Colt Enriches Customer Digital Experiences with Blue Planet

Colt Technology Services, a provider of agile, high-bandwidth connectivity solutions, has deployed software from Blue Planet, a division of Ciena. Colt’s IQ Network now uses Blue Planet fault management software, which will transform the Network Assurance experience that Colt provides to its customers.

By deploying Blue Planet software, Colt’s IQ Network can anticipate – and even act upon – potential network issues before they occur, thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities integrated within Blue Planet Unified Assurance and Analytics (UAA). Blue Planet Route Optimization and Analysis (ROA) provides visibility and control of Colt’s multi-layer network to correct service delivery issues, accelerating time to market for new services.

Since the launch of its IQ Network in 2016, Colt has continued to drive innovation in next generation optical networking through extensive investment programs and working closely with its partners. Today, the 100Gbps-optimized, high-bandwidth and low-latency IQ Network connects over 900 data centers and more than 29,000 on net buildings globally.
