Gigaclear Networks, the U.K’s leading provider of full fiber broadband connectivity to rural communities, recently deployed a 100G transport network across multiple countryside locations in the U.K. powered by optical and intelligent software solutions from Hanover-based Ciena.

The enhanced network will enable Internet service providers to offer advanced services, such as HD video streaming to business and residential customers. With this new network upgrade, rural regions in the U.K., including Devon, Somerset, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, will benefit from greater access to high-speed service with rapid backhaul connections from London to Bristol and Northants.
