NASA Kennedy Space Center Implements Ciena's OTN

Ciena, in partnership with Abacus Technology Corporation, has been selected to upgrade the expansive campus IT network at NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC). The upgrade will use Optical Transport Network (OTN) technology from Ciena to consolidate the Center’s Ethernet, video and legacy ATM and TDM traffic. The new network is using Ciena’s 4200 Advanced Services Platform.

Abacus Technology, which is contracted to provide support for all information management and communications services related to launch operations at KSC, is leading the design and installation of the new campus network, with completion of the campus upgrade expected in March.
