Ciena on board with Sydney Trains contract

By

Sydney Trains has selected Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform in a move aimed at mproving public services across its transport system with a faster, low latency and reliable data network.

The deployment will support critical passenger safety measures that ensure trains operate at safe distances.

“It is continually a key focus for us to enhance our network for support of our most important areas – passenger safety and customer experience,” a Sydney Trains spokesperson said.

“Ciena’s 6500 Packet Optical Platform satisfies these elements of our operations, addressing all the requirements we need to upgrade our system in one solution.”

According to Ciena, by investing in both 100G transport and Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching solutions, Sydney Trains fulfils its focus on building a network that enhances support of customer safety and critical train operations.

“For transportation providers, migrating their communication networks by deploying packet-optical technologies is key to continually improving safety measures and optimising passenger services,” said Anthony McLachlan, vice-president and general manager, Asia Pacific, Ciena.

“Ciena offers converged packet optical solutions that serve as the foundation for public transport agencies to meet current needs, while enabling them to invest in the infrastructure to deploy future services.”

McLachlan said Sydney Trains has various sites along its network that have different traffic requirements and the flexibility of Ciena’s 6500 Packet Optical Platform supports these end-to-end services and various system configurations, including deployments over long distances and fibre types such as aerial.

The network upgrade aids the transportation provider to transition from an SDH legacy network, and lays the foundation required to support future high-capacity service requirements.
