XO Deploys Ciena in 100G Metro and Regional Network Upgrade


XO Communications will deploy Ciena’s Packet-Optical Transport technology to provide optical transport and business Ethernet services via its metro and regional networks, nationwide. Financial terms were not disclosed.

XO is deploying Ciena’s 6500 Packet Optical Platform with WaveLogic coherent technology. The platform offers OTN switching capabilities supporting OTN, SONET, Ethernet and Fibre Channel, as well as managed wavelength services — at speeds of 1G to 10G, 40G and 100G. XO will use multiple chassis sizes depending on the metro or regional requirements.

XO said its newly-enhanced network will support speeds of 100G, delivering Ethernet, storage and managed services applications with low latency.  XO will also work with Ciena to offer 100G managed wavelength services to its large enterprise and wholesale service provider customers.
