Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global provider of real time communications technology and IP optical networking solutions to many of the world’s largest service providers, enterprises, and critical infrastructure operators to modernize and protect their networks, today announced that Blueline, a provider of internet, voice and television services throughout Madagascar, has selected Ribbon’s Apollo Optical Networking solution to upgrade the bandwidth capacity of its communications network.


“We needed to quickly expand our bandwidth capabilities in several key cities and had unique requirements for housing critical optical equipment along some very challenging terrain in our coverage area,” said Damien de Lamberterie, General Manager. “Ribbon provided us with a customized solution that allowed us to both meet our current bandwidth needs and easily scale as we continue to grow, while delivering specialized outdoor cabinets for housing valuable equipment at add and drop points along the route. These customized cabinets included power supply with 36-hour battery backup that enables the high level of reliability needed in the region.”


The Apollo 9600 Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) and Optical Transport solution provides Blueline multi-service transport capabilities on an energy-efficient multi-wavelength 100 Gigabit (100G) backbone that can be seamlessly upgraded to 200G as capacity needs increase.
“We are pleased to deliver a state-of-the-art end-to-end Optical solution to Blueline, enabling them to offer their customers highly desired high-speed broadband and connectivity communications services,” said Lior Tourgeman, Ribbon’s VP Sales, Africa. “Our Apollo solution provides Blueline with up to multi-terabit capacity in a very small form-factor, while offering carrier-grade reliability. We are also extremely proud of the fact that we could design a special solution that enables Blueline to protect its network equipment.”


In addition to delivering the ability to offer the latest in communications services and high-speed bandwidth, Ribbon’s Apollo solution enables Blueline to significantly reduce operational and maintenance costs through an active monitoring system that traces fiber cuts to within a meter and facilitates quick repairs if lines are cut.
