Ciena went south of the border yesterday for a contract with TransTelco. TransTelco operates a 2,500 mile fiber network spanning the US-Mexico border, helping to hook up two very different markets. They have announced the implementation of Ciena's Corestream and FlexSelect product lines on a 400km link, the longest individual span on their network, as well as in additional locations. The expansion adds route diversity, redundancy, and of course raw bandwidth.
Infinera, for its part, won business from the Mid-Atlantic Broadband Cooperative (MBC) in support of the implementation of the latter's broadband stimulus grant. The network build covers middle mile services reaching some 121 K-12 schools in southern Virginia. Infinera DTNs have been deployed on MBC's 800 miles of regional fiber. This is not Infinera's first deal with MBC, they are also on the company's longhaul network since 2007.
