Ribbon Communications, Inc., a global provider of real time communications software and network solutions to service providers, enterprises, and critical infrastructure sectors, today announced that it has been selected to modernize and extend the University of Trieste’s LightNet Research and Education Network (REN) in partnership with TIM. Ribbon will deploy its portfolio of E-Line and E-LAN protected services solution, part of its Neptune and Apollo product lines, to deliver enhanced connectivity to the university’s students, faculty and research centers. The company was selected for its outstanding portfolio, proven track record of success, and previous experience in successfully collaborating with TIM.

“Learning environments and research centers have become increasingly digitized or digitally-led, making access to reliable, resilient, and competitive connectivity services essential,” said Giorgio Giorgetti, LightNet Technical Director at The University of Trieste. “Our high capacity connections with the national REN GARR, our cross-border links with Slovenia's REN ARNES, and the use of supercomputers for AI simulation and big data analytics have increased our users’ need for a high capacity, scalable and adaptable network that cost-effectively meets shifting requirements. We’re pleased to be working with Ribbon and TIM for this upgrade.”

The three-year, fully turnkey open project, already underway, will replace the existing legacy network infrastructure deployed in the city of Trieste and the regional extension of the network connecting universities and research centers. The solution leverages the Apollo ROADM (Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer) dynamic layer for the underlying backbone, and Neptune to deliver E-Line and E-LAN services. Ribbon’s Muse network lifecycle management system will provide the end-to-end management.

“We’re delighted to have been chosen to upgrade the LightNet research and education network with next generation network infrastructure technology. This is our eighth consecutive win in this unique sector with similar projects in the USA and across Europe,” said Fernando Valdivielso, Ribbon’s EVP of EMEA and APAC Sales. “Our high performance, future-proof networking solutions portfolio has demonstrated itself to be particularly well suited to the needs of the REN community worldwide time and again.”

About The University of Trieste
The University of Trieste (units.it) is a public research university in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, in northeast Italy, consisting of nearly a dozen departments serving more than 16,000 students and nearly 1,500 professors, associates and staff.

About LightNet
The University of Trieste is currently the leading institution within the LightNet cooperation agreement, established in 2006 by the academic and research community of Trieste and GARR (Italy's NREN). The main goal of the LightNet association is to plan, manage and operate his own local Research and Educational Network infrastructure, implementing the most technically advanced solutions available in the field of fiber optic communications. The network connects to the GARR backbone the institutions involved in such cooperation, linking together various facilities composed by offices, laboratories, libraries, observatories, a synchrotron/free electron laser facility, a science park and many other research plants, supporting multiple applications such as Big Data transfers and analysis, e-learning, multimedia, visual and performing arts, high energy physics, materials science, radio astronomy, earth observation and supercomputing. The LightNet network is a widespread infrastructure, based on the acquisition of about 245 km of dark fiber and the use of self-operated telecommunication devices. At present, the network covers the whole territory of Trieste and is also directly connected to ARNES with two Cross Border Fibre links with Slovenia. Thanks to a 1.5M € contribution from the FVG Regional Government, an expansion of such infrastructure towards a regional extension is underway, together with the co-involvement of new institutions such as the University of Udine. The direct management of the infrastructure has always been a key factor in LightNet and allowed LightNet’s institutions to experiment the flexible use of the transmission spectrum, a programmable photonic and packet layers in a disaggregated network model with open line system.
