High-capacity, automated network supports surging demand for gaming, video and cloud experiences

Lightstorm Telecom Ventures (LTV), an independent and carrier-neutral infrastructure provider in India, has deployed Ciena’s coherent optics, network management and advanced automation software to serve the country’s OTT, data center and cloud providers.

This deployment will transform LTV’s metro and long-distance network to support the delivery of low latency and high-capacity digital services. LTV’s network covers more than 10,000 kilometers and 60 data centers in five cities, including Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad, as well as strategic subsea cable landing stations providing high-capacity connectivity to Mumbai and Chennai.

“Investing in networking solutions and software from Ciena equips our customers with unmatched speeds and programmable network capabilities,” said Amajit Gupta, chief executive officer, LTV. “Together with Ciena, we’re helping to further establish India as a hub for international connectivity.”

With Ciena’s portfolio of hardware, software and services, LTV will provide an intelligent and reliable network that can adapt and respond quickly to rapidly changing user requirements. Deploying 600-800 Gbps per wavelength delivers increased capacity to support high-bandwidth content, and a software-driven flexible photonic architecture accelerates service velocity and maximizes the potential of new services.

“Bringing new digital services to India requires an intelligently automated network that can dynamically adapt and scale,” said Ryan Perera, vice president and country head, Ciena India. “With an upgraded network, LTV makes Digital India a reality and fuels the next wave of telecom growth.”
