F6 Networks is leveraging Ciena’s converged packet optical and packet networking offerings to deliver improved broadband connectivity between Saint John and Fredericton, N.B. With the new 100G network, F6 Networks says it is addressing growing demand for broadband connectivity throughout the province.
The company is also currently building an open access, dark fibre network that provides broadband connectivity between Atlantic Canada and the Northeastern U.S. for public sector organizations, private enterprises, Internet services providers and wireless carriers.
It says the expansion will allow it to respond to new business opportunities in areas such as cloud connectivity and Ethernet business services, or wholesale mobile backhaul and dark fiber services.
F6 recently announced a collaboration with CANARIE, Canada’s national research and education network to support network-enabled research at post-secondary institutions throughout northern New Brunswick.
