Utilities like IEC must support high bandwidth, secure connectivity across long distances between data centers and users for their critical data. To address this, IEC will utilize Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform to power a 100G DWDM OTN-switched core network combined with OTN and photonic control planes to significantly improve the capacity and resiliency of the network. The solution leverages Ciena’s WaveLogic Encryption to allow protection of critical in-flight information, without any impact to performance, while the data traverses its network. IEC will also utilize Ciena's Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) software for unified network management and end-to-end service provisioning and planning.
