ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Aecero, a data center provider in Southern California, has selected Ciena’s (NYSE: CIEN) packet networking and converged packet optical platforms to support the launch of the Aecero Cloud Exchange service, helping to tackle the “last mile” challenge of cloud computing — reaching the cloud. Businesses using Aecero as their data center now have direct high-speed connectivity to major cloud computing providers, including Microsoft and Google, with dedicated connections at speeds of up to 80 Gbps per interconnect.

“Aecero has established itself as a leading provider of power and cooling infrastructure,” says Garrett Mckey, Vice President of Sales, Global Cloud Networking, Ciena. “We are pleased to support Aecero as they enter an exciting new phase of network growth and reach their goal of becoming the top data center provider in Southern California with the Aecero Cloud Exchange.”

Cloud computing allows businesses to quickly and safely scale and to test new technologies with minimal investment. However, public internet access to cloud computing providers can’t meet the speed, latency, and security requirements of enterprise applications.

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
