C&W Networks has deployed Coriant’s mTera Universal Transport Platform in its Pan-Caribbean network.
The platform will allow C&W Networks to optimise its network backbone for current and future high-speed service demands and simplify multiservice bandwidth management.
“Adding new 100Gbit/s port services, reducing network complexity and streamlining service delivery are key drivers behind our network-wide optimisation initiative,” said Paul Scott, President, C&W Networks.
The C&W Networks subsea network optimisation project using the Coriant mTera solution will be implemented in multiple phases, with initial deployment at core sites in Colombia, Curaçao, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama, Puerto Rico, Trinidad, and the United States. First phase deployment includes support for protected 100Gbit/s services, Ethernet aggregation and legacy SDH migration applications.
To simplify capacity provisioning and efficiently manage service bandwidth, C&W Networks is using the Coriant Transcend Chorus Transport Network Management System (TNMS), a single robust management platform that helps service providers control OpEx and CapEx with sophisticated centralised end-to-end network control, automated provisioning features, multiple service protection schemes and advanced planning capabilities.
“Our industry-leading mTera solution offers operators like C&W Networks a pragmatic approach to service migration by providing completely protocol-agnostic transport and switching capabilities in a single platform,” said Uwe Fischer, Executive Vice President, R&D and PLM, and CTO, Coriant. “The result is a highly efficient and scalable bandwidth management infrastructure with the ability to dynamically adapt to rapidly changing traffic demands.”
