Telstra’s director of transport and routing, engineering David Robertson said that the continuing improvement of Telstra’s optical technology will increase bandwidth capacity and lower latency. “We want to have one of the world’s best optical network’s and this agreement will provide us with the ability to dynamically move and shape transport capacity with flexibility and scalability to streamline our network operations,” Mr Robertson said.
The latest agreement will see Ericsson also provide Telstra with Ciena’s converged packet optical platforms, with the telco saying that it’s leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that its network can handle burgeoning traffic demands without hurting customer experience.
