Submarine Networks: Resilience at Lowest Unit Costs

  1. 1. THE NEW GLOBAL NETWORK IMPERATIVEResilience at Lowest Unit CostsPhilippe MorinSenior Vice President, Global Field OperationsCienaSeptember 21, 2011© Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  2. 2. The New Global Network Capacity Upgrades Intelligent Switching & Restoration2 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  3. 3. Inter-Continental Communications DependenceBorderless Communications Increasing reliant upon global communications  Cloud Services  Research & Education  Financial Institutions  Medical Institutions  Consumer Multimedia  Multinational Corporations 3 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  4. 4. Bandwidth Demand TrendsThe Perfect Storm on the Horizon Number of Broadband Subscriber Increases Mobile Internet 10 Billion+ Units/Users + Broadband Subscriber Bandwidth Increases + Growing Dominance of Video Traffic Personal Computers Desktop Internet 100 Million+ Units 1 Billion+ Units/Users 1990 2000 2010 2020 4 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  5. 5. International Bandwidth GrowthNeed for SpeedTrans-Pacific 49% 49Tbps Trans-Atlantic 44% Intra Asia 85Tbps 54% 59TbpsUS/Latin America Europe-Asia 45% 58% 38Tbps 23Tbps CAGR 2006 - 2010 : >100% : 80% - 100% : 60% - 80% : 50% - 60% D Bandwidth by traffic route and country international bandwidth (CAGR 2010-2017) Reference.: Global Bandwidth Forecast Service, Telegeography, 2011 5 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  6. 6. Global Communication NetworkSubmarine Cables… World’s Most Strategic Network Links Global network availability must be ensured Minimize wet and dry plant network demarcation Single seamless network that spans planet earth The New Global Network… erasing demarcation points between submarine and terrestrial networks 6 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  7. 7. Global Bandwidth Supply & DemandDemand Increasing… Prices Decreasing Significant increases in demand International prices are declining Reference: 1Q2011 Global Bandwidth Forecast, 2011 (TeleGeography) How can providers differentiate? Reference: Median Trans-Pacific 10 Gbps Wavelength Prices, Q2 2010-Q2 2011 (TeleGeography) 7 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  8. 8. Increasing Bandwidth DemandsCost-Effective Coherent-Based Capacity Upgrades 40G/100G coherent channel upgrades Existing wet plants remains untouched Far less expensive than laying new cables Lowering the cost per transported bit 8 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  9. 9. Undersea Cable Protection ChallengesUnique Operating Environment Undersea cables laid along seismically active and heavily fished/trawled routes Multiple terrestrial networks funneled through same Cable Landing Station thus amplifying any outages National economy/security affected by outages 9 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  10. 10. Differentiation via Network Restoration IntelligenceCustomized Service Level Agreements Traditional Linear/Ring Based Protection Inability to survive more than 2 simultaneous failures Minimal service protection differentiation Intelligent Mesh Network Protection Ability to survive multiple simultaneous failures Intelligence enables customized protection offerings 10 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  11. 11. Differentiated Restoration OfferingsAttracting and Retaining New Customers 50ms Restoration + Maximum Survivability Untapped Market 50ms Restoration + 3 Failure Survivability Stricter Service Level Agreements Traditional (50ms) Protection 100ms Protection + 1 Failure Survivability 250ms Protection + 1 Failure Survivability 500ms Protection + 1 Failure Survivability Untapped Market 1sec Protection + 1 Failure Survivability 10sec Protection + 1 Failure Survivability No Protection 11 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  12. 12. The New Global NetworkSeamless Networking Spanning Wet & Dry Plants Erasing traditional terrestrial/submarine demarcation for truly resilient global networks 12 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
  13. 13. SummarySubmarine Network Intelligence… Key Enabler Global intercontinental bandwidth demand continues to increase Cost-effective capacity upgrades over existing/new undersea cables Intelligent network protection will enable improved network resilience The New Global Network… the whole is greater than the sum of its parts 13 © Ciena Confidential and Proprietary
