Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier, the international wholesale arm of Deutsche Telekom, recently deployed Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai coherent optical solution to strengthen bandwidth services and reach longer distances across Deutsche Telekom’s network.

The agile optical infrastructure is based on Ciena’s 6500 packet-optical platform powered by WaveLogic Ai. It enables Deutsche Telekom to reach longer distances, deliver end-to-end optical services and achieve finer connectivity granularity for carriers and internet content providers throughout Europe.

Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier customers can also look forward to improved service management through Ciena’s Blue Planet Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) domain controller, which automates network and service management and provides visibility into real-time network operations. Ciena will migrate Deutsche Telekom’s network to an optimized, flexible grid network that offers more agility and programmability.

Jason Phipps, SVP, Global Sales and Marketing, Ciena
With our innovative WaveLogic Ai and Blue Planet MCP solutions, we can ensure our customers are better positioned to adapt and accommodate varying connectivity requirements for high-bandwidth applications.
