Cyan Z-Series Packet-Optical Transport and Blue Planet SDN Platforms help backhaul traffic from cable landing stations (CLS) to KVH’s metro data centers
KVH has selected Cyan to upgrade its backhaul network with Cyan’s ROADM and 100Gbps technology.

The Tokyo-based company said with the evolution of sub-sea capacity moving to 100G and beyond, there is strong demand for high-speed Nx100G connectivity from the major submarine landing stations in Japan, Chikura and Toyohashi, to central Tokyo and Osaka.

KVH’s new backhaul service targets global service providers, Internet content providers, and carriers with network capacity requirements to connect their sub-sea capacity to these key metropolitan cities.

Gint Atkinson, VP of network strategy and architecture at KVH said, “Cloud services, content delivery, wholesales services and more are driving big bandwidth growth and new service offerings across the APAC region.”

“KVH is ensuring we can capitalize on this trend by expanding our backhaul network beyond 10 Tbps for 100G services with Cyan. Ultimately, this will help us differentiate ourselves in the market and become the leading solution for dedicated connectivity in Japan’s main metropolitan areas,” the executive said.

Cyan’s Z-Series Packet-Optical Transport Platform and Blue Planet SDN software are enabling KVH’s new high-capacity backhaul network.

The Z-Series delivers KVH integrated support for 100G coherent optical transponding and muxponding, scale up to 96-channels, and multi-degree ROADM for transporting up to 10 Tbps on a single fiber. Blue Planet, together with the Z-Series, delivers multi-layer capacity scalability, multi-vendor software control, service automation and orchestration for KVH’s backhaul service.
