Ciena announced recently the completion of IMEWE upgrade, deploying Ciena’s coherent optical solutions and automation software to address network capacity requirements in the region. IMEWE cable system is using Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai technology to deploy 200G per wave on the majority of the IMEWE digital line section. Leveraging leading edge technologies, Ciena’s solutions provide IMEWE with a network capable of delivering immediate capacity upgrades while providing a foundation for continued growth. 

Operators are looking to maximize existing submarine cable infrastructure to deliver reliable, secure and scalable capacity that can meet rising bandwidth demands. By upgrading its submarine network with Ciena, IMEWE cable system is able to meet these requirements with a low-risk, cost-effective network powered by unmatched coherent technology performance and flexibility.  

In this upgrade, IMEWE cable system is deploying Ciena’s GeoMesh solution based on the 6500 packet-optical platform with Ciena’s Manage, Control and Plan domain controller software to upgrade its submarine network with increased bandwidth capacity and improved network management.  IMEWE cable system is using Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai technology to deploy 200G per wave on the majority of the IMEWE digital line section. WaveLogic Ai improves on the last generation of technology and is capable of delivering a 400G-optimized engine that drives twice the capacity per channel, three times the distance at the equivalent capacity, and four times the service density to support innovative client services at less than half the power.
