Cyan (NYSE: CYNI), a leading provider of software-defined networking (SDN) and packet-optical solutions for network operators, today announced that its Blue Planet SDN Platform and Z-Series packet-optical hardware have been selected by the Jeollanam-Do province in South Korea. Deployed together with partner Telefield, the new network will deliver e-government applications in support of the two million citizens living in the province.

“We are pleased that Jeollanam-Do province recognized our competitive advantage and chose to work with Cyan and Telefield for their new Ethernet network,” said In-Soo Kim, director of sales, Telefield. “Our partnership with Cyan provides the province a unique value proposition in terms of overall functionality, service and support, and price.”

The Jeollanam-Do province is located in southwest South Korea and covers 22 cities and a population of two million people. Cyan and Telefield were selected as the exclusive SDN and packet-optical solution provider for the provincial government’s Carrier Ethernet network transformation project. Applications delivered by the network upgrade include Internet, VoIP and video conferencing.

“Cyan’s Blue Planet Platform lays the foundation for some of the most sophisticated, but easy-to-use and manage networks around the world,” said Michael Hatfield, president, Cyan. “By combining our SDN and packet-optical technology with Telefield’s expertise and support in South Korea, the province and its citizens will now be able to benefit from an advanced network, scalable for any e-government service or application.”

Cyan’s award-winning Blue Planet SDN and NFV Orchestration Platform allows network operators to automate, visualize, and manage their networks in multi-layer, multi-vendor environments. Cyan’s Z-Series packet-optical platforms combine packet and optical capabilities including Carrier Ethernet 2.0, DWDM, OTN, and ROADM, all within a single platform. This multi-layer integration provides a distinct cost and performance advantage compared to traditional multi-box designs while also offering customers the flexibility to transport services using the most efficient network layer.
