TelePacific Upgrades Network with Ciena

To support its recent expansion as a nationwide managed services provider, TelePacific Communications has deployed Ciena’s programmable 8700 Packetwave Platform, which provides a scalable and cost-effective solution to support 100GbE services and beyond.

This network upgrade helps enable TelePacific to provide unified communications, managed IT, connectivity, cloud and continuity services to customers anywhere in the country.

TelePacific has evolved to a national managed services provider serving small businesses to multi-location enterprises with hundreds of sites. Today, it delivers five-nines performance guaranteed solutions over an access-agnostic Ethernet ecosystem that uses advanced SD-WAN technology able to reach any location that has a broadband connection.

TelePacific can now offer a variety of high-speed packet services nationwide with Ciena’s Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified 8700 platform. Another key benefit of the 8700 is that it enables TelePacific to provide reliable high-bandwidth connectivity and support a variety of wavelengths, up to 100G, that can be easily turned up as demand dictates.

TelePacific is also utilizing Ciena’s 8700 as part of standards testing performed at the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab (IOL). This work supports the advancement of industry standards with the Metro Ethernet Forum by facilitating the creation of interoperable services between operators across the industry.

“At TelePacific, our goal is to provide customers with one of the most reliable MEF-compliant networks in the country and to ensure they get the level of service they need,” said David Zahn, senior vice president of marketing at TelePacific.
