Telecom Ottawa, a network services provider to Eastern Ontario businesses and public-sector organizations, today announced the availability of a suite of SONET, WDM and storage extension services enabled by the ONLINE Metro Multiservice DWDM transport platform from Ciena Canada Inc.

The new services are designed to provide Canadian federal government agencies as well as enterprises and carriers with 10-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity throughout the Ottawa metropolitan region.

Telecom Ottawa launched the new services at the GTEC conference taking place this week at the Ottawa Congress Centre.

“Government communications requirements are changing drastically to support real-time decision-making and inter-agency collaboration, so the performance and reliability of multi-site wide area networks is critical,” said Mike Aquino, vice president, Americas Sales at Ciena.
