Reliance Globalcom to upgrade its European Network


New Delhi: Reliance Globalcom, a leading global provider of international wholesale telecom services with a presence in high growth emerging and developed markets covering US, Europe, Middle East and Asia, including China and India, today announced that it is upgrading its European Network with coherent 100G technology. Reliance Globalcom will be using Ciena’s 6500 Packet Optical Platform and WaveLogic coherent optical processors to deploy the 100G network.

Part of the European network connecting Marseilles, London, Paris and Frankfurt is planned to be upgraded with 100G wavelength technology by end of 2012. The upgraded network will enable Reliance Globalcom to support the surge in high-bandwidth intensive applications that encompass cloud computing, video conferencing, business continuity/disaster recovery, data centre connectivity, and storage area networking, in addition to ever increasing Internet traffic. It will also enable Reliance Globalcom to offer more flexibility and improved performance to its customers.
The new 100G technology enables Reliance Globalcom to send up to 2.5 times more data over its existing fibre network with 40G technology, reduces the overall cost per Terabit on its network, and enables tighter integration with its recently deployed Terabit Internet routers at higher capacities while providing improved granularity.
Punit Garg, President & CEO, Reliance Globalcom said, “The 100G deployment will enable significant bandwidth scalability, flexibility, and improved performance, while reducing the overall costs for our customers. Last year Reliance Globalcom had installed Ciena’s 6500 platform with 40G technology on its European terrestrial backhaul network. Now 100G technology will be added to the existing network so that 40G and 100G channels run along the same fibre allowing us to support the delivery of next-generation services to our customers.” 
Reliance Communications founded by the late Dhirubhai H Ambani is the flagship company of the Reliance Group. Reliance Communications with a customer base of over 162 million ranks among the top 4 Telecom companies in the world by number of customers in a single country. Reliance Communications has established a pan-India, next generation, integrated (wireless and wireline), convergent (voice, data and video) digital network covering over 24,000 towns and 600,000 villages.
