The telecoms provider Pacnet has upgraded its trans-Pacific link between the United States West Coast and Japan as it positions itself to meet the demands of a heightened market for bandwidth-intensive applications and data center services.
A press statement by Ciena Corp. said the upgrade means Pacnet's trans-Pacific link now has 100 gigabits per second bandwidth capacity configured by enterprise and carrier customers for a high performance and cloud-ready network.
Deployment of Ciena technology into Pacnet's trans-Pacific link has made the upgrade possible, according to the statement.
Such technology consists of the following deployments: Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical platform, OneControl Unified Management System and OP architecture for programmable network infrastructures.
The upgrade means Pacnet now offers a suite of high capacity and Ethernet services while reducing cost per bit.
Pacnet has headquarters in Hong Kong and Singapore.
