Bouygues Telecom chooses Ciena for next generation network infrastructure

Bouygues Telecom has selected Ciena´s (NYSE: CIEN) 6500 Packet-Optical Platform to help improve the efficiency, scalability and reliability of its current network backhauling and aggregation infrastructure and support the creation of its new “SuperCore” network, the company said.

This network deployment also supports Bouygues Telecom´s mission to offer its customers a superior quality of service through its 4G network — and soon 5G — and also enable the company to support its strong ambitions for its fixed network and, more particularly, with fiber to the home (FTTH).

Ciena is a network strategy and technology company that translates best-in-class technology into value through a high-touch, consultative business mode.
