BT Deploys Ciena's across 100+ UK Sites

BT, which has completed around 20 percent of its core 21CN national network infrastructure in the UK, has installed more than 500 Ciena network elements to date to connect network nodes in every major city in England, Scotland and Wales. The deployment includes the CN 4200 FlexSelect Advanced Services Platform, CoreDirector Multiservice Switch, CoreStream Agility Optical Transmission System and ON-Center Network and Service Management Suite.

In addition to the 21CN roll-out in the UK, Ciena's CN 4200 platform is being deployed to support BT's 21CN Global platform. Ciena said projects are currently underway across multiple markets around the world to support BT's next-generation network architecture.
