Ciena's 100G and Carrier Ethernet Connects Cape Cod

CapeNet, which serves southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, has chosen Ciena and Integration Partners to provide coherent optical transport and Carrier Ethernet solutions for the 350-mile fiber optic OpenCape Network. The network is currently being constructed in southeastern Massachusetts and on Cape Cod using Ciena’s coherent optical processing technology.

The project is funded through a Broadband Technology Opportunity Program (BTOP) infrastructure grant as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act . On Cape Cod, the network will provide high-speed broadband connectivity to approximately 70 community anchor institutions, to include 30 libraries, five colleges, 15 town network hubs, and six research institutions.


CapeNet is using Ciena’s 100G coherent optical transport solution on Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform as the backbone of the network providing the ultra-high bandwidth service. In addition, Ciena’s 5150 and 3916 Carrier Ethernet Solutions (CES) will provide aggregation and delivery of highly reliable broadband services to CapeNet customers.
