21 November 2014 | Kate Hampshire


Ciena is partnering with Avaya to introduce an end-to-end WAN-LAN data networking solution, designed to cost-effectively simplify network operations for enterprises.

The solution combines Avaya Fabric Connect technology with Ciena’s converged packet optical and packet networking platforms.

The carriers claim that the solution will enable operators to increase visibility and control of their networks.

“Today’s enterprises have the challenge of meeting exponential and unpredictable bandwidth growth, while staying within their budgets. Through our collaboration with Ciena, we have developed a solution to help our enterprise customers address this issue by enabling them to seamlessly turn-up or turn-down new services without any impact to end-users,” said Mark Randall, SVP at Avaya.
