Ethernet Services Video: Comcast Uses Ciena Hardware for Its Metro Ethernet Solution
Comcast and Ciena work together to create a metro Ethernet service that’s fast, agile, and responsive.
Metro Ethernet services are growing rapidly. It is expected that customers are going to spend in the neighborhood of 40 billion dollars this year alone and we expect that number to grow rapidly in the years to come. The market has selected Ethernet as the technology of choice for connecting locations, and so now it’s a matter of organizations choosing the right partner to build their network.
Ciena provides premises based equipment solutions that help Comcast provide cost effective, highly available services. With more than 138,000 fiber route miles, Comcast operates in 39 states and 20 of the top metropolitan areas in the United States. With this type of footprint, Comcast is the true last-mile alternative to the phone company.
