Lumea and Ciena announced their collaboration to transform Lumea’s telecommunications services to offer customers high-speed 100G+ Wavelength services.
The upgrade enables connectivity to regional areas that can support bandwidth-intensive applications used for medical imaging, telehealth and remote surgery support, as well as high definition telepresence and real-time data backup.
Lumea head of telecommunications Glenn Wood (pictured) said, “We are excited to work with Ciena in enhancing our infrastructure so we can offer customers a more seamless and cost-effective alternative to traditional connectivity providers.
“With Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai technology, the high-capacity and more resilient fibre network delivers high-speed services as well as power and space efficiency benefits for Lumea’s enterprise, wholesale and government customers across Australia’s eastern states.
“This equips us to deliver the same level of performance enjoyed in metropolitan centres to regional businesses who have been relying on slow residential grade connections. Our goal is to continue bridging the digital divide, by providing access to technology that enables people to create value for their communities by developing new skills and driving innovation.” Wood said.
Ciena managing director of Australia and New Zealand Matt Vesperman says, “Lumea is a prime example of how improved connectivity enables a smarter and more connected society. With Ciena, Lumea adapts and scales to deliver new levels of performance while transitioning to a more sustainable network.”
They say the backbone network upgrade will significantly increase the network’s capacity to enable open access for 5G transmission, cloud and edge computing applications, as well as providing the ability to scale up as high as 800G as new applications emerge.
Using Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai-powered 6500 platform to support its Data Centre Interconnect (DCI) strategy, Lumea will be able to offer 100G to 400G Wavelength services between key data centres across one of Australia’s most diverse and secure fibre networks.
Lumea manages one of the largest fibre networks in Australia. The provider focuses on two main areas: data services and wireless colocation on its towers – with more than 130 telecommunications towers and 37,000 high voltage transmission towers.
