April 13th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Three vendor wins of note and some FTTH:

Ciena has picked up a customer for its Waveserver Ai platform over in Europe. The hosting and cloud solutions provider Denmark will be using Ciena’s platform to power its metro DCI network needs. The upgrade enables Denmark to upgrade its connectivity to 8x100G over their existing dark fiber infrastructure, with plenty more in reserve.

ADVA has won some business for its Oscilloquartz solution. TOYO Corporation is using the optical cesium atomic clock for precision timing and position in its test and measurement systems. It’s ADVA’s first such deployment in Japan, and another step toward seeing the technology applied toward 5G-enabled applications and such.

Also on the testing front, VIAVI has also picked up a customer in East Asia, specifically South Korea. The test and certification lab jointly run by Telecommunications Technology Association and the Eletronics and Telecommunications Research Institute has selected VIAVI as O-RAN test and measurement partner.

And on the FTTH front, Ritter Communications is taking on a new market. They have announced a $2.6M expansion project to expand into Newport, Arkansas, a small city along a bend of the White River between Little Rock and Memphis. Construction is starting this month alongside others around the state, but this one being self-funded as opposed to drawing on the Arkansas Rural Connect program.
