Through this deployment, Vianet can achieve the levels of capacity, flexibility, resiliency, and openness required to create a network that can quickly adapt to changing user demands.
Vianet has more than 70,000 customers and has been the pioneer in introducing FTTH technology in the ISP arena in Nepal. Voted the most respected ISP in Nepal for four years in a row, Vianet has grown by three times in as many years and is rapidly expanding to new locations in Nepal. To improve intracity connectivity in Kathmandu and provide international connectivity between Nepal and other countries, Vianet is deploying Ciena’s industry-leading 6500 platform. The 6500 will also help to streamline operations and optimize footprint, power and capacity. Additionally, Ciena’s network management software will enable a greater level of control over Vianet’s network, providing end-to-end visibility of its services across all transport, switching and packet elements. This will also make it easier for Vianet to rapidly deploy new services and optimize the use of current network and bandwidth assets.
Vianet is also deploying Ciena’s 5160 Service Aggregation Switch to efficiently deliver and aggregate large quantities of packet data while meeting stringent service level agreements.
