Telefónica Deutschland, a leading integrated telecommunications provider, has selected software from Blue Planet, a division of Ciena , to support the preparation of its network in Germany to adapt to escalating data traffic and bandwidth demands from users.

Telefónica Deutschland is preparing its transport network with open, software-defined network (SDN) orchestration and a partially disaggregated multi-vendor optical network architecture to transform network operations and improve the delivery of new services. Blue Planet will enable the service provider to lower its operating expenses (OPEX) while optimizing its network to offer services such as 5G, video streaming and online gaming.
