Service Delivery Switch


Ciena’s 3928 Service Delivery Switch is a cost-effective platform for 10 Gb/s Ethernet service delivery in a variety of business or mobile backhaul environments. Based on the Service-Aware Operating System (SAOS) used in all of Ciena’s Packet Networking products it delivers a consistent set of benefits, including interoperability between platforms, improved efficiency of operations, and service consistency among applications.

Why 3928?

Carrier Ethernet transport options

The 3928 provides unmatched flexibility to address multiple applications, business models, and deployment environments without sacrificing service capabilities or Quality of Service (QoS). Operators can use combinations of capabilities to address the specific needs of their packet network deployment.

Secure zero-touch provisioning

Ciena’s zero-touch provisioning simplifies system turn-up and enables device deployment, service turn-up, and 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 are made available to the end-user.
