North Carolina's Star Telephone Deploys Ciena's CN 4200

Star Telephone, an independent operating company (IOC) based in southeastern North Carolina, has selected Ciena's CN 4200 FlexSelect Advanced Services Platform for its core network infrastructure upgrade. Star is transitioning its legacy SONET network to a next-generation, service-enabled architecture to better support the delivery of high-bandwidth services including metro Ethernet, wireless, high-speed data and IPTV.

Supporting the ITU's G.709 Optical Transport Network (OTN) standard, Ciena's CN 4200 enables Star to overlay its SONET ring with a Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) system on existing lit fiber to carry two GbE circuits over the ring--with the capability to grow to 16 GbE circuits--to deliver more services faster.
