GeoMesh Extreme solutions help submarine cable operators cost-effectively respond to evolving market demands

Attendees at Submarine Networks World, taking place September 25-27 at the Suntec Convention & Exhibition Center in Singapore, will have an opportunity to see first-hand how Ciena's (NYSE: CIEN) GeoMesh Extreme solutions can provide unprecedented capacity, reliably, and simplicity, redefining the economics of owning and operating submarine networks.

Attendees will also be able to hear Ciena insights into the latest trends, challenges and opportunities affecting submarine cable operators.

Demonstrations (Booths 9 and 10):

  • Analytics solutions that allow submarine network operators to gather massive      amounts of data from a network and make smarter, data-driven decisions      using machine learning and big data analytics. Analytics gives operators the ability to      visualize and anticipate potential network and service disruptions before      they take place, create more profitable services, and better predict      capacity requirements.
  • Bandwidth-on-Demand capabilities allow submarine network operators to offer bandwidth at set levels to address changing customer needs. For example, enterprise customers can schedule increased bandwidth in anticipation of a major event or during peak demand, and then decommission the connection once the event is over.

Speaking Sessions:

  • September 26 at 9:35 SGT: Steve Alexander, Chief Technology Officer, keynote session: “The Shannon Limit, or Opportunity?” Attendees will hear how the Shannon limit is defined, its importance, and how to address the concept with technology solutions.
  • September 26 at 16:55 SGT: Bob Hadaway, Vice President of Merchant Modems, will speak on the “Evaluating the Business of an Open Network” panel.
  • September 27 at 9:20 SGT: Ian Clarke, Vice President of Global Submarine Solutions, will speak on the “New Network Topologies for a Next Generation Internet” panel.

Deep Dive Workshop:

  • September 25 from 13:00 to 17:00 SGT: Ciena will host a pre-conference workshop covering the latest topics and issues facing the submarine cable industry, including: updates on hardware and software solutions to address submarine bandwidth demands, transformation of submarine and terrestrial networks through SDN, and the benefits of the openness movement.
