Colt Expands Asia Pacific Network with Ciena
05 Oct 2017
Business Wire

Colt Technology Services continues to invest in its core assets in the Asia Pacific region with the deployment of Ciena’s (NYSE: CIEN) 6500 Converged Packet Optical Platform, which is capable of delivering reliable 100Gbps and 200Gbps services to meet increasing demands for bandwidth. The Asia-Pacific-wide deployment on the Colt IQ Network began in September 2017 and will support Colt’s growth across key Asia Pacific markets, including Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, as well as help strengthen intercontinental connections into Europe.

Key facts:

  • Colt provides high-bandwidth network and communications services for enterprises, capital markets and wholesale businesses across Europe, Asia and North America. It delivers a range of data connectivity products, voice solutions and secure network services to over 800 data centres and more than 25,000 on-net buildings.
  • In Asia, Colt specializes in low latency networks and provides connectivity to all major Asia exchanges. Colt recently marked the expansion of its metro area network in Singapore as well as the start of construction of the company’s newest metro area network in Hong Kong. Once completed, Colt’s Singapore metro area network expansion is expected to offer carrier-grade connectivity of up to 100Gbps with coverage to more than 90 percent of Singapore’s enterprises. Similarly, Colt’s Hong Kong metro area network brings high-bandwidth capabilities to Hong-Kong based enterprises. SMEs and MNCs in a variety of industries will be able to connect to both domestic and global markets quickly and securely through a single provider.
  • Ciena’s 6500, powered by WaveLogic Ai, will support the Colt IQ Network expansion across the Asia-Pacific region, allowing Colt to more efficiently deliver ultra-high bandwidth services and manage unpredictable traffic growth. Colt will also leverage Ciena’s Unified Management solution, which provides greater network control across domains and network layers, reducing troubleshooting and ensuring efficient use of resources.

Executive comments:

  • “This investment further reinforces Colt’s commitment to the Asia Pacific region. Many companies are looking to transform their digital infrastructure and Colt’s high-bandwidth services are designed to meet the ever-growing demand from enterprises for fast, secure and reliable direct connectivity to markets around the world. Our expansions in Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan enable the region’s businesses to power their competitiveness and growth while future-proofing their connectivity needs.”
    -     Kenji Hioki, Asia CCO and Regional Executive, Colt
  • “Asia Pacific businesses are under increasing pressure to evolve their networks to support web-scale applications and cloud-based services. Leading operators like Colt are taking steps to help address this need by deploying new innovations that allow them to not only scale their networks, but add more programmability so that they can automatically adjust to meet changing user demands.”
    -     Gary B. Smith, president and CEO, Ciena
