Cable & Wireless Panama Selects Ciena

Cable & Wireless Panama has upgraded its nationwide backbone network using Ciena's CN 4200® FlexSelect Advanced Services Platforms. The new network provides efficient transport for a variety of TDM and transparent Ethernet services using advanced Optical Transport Network (OTN) and software-programmable port technologies that maximize the operator's flexibility for offering multiple services to its residential and enterprise customers. Cable & Wireless Panama has initially selected the CN 4200 for a specific application -- a transport network that connects Ethernet-based security cameras mounted in streets and public areas throughout the metropolitan area for the Panama City police department. Financial terms were not disclosed.
