    Bouygues Telecom deploys Ciena’s CN 4200


    Ciena, the network specialist, today announced that Bouygues Telecom, part of the Bouygues group, has deployed the CN 4200 FlexSelect Advanced Services Platform across France to expand the operator’s broadband DSL aggregation and transport network as well as increase capacity to support rising volumes of mobile traffic.

    Bouygues Telecom is said to be one of the top three mobile operators in France and, in addition to its 3G mobile network, which covers more than 80 percent of the French population with a high-speed mobile broadband service, it also offers fixed line and DSL services throughout the country.

    CN 4200, part of Ciena’s Packet-Optical Transport portfolio that addresses any transport network requirement and offers a variety of service and interface options, allows Bouygues Telecom to cost-effectively support new voice, video and data services for both its business and consumer customers. In addition, CN 4200’s dynamic optical programmability – driven by its FlexiPort technology – supports the operator’s future service and capacity needs by providing the ability to scale and reconfigure the transport network on demand in direct response to the evolving needs of its customers.

    Francois Locoh-Donou, VP and general manager of Ciena in the EMEA region, said: “The introduction of new services and growing subscriber numbers are putting increasing pressure on service providers to operate more efficiently and lower costs without compromising security and performance. By selecting CN 4200, Bouygues Telecom has secured improved efficiency, infrastructure scalability and improved reliability of its fixed and mobile networks for the delivery of data-rich end-user applications, ensuring its ability to continue innovating and adapting to its customers’ evolving requirements.”
