Industries: Public Sector

Today’s public sector networks are strategic mission assets that enable enhanced learning, facilitate collaborative discovery, provide citizen services and ensure national security. The scalability, reliability, performance and data assurance of the network is critical to mission success.

Ciena helps public sector organizations modernize and unlock the value of the network through an engagement model focused on understanding mission goals, solution alternatives and risk assessment. We provide programmable, converged multi-service network infrastructure that enables cost-effective scale while simplifying operational support. Our software solutions provide vendor agnostic SDN for multi-domain service orchestration and our NFV solutions enable service delivery in minutes, not months.
