Dobson Technologies, an Oklahoma-based provider of business and residential telecom and transport services, as well as cloud data center services, has deployed Cyan's Z-Series packet-optical transport platforms (P-OTPs) across its major markets and has turned-up Cyan's Blue Planet software-defined networking (SDN) system.
The Cyan solution comprises Z77, Z33 and Z22 packet-optical platforms deployed in roughly 40 markets supporting Dobson's telecom and transport services. The solution also includes Blue Planet applications Planet Design for network design functions, Planet Operate for network and service orchestration functions, and Planet View, which provides customers with visibility into and control over their services.
"We are seeing a number of demands, primarily from wireless backhaul, business Ethernet, and data center customers, that have challenged our network resources and operational model. The Cyan Z-Series platform allows us to cost effectively address those demands. But to truly get ahead of the curve and proactively offer compelling and profitable new services requires sophisticated software such as Cyan Blue Planet, which will help us create an entirely new customer experience," sated James Rutherford, Dobson president of network operations.
