South Korea’s SK Telink selects Ciena to upgrade transpacific submarine network

South Korean network operator SK Telink has selected network solutions provider Ciena to upgrade its submarine network spanning Seoul, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.

The partnership is set to deliver more differentiated customer experiences by implementing Ciena’s Adaptive IP solution to build a converged packet network for SK Telink, paving the way for future IP-based services.

“Our customers are consuming data at breakneck speed, and to keep up, we deployed Ciena to build one of the first packet-based transport networks in a transpacific route,” said Jeongyeol Lee, the Director of ICT Infra Headquarters at SK Telink.

As part of the Adaptive IP solution, SK Telink will leverage Ciena’s 6500 Packet Transport System to lower its office footprint and power consumption.

“As SK Telink prepares for the country’s next wave of digital growth, Ciena’s packet solutions lay the foundation for a network that can respond in real-time to changing demands,” said Henry Kim, the President and General Manager of Ciena North Asia Region.

SK Telink and the America-based Ciena hope the upgraded submarine network will enable the South Korean network operator to achieve new levels of scale, flexibility, and programmability, delivering high-speed Internet and cloud services.
