Cegetel Deploys Ciena's CoreStream Agility

Cegetel, France's leading alternative telecommunications carrier, will deploy Ciena's CoreStream Agility platform for increased capacity and flexibility in its core network and to support the adoption of high-capacity services at the network edge. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Ciena's CoreStream Agility WDM system is capable of routing 2.5 and 10 Gbps wavelengths, with migration to 40G wavelengths, for long-haul and ultra long-haul (ULH) network routes. CoreStream Agility also delivers an all-optical bypass to eliminate optical-electrical-optical (OEO) signal conversions and transceivers. Additionally, the system automates end-to-end service provisioning and management, inventory and resource tracking, and dynamic power management.

  • Ciena announced general availability of its CoreStream Agility platform in March 2004. At the time, Ciena announced that the platform had been selected by MCI and the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for their network builds.
