The Philippines’ telecoms leader PLDT has partnered with US-based Ciena Corporation, the network specialist, to increase the capacity and service flexibility of its backbone Domestic Fiber Optic Network (DFON). PLDT will deploy Ciena’s coherent 100 Gigabits per second (100G) technology and Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching solutions.

“As the first 100G network in the Philippines, this deployment will add significant bandwidth scalability, reliability and intelligence to PLDT’s network infrastructure. The network upgrade will complete PLDT’s core network modernization program and support the delivery of next-generation services to customers such as fiber-to-the-home, fiber-to-the-building, LTE/4G, IPTV and triple-play services,” PLDT President and CEO Napoleon L. Nazareno said.
