Network solutions provider Ciena Corporation (Nasdaq:CIEN) announced on Tuesday that Ritter Communications, a communications provider based in Arkansas, will deploy Ciena's new packet networking solutions to support growing customer demand for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) wholesale transport and Internet services as well as mobile backhaul requirements for Tier 1 mobile operators.

Financial details of this deployment were not available.

Ritter will deploy Ciena's 5160 SAS, which features 10GbE density with 24 ports in a compact, single rack unit (1RU) form factor, which will significantly reduces the amount of equipment Ritter would otherwise have to install and manage. Also, Ritter will deploy Ciena's new 5142 SAS, a flexible, compact edge platform that provides efficient 1GbE to 10GbE aggregation density in a 1RU, fixed chassis configuration.

These new 5160 and 5142 also provide Ritter with 10GbE service activation testing, extended temperature range support, full synchronisation support and greatly reduced power and space footprint, all critical aspects of improving customer satisfaction and overall deployment lifecycle costs, Ciena said.

In addition, Ritter will also leverage Ciena's OneControl Unified Management System to improve operational efficiency and seamlessly manage its entire portfolio of Ciena solutions from edge to core.

Ciena said that it will also provide project consulting via Ciena's Specialist Services portfolio.
