On Thursday, October 20th, some of Canada’s most influential business leaders will gather in Ottawa for an exclusive customer event, co-hosted by communication solutions company Allstream, and network specialist, US-based Ciena. Customers of both Allstream and Ciena will have the opportunity to observe live demonstrations showcasing next generation technology and to listen to technology experts speak about Internet Protocol (IP) Wavelength-based technology and how and why it is gaining momentum in the marketplace.
“At Allstream, we think of ourselves as technology innovators and industry educators— we not only lead the path but also educate our customers along the way. To remain a market leader, we must ensure that our customers are well-prepared for what is to come,” said Dean Prevost, President of Allstream.
Allstream uses Ciena’s groundbreaking coherent optical technology to increase its network capacity, enabling Allstream to provide higher speed and more resilient broadband IP Wavelength services to customers nationwide. Wavelength services are an important part of Allstream’s portfolio of IP connectivity services. Businesses are increasingly transitioning to IP Wavelength services as they are scalable, cost-effective and future ready.
Allstream continues to make strong progress executing its IP strategy with significant sales in the mid-market. Some of the customers that recently signed contracts to take advantage of Allstream’s suite of IP connectivity services include ELAD Canada, Kc Management, Libro Financial Group, Factory Tile Depot and Edgepoint.
