Australian carrier AAPT chose Ciena to upgrade its nationwide network with next-generation carrier Ethernet service delivery capabilities.
 
The upgrade will position AAPT for greater success in anticipation of Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN).
 
AAPT’s new infrastructure will be scalable to terabit-level capacities, providing reliable Ethernet private line and wide area LAN services to retail service providers.
 
This will allow providers to deliver high-bandwidth, low-latency applications such as streaming video, cloud networking, business-to-business commerce, wireless backhaul and wholesale connectivity.
