SingAREN Builds Higher Speed, More Resilient Network with Ciena
26 Oct 2020 – SingAREN has deployed Ciena’s 6500 packet-optical platform to deliver reliable high-speed connectivity for data-intensive science and advanced computer network applications. The network upgrade advances SingAREN’s mission to collaborate across Asia and the globe in research areas such as cancer genomics and precision medicine to improve how diseases are treated as well as atmospheric modeling to combat climate change.
Together with Terrabit Networks, which designed and implemented the network, Ciena has transformed SingAREN’s architecture to a mesh network that can more easily recover from fiber failures and provide uninterrupted services for research and education initiatives. Additionally, SingAREN benefits from a smaller footprint, reduced cost-per-bit and lower power consumption.
“Singapore is a regional hub that pushes the frontier of data-driven science and technology. It is mission critical that our network provides sufficient bandwidth and seamless connectivity to the research and education community. Ciena’s industry-leading optical technology equips SingAREN with a network that can withstand connectivity demands as they emerge.” – Lawrence Wong, President, SingAREN
