Maryland-based Ciena Corp., which has a large presence in Ottawa, has signed a deal with the Colorado Department of Transportation to upgrade the agency’s fiber optic network, which connects to sensors and devices along highways. The upgrade will allow the agency to have up to 1,500 devices. That includes “traffic cameras, traffic message signs, speed sensors and weather monitoring devices. Adding more connected devices will enable CDOT to better manage the transportation system, thereby reducing congestion and crashes,” the company said in a press release.
