KVH is deploying Cyan's optical transmission platform to deliver point-to-point 100 Gigabit Ethernet service in Japan. The service is expected to launch between many of Japan's major metropolitan markets.
KVH, which serves over 500 financial services customers in Japan, completed field trials of the new service earlier this year using the Cyan Z-Series packet-optical transport platform (P-OTP), XC-2800 2.8 Tbps multi-layer switch fabric, and DTM-100G coherent transponder module.
Yoshiyuki Hamada, vice president, Systems & Technology of KVH, commented, "As KVH has been experiencing overwhelming customer demand for higher capacity network services, we are excited to be launching KVH 100 Gigabit Ethernet Service, and are proud to be offering this service as the first of its kind in Japan. We're looking forward to working with Cyan to deploy highly reliable, high performance solutions to our customers as a neutral network services provider."
