Telenet, a Liberty Global company and the largest provider of cable broadband services in Belgium, is deploying Ciena 6500 Reconfigurable Line System (RLS) and WaveLogic 5 Nano (WL5n) 400G QSFP-DD coherent pluggable transceivers to support its network expansion across Belgium.
The deployment also includes Ciena’s Waveserver 5 interconnect platform and its Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) domain controller, for controlling and automating the network throughout its entire operational lifecycle. Telenet is also using Ciena’s PinPoint app to ensure network availability by quickly isolating and troubleshooting fiber faults.
Virginie Hollebecque, Vice President, EMEA at Ciena commented: “We greatly appreciate and value Telenet’s choice and commitment to our products and service. We understand Telenet’s requirements and with our mix of leading optical, network management and software innovations, Telenet can support the growing demand for AI services, streaming, content, gaming, and other data applications, while also making the network simpler and more efficient.
