Vodafone New Zealand creates network with Ciena

Vodafone New Zealand is distinguishing itself from other network operators in the region by enabling support for, 5G, IoT, UHD video, and other bandwidth-heavy applications that its users are gravitating towards in their personal and professional lives, the company said.

Utilising technologies from Ciena, Vodafone New Zealand is unveiling an adaptable and agile network that can respond in real time to its customers´ changing demands. Through a digital user-interface (UI), business customers will easily be able to request additional network capacity from Vodafone in a faster, automated way.

With an adaptive network, Vodafone can better support a growing enterprise customer base that requires high-capacity connectivity as business applications and workloads increasingly move to public cloud services (SaaS/IaaS) and cloud data centres both locally and internationally.
