Ciena FutureLab Allstream

The changes in networking and communications technology happen at an extremely fast pace. If you want to keep up, hitching a ride on Ciena’s FutureLab might not be a bad idea.

A big rig packed full of the company’s latest equipment as well as a video wall, boardroom and kitchenette, FutureLab has been visiting Ciena customers across North America, and its recent stop in Toronto offered a great opportunity for Allstream, as one of Ciena’s strategic partners, to welcome some local IT executives aboard.

In the clip below, we show how technology from Ciena could set up a sort of “bandwidth broker” to move data (perhaps for backup purposes) across large distances, even from one city to another. Fasten your seatbelts for this exclusive behind-the-scenes look.

For more close-up views of Ciena technology, take a look back at our coverage of its mobile innovation tour last year, and visit the Ciena Insights blog for more details on its recently-launched Agility software portfolio.
