Ciena helps connect Moldova to research network Geant

Thursday 22 March 2018 | 19:00 CET | News
Ciena acted as a partner of the EU-funded Eastern Partnership Connect (EaPConnect) project that increased the connectivity speeds between the Moldovan research and education (R&E) network in Moldova and the pan-European backbone network, Geant. This was possible through the upgrade of a network link between Moldova and Romania's capitals, Chisinau and Bucharest, to 100 Mbps from 50 Mbps. Other project partners included local operator Felix Telecom, the national R&E networks of Moldova and Romania – Renam and RoEduNet.
