RETN, an international network service provider, recently deployed Ciena’s solutions to accommodate recent rapid increases in network traffic. Ciena’s 800G technology supports important paths in the RETN Eurasian network, connecting key points in Central Europe between Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Hamburg, where high availability of services and low latency are essential for applications such as content delivery, OTT services and video streaming.

RETN deployed Ciena’s Waveserver 5 – powered by WaveLogic 5 Extreme – to deliver 100GbE and 400GbE interconnectivity to address growing requirements for bandwidth-hungry services and applications, while optimising costs.

Leveraging its existing architecture and Ciena’s 800G solution, RETN has achieved the highest standards of network performance and service quality, offering efficient network utilisation (up to 800 Gbps per lambda), lower latencies, enhanced security and reliability of services.

In addition, Ciena’s Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) domain controller is helping RETN improve network monitoring and management by using automation features and operational diagnostics to proactively identify and prevent potential connectivity challenges. This adds additional flexibility to support RETN’s short delivery time, quick upgrades and on-going service standards.

“RETN has established itself as a leader in delivering international data transmission services. With WaveLogic 5, RETN can address network scale, cost and efficiency challenges, while forging a path to fuel our increasingly digital-driven lives,” said Jamie Jefferies, Vice President and General Manager of EMEA, Ciena.
