euNetworks has announced an upgrade to its European long haul transport platform, delivering a 100 Gigabit capable network to market. euNetworks has invested in this next generation of network due to customer demand, both for greater capacity and 100G circuits. The Company has selected Ciena Corporation as its equipment supplier and deployed Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform with WaveLogic coherent optical processors. This platform enables a simple upgrade to 100G transmission and beyond without any network infrastructure changes.
Today euNetworks’ long haul network covers 37 cities in 9 countries, with fibre based metropolitan networks operating in 13 of these cities. The new 100G capability is available between the key cities of Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris, and also between Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Dublin, and Manchester.
