Short Take: Ciena targets metro market

Optical equipment provider Ciena is set to launch a new set of technology targeted at the emerging market for metropolitan area networking equipment. The new gear, called Metro One, is intended for use in networks encompassing large cities and which serve as important high-speed junctions between long-distance networks and local corporate or residential network connections. The company said one unnamed European communications carrier has already signed on to test the equipment. The new technology will be demonstrated at next week's Optical Fiber Communication Conference in Baltimore, Md.
