Japan-U.S. Cable Picks Ciena for Trans-Pacific 100G Submarine Network

By admin, June 26, 2012 12:31 pm

Japan-U.S. Cable Network has announced its plan to upgrade the trans-Pacific submarine network, which is close to 23,000 kilometers from the U.S. to Japan. The project has been aided by Ciena with its market-leading coherent 100 Gigabits per second (100G) technology.

The 23,000 kilometers network will be supported by Ciena’s 6500 Packet Optical platform with WaveLogic 3 coherent optical processors. This will replace existing 10G optical equipment at two landing stations in California, one in Hawaii, and three in Japan.

According to Ciena officials, their WaveLogic coherent technology offers revolutionary 40G/100G upgrades to existing submarine networks with only the addition of new terminal equipment, significantly extending the life of existing cable plants and further lengthening its lifespan. Other than scaling bandwidth and lowering costs, WaveLogic-powered networks can be programmed to quickly respond and adapt to changing requirements for capacity, reach, and latency.

Anthony McLachlan, VP and GM, Asia Pacific, Ciena said, “As bandwidth consumption accelerates worldwide, submarine networks have emerged as a potential bottleneck in global networks due to the cost, challenge, and financial risks of deploying new submarine cables. Ciena’s WaveLogic 3 coherent technology has completely changed the economics of bandwidth and time-to-market for submarine network operators, enabling dramatic increases in capacity over existing cable systems.”

The Japan-U.S. Cable is built with more than 26 consortium members such as: Verizon Business?(News – Alert), AT&T, BT, Sprint, CenturyLink, KDDI, NTT, Cable & Wireless Worldwide, Tata Communications, SingTel, Softbank Telecom, France Telecom, Level(3), AboveNet, KT, Starhub, PCCW?(News credit rating also signifies that influence acquired by intrigue connected with certain social” /> – Alert), and Telstra.

This new network will be the first direct coast-to-coast 100G trans-Pacific submarine network, which allows Japan-U.S. Cable customers to take advantage of the benefits of increased bandwidth and support rapidly increasing capacity demands.

NTT Communications (News – Alert) Corporation (NTT Com), a provider of global networks, management solutions and IT services to customers worldwide, announced its global telecommunications carrier partners renewed their commitment to enhancing their delivery and operation of NTT Com’s Arcstar global network services.

The commitment was announced at the recently held Arcstar Carrier Forum 2011 in Kobe, Japan, an international conference aimed at strengthening the global delivery and operation of Arcstar-brand managed network services.

As part of the forum, participants discussed the implementation of customer-oriented operations for comprehensively enhanced service quality and agreed to implement best practices to improve service availability, lower average outage rates, speed up failure recovery, provide customers with real-time information and detailed disclosure of failures and related follow-up, and strictly adhere to service-delivery deadlines.

Arcstar services include IP-VPN, e-VLAN, leased line and Arcstar Universal One, a cloud-optimized network service that securely links closed enterprise networks with global cloud services. NTT Com enables customers to optimize networks on a comprehensive basis through Arcstar services without having to contact different vendors for each aspect of IT infrastructure.

The forum gives an opportunity to learn service-quality improvements and strengthen customer satisfaction by setting goals for partner telecoms that provide delivery of Arcstar services in countries worldwide. Partner telecoms relay NTT Com’s global networks to their home markets and in some cases to other national markets. NTT Com also provides Arcstar services directly in many markets, the company said.

“DORMA relies on IT to operate its global business, including high-quality infrastructure to support our growth economically and efficiently,” said Dr. Siegfried Lauer, director of Group IT, DORMA, an Arcstar customer based in Germany, in a statement.

“NTT Communications, as a strategic partner of DORMA, provides us with a high-quality network. The Arcstar Carrier Forum is an excellent example of their commitment to continuously improving their services and value partnerships,” Lauer added.

In addition to the regular partners, this year’s Forum included four first-time participating carriers, aiming to further strengthen NTT Com’s worldwide ICT platform. NTT Com also presented on the company’s disaster preparedness at the Forum.

In a major development recently, NTT Communications Corporation announced the commercial viability of digital coherent transmission, a next-generation optical transmission technology. online casino . This announcement follows the successful trial of 100 gigabit per second (Gbps) optical transmission on its PC-1 transpacific submarine cable system announced in October.
