Vocus Communications Deploys Cyan Solutions for Network Expansion
By Nathesh TMCnet Contributor
Cyan, a supplier of software-defined metro network solutions, stated that Vocus Communications has installed the Cyan Z-Series packet-optical transport platforms and the Cyan 360 software-defined network (SDN) operations system at its newly built Auckland, NZ network.
Vocus, which provides telecommunications and data center services to ISPs in Australia and New Zealand, stated that Cyan’s solutions will be used for conducting multi-layer planning, management and performance verification over the new network that was built to offer superior services with more favorable economics.
“Cyan’s revolutionary SDN software systems simplify our operations and enable Cyan to provide us with superior technical support to deliver the service quality that our customers require. Further, the Cyan Z-Series platforms give us the ability to scale to 100G and provide a foundation to virtualize our network to support sustained service innovation”, stated McDonald Richards, CTO with Vocus, in a statement.
Cyan exclaimed that its Z-Series platforms modularly support the aggregation and grooming of packet, SONET/SDH, OTN and wavelength services natively in individual, highly-integrated platforms. The platform’s unique nature is that it can at first be constructed as a single-purpose, single-service platform and later can be evolved to support additional functionality as required.
Delivering a full life-cycle, multi-layer, multi-vendor approach to network operations, Cyan 360 delivers advancements that accelerate services innovation, while simultaneously reducing associated capital and operational expense.
Cyan Z-Series platforms with Cyan 360 multi-layer planning, management, and verification software-defined operations systems enable the industry’s first ‘Software-Defined Metro Networks’.
Cyan added that with the scale advantages inherent in its Z-Series packet-optical transport platforms and cost advantages afforded by its Cyan 360 SDN operations system, Vocus is well positioned to continue its rapid expansion. Vocus acknowledged that Cyan’s solutions exceeded its expectations and were priced at substantially lower cost than other options presented to the company.
