Ciena to Build 100G European Link
Ciena bags a deal from Cable & Wireless Worldwide (CWW) to build Europe’s longest 100G network link. This link will support intercontinental traffic between Monaco and London. European 100G coherent network will be built on Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform along with WaveLogic coherent optical processors. This 100G network will support future growth demand for capacity over Cable & Wireless Worldwide’s European network. A key driver for increased capacity requirements will be the Europe India Gateway (EIG), a submarine link between Western Europe and Mumbai, India, which is expected to carry backbone traffic to London, United Kingdom.
