Next-gen network with high-availability allows for global expansion

  • Challenges

    Ciena needed new infrastructure technology to support expanding global operations. Inconsistent service offerings across the regions created management inefficiencies as they also sought to adopt a video-first culture, requiring increased bandwidth.

  • Results

    Ciena gained a simplified network that offered improved WAN performance and centralized network management. Network function virtualization enabled them to consolidate multiple functionalities across sites in several countries on the remote side.

  • Solution

    AT&T replaced legacy single-function CPE with a high-availability design consisting of AT&T Software-Defined Wide-Area Networking (SD-WAN), MPLS, and AT&T Dedicated Internet service. The solution connects 32 sites in 17 countries.
