Orlando-based Summit Broadband has enlisted Ciena to deploy its Adaptive IP approach to boost capacity and expand its network to serve major cities across Florida. Summit is deploying Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai coherent optics across a flexible 6500 ROADM network, delivering 400GbE wave services to increase capacity and reach more users. The vendor notes that it has helped the ISP to ‘create data superhighways encircling the Florida peninsula, serving customers in Central, West, and Southwest Florida.’
As previously reported by CommsUpdate, in January 2020 Washington, DC-based investment firm Grain Management completed the acquisition of a majority interest in Summit Broadband from Cable Bahamas. The deal was valued at USD332.5 million.
