City of Pasadena Builds Advanced Communications Network with MRV

  • MRV Communications
CHATSWORTH, CA - The city of Pasadena has selected MRV Communications’ FiberDriver optical transport solution to provide high-capacity optical services for its mission-critical municipal network. The city’s new network will be used to link city facilities using future-proof, high bandwidth services over a fully-owned fiber infrastructure

“By building a state-of-the-art optical infrastructure for its communications services, the city of Pasadena is taking an innovative approach to serving the needs of the community and, at the same time, supporting economic growth and development in the region.”

“We needed to build out a network that offers enough bandwidth to support the variety of city services we provide,” said Phillip Leclair, chief information officer at the city of Pasadena. “MRV’s FiberDriver optical transport solution can provide the high-capacity bandwidth to connect essential public safety systems, as well as carry the local access television channels with HD broadcast quality, all while allowing us to reduce our total cost of ownership.”

Creating a Resilient Network
When the city relocated its data center to a new facility, it took advantage of the opportunity to upgrade its existing fiber ring and added a Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) system from MRV Communications to create a resilient network capable of delivering more than 80 wavelengths, each offering up to 10 Gbps. The MRV optical equipment consumes very low power and occupies a small footprint, minimizing real estate requirements at the new data center and reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

“By building a state-of-the-art optical infrastructure for its communications services, Pasadena is taking an innovative approach to serving the needs of the community and, at the same time, supporting economic growth and development in the region,” said Tim Pillow, senior VP of sales and marketing from MRV Communications. “The flexibility of MRV’s optical transport solution enables the delivery of high-capacity services for any size and density of fiber network with industry-leading power and space efficiency. As a result, customers like the city of Pasadena are able to provide the most bandwidth-rich applications that its residents, businesses and visitors demand, including high-definition video services.”
