VERNet, the operator of the Victorian Education Research Network (VERN) that provides high-speed broadband connectivity to Victorian researchers, scientists and university staff and students, has contracted Ciena for a multi-million dollar network upgrade to 40Gbps transmission technology.
Southern Cross Cable has announced plans to upgrade its network from 10Gbps per wavelength to 40Gbps in 2012 and says it has successfully trialled prototype 100Gbps transmission equipment.
Optical networking vendor Ciena - which beat Nokia Siemens in the auction for Nortel's optical networking and carrier ethernet business - has opened an office in Australia, largely using ex Nortel staff.
