Colt and Ciena work together to raise industry standards, to service the high bandwidth demands of the future, and facilitate pioneering levels of network-to-network inter-operability.
Formally established in 2016, the partnership has seen the continuing deployment of Ciena’s optical technology across Colt’s IQ Network. First applied throughout Europe and Asia, Ciena’s technology, combined with Colt’s network capability, paves the way for a high capacity, programmable network, servicing key markets. Colt’s recent network upgrade in North America also extends this potential into thirteen major telecoms and cloud hub cities in the US and Canada.
Working in conjunction with Ciena, we're increasing our network capacity four-fold to 400Gpbs, to empower you to meet the data requirements of next-generation applications and services.
Colt & Ciena have won an MEF Proof of Concept Award along with technology partners AT&T, Orange, Amdocs & Fujitsu. This partnership breaks new ground in the telecoms space – underlining the feasibility of interoperability between network operators unwilling to be constrained by their own physical footprint.
Colt and Ciena’s mutual commitment to the provision of customer controlled high bandwidth solutions now and into the future, alongside their forward thinking approach to interoperability, marks the partnership out within the industry.
