HANOVER, MD - Fibertech Networks, a provider of metro-based fiber optic network services to customers in the eastern and central United States, has deployed the 6500 Packet-Optical Platform and Service Delivery Switches from Ciena.

Fibertech Networks has built metro-area fiber networks in 29 mid-size markets in the Eastern and Central regions of the United States. The company currently owns and operates a fiber optic network of over 9,000 route miles and more than 8,000 on-net buildings.
