Lightstorm Telecom Ventures taps Ciena for high-capacity Indian network

Lightstorm Telecom Ventures (LTV) has deployed Ciena’s coherent optics, network management and advanced automation software to serve OTT, data centre and cloud providers across India.

The deployment will enable LTV, a carrier-neutral infrastructure provider, to transform its metro and long-distance network to support the delivery of low latency and high-capacity digital services.

LTV’s network covers more than 10,000 kilometres and 60 data centres in five cities, including Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad, as well as strategic subsea cable landing stations providing high-capacity connectivity to Mumbai and Chennai.

Ciena’s portfolio of hardware, software and services allows LTV to provide an intelligent and reliable network that can adapt and respond quickly to rapidly changing user requirements. Deploying 600-800 Gbps per wavelength delivers increased capacity to support high-bandwidth content, and a software-driven flexible photonic architecture accelerates service velocity.

“Bringing new digital services to India requires an intelligently automated network that can dynamically adapt and scale,” said Ryan Perera, vice president and country head, Ciena India.
