Gulf Bridge Upgrades with Ciena

Gulf Bridge International (GBI) has selected Ciena's Converged Packet-Optical Networking solutions to upgrade its networks in the Middle East. The deployment of upgrades of 100G and 200G wavelengths on GBI’s submarine segments, is believed to be the first deployment of such technology in the region.

Ciena said its 6500 Packet-Optical platform, equipped with the new WaveLogic 3 Extreme chipset, combined with GeoMesh submarine solutions and E-Suite integrated packet switching, will add more intelligence to the GBI network, as well as improved ease of operations, maintenance and future capacity expansions, including an option to perform future upgrades.

Ed McCormack,  Vice President and General Manager of Submarine Systems at Ciena, comments, “With Ciena’s solutions underpinning GBI’s submarine and terrestrial cables, GBI will have a fully optimized end-to-end network. This massive capacity enhancement also means that GBI is well positioned to accommodate growth and help its customers facilitate the demand for high-bandwidth applications, such as those needed for video and cloud services.”
