Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP)

Ciena’s Zero-Touch Provisioning simplifies system turn-up and enables error-free deployment, service turn-up, and SLA performance testing to be run from the NOC. This dramatically lowers OPEX, eliminating the need for onsite personnel or adjunct test equipment and ensuring consistent, reproducible test reports for customer service acceptance. Operators can ramp service rollouts faster, and at lower cost, because the minimized training requirement permits use of a wider pool of technicians.

The 3904 implements carrier-class hierarchical QoS that permits delivery of a wide range of traffic types and rates over a single access infrastructure. These capabilities enable greater revenue-generation by utilizing available network resources efficiently, while improving customer satisfaction with enforceable and reliable SLAs.
