3926m

Service Delivery Switch

Ciena’s 3926m Service Delivery Switch allows the creation of value-added business or mobile backhaul services that combine connectivity with in-demand Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), as well as support for legacy TDM services. The 3926m can address today’s most challenging network scenarios, providing flexibility and future-proof attributes that de-risk business decisions while allowing for fast time to market.

Why 3926m?

Unmatched flexibility

The 3926m provides unmatched flexibility to address multiple applications, business models, and deployment environments without sacrificing service capabilities or quality of service. The platform supports interworking between multiple transport options via a flexible and scalable switching architecture, leading to complete service ingenuity and optimal utilization of network resources.

Secure Zero-touch provisioning

Ciena’s zero-touch provisioning simplifies system turn-up and enables device deployment, service turn-up, and Service Level Agreement (SLA) performance testing to be run from the network operations center. This efficiency can significantly lower OPEX, eliminating the need for on-site personnel or adjunct test equipment and ensuring consistent, reproducible test reports made available to the end-user. Operators can ramp service roll-outs faster, and at lower cost.

Features

No. 1

Offers 82 Gb/s of non-blocking switching capacity in a compact service demarcation device, running Ciena’s SAOS for advanced OAM and QoS functions

No. 2

Low-footprint packaging in a non-blocking architecture with 6 x 1GbE/10GbE SFP+ ports and 2 x 100M/1GbE ports

No. 3

Allows a field replaceable module for distributed VNF hosting on an Intel x86 server module or for TDM service support of up to 16 DS1/E1 services

No. 4

Benefits from Ciena’s Blue Planet MCP multilayer provisioning support for end-to-end network management control and planning

No. 5

Allows for orchestration via Ciena’s Blue Planet MDSO or a third-party solution; a truly open platform for integration of bestin-breed software functions

No. 6

Supports zero-touch provisioning to minimize OPEX and accelerate service turn-up while providing line-rate, built-in service activation testing
