Colt Technology Services announced the availability of its new 400GE Wave and Private Wave services, making it the first telco to offer customers access to the technology as a service across both Europe and the Asia Pacific regions.

Based on Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Extreme (WL5e) coherent optical technology, the 400GE service builds upon Colt’s high bandwidth optical portfolio delivered on the IQ Network, which includes Wave, Spectrum, and Private Wave, to deliver the next generation of services with an unparalleled end-user experience over a fully programmable network.

Colt will use Ciena’s Waveserver 5 platform, powered by WL5e 800G technology, to enable efficient 400GE between locations on the IQ Network to meet the highest levels of customer bandwidth demands.

Colt has continued to drive innovation in optical networking via an extensive program of investment, testing and deployment of leading-edge technologies. The Colt IQ Network comprises more than 29,000 net buildings and over 900 data centres, making it a truly global network that powers today’s rapid and ongoing digital transformations.

Vivek Gaur, Colt’s VP Network Engineering, said: “As a company, we’re known for our innovation, and that’s really highlighted with this announcement, with us being the first to deliver 400GE commercially across both Europe and the Asia Pacific. Colt continues to make systematic and strategic investments to drive innovation in the IQ Network, introducing next-generation, scalable and sustainable optical network technology in partnership with Ciena. We’re staying one step ahead in the market and helping our customers transform the way they do business through high bandwidth connectivity.”

IBS Intelligence recently reported that Colt Technology Services, a leading provider of agile, high-bandwidth connectivity solutions, has deployed software from Blue Planet, a division of Ciena. Colt’s IQ Network now uses Blue Planet fault management software to transform Colt’s Network Assurance experience to its customers.
