Published on: 19th Jun 2017
Bouygues Telecom has selected Ciena's (NYSE CIEN) 6500 Packet Optical Platform to help improve the efficiency, scalability and reliability of its current network backhauling and aggregation infrastructure and support the creation of its new "SuperCore" network. This deployment will increase capacity to up to 400G to support surging capacity demands and new high bandwidth services as well as allow Bouygues Telecom to further grow its mobile and ISP offerings, and lay the foundations for a future 5G rollout.
This network deployment also supports Bouygues Telecom's mission to offer its customers a superior quality of service through its 4G network - and soon 5G - and also enable the company to support its strong ambitions for its fixed network and, more particularly, with fiber to the home (FTTH).
