and that is where Ciena’s intelligent infrastructure comes into play. We are thrilled to support Telefonica Vivo in building the country’s first 100G network, which will allow Brazilians to enjoy advanced, high-speed applications and services,” said Fabio Medina, vice president and general manager, Central and Latin America, Ciena.Ciena Corp.
