Adelphia Deploys Ciena for Optical Ethernet

Adelphia, the fifth largest MSO in the U.S., has deployed Ciena optical Ethernet platforms in multiple cable systems across the country to deliver video on demand (VOD), high-speed data and commercial service. The installations include a variety of equipment from Ciena, including its new CN 4350 Ethernet Services Provisioning Switch; the CN 2100 Passive Optical Multiplexer; and the CN 2200 Managed Optical Ethernet Multiplexer. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Adelphia first deployed Ciena equipment in its Los Angeles network in November 2003 with the initial roll-out of VOD in that market.
