Ciena Builds 100G Network for NYSE Euronext

NYSE Euronext has selected Ciena to supply its 100Gbps technology for its state-of-the-art data centers in the greater New York and London metropolitan areas. These facilities are expected to be operational in 2010 and are designed to serve as the company's operational hubs for more than one billion daily transactions comprising petabytes of information. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Specifically, NYSE Euronext's communications backbone -- the Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI) network -- will use Ciena's CN 4200 RS FlexSelect Advanced Services platform, which is capable of delivering a true 100G data stream over a single wavelength.
