With the ability to scale to Terabit/s switching per slot and flexibly route wavelengths without restriction across any one of 16 paths, the programmable 6500-T12/T24 configurations enable service providers to efficiently distribute customizable content to their end-users and provide an on-demand, superior customer experience.
Addresses ultra-high capacity requirements using less hardware via converged packet, OTN, and DWDM functions in a single platform
Provides significant power and space savings with support of 6Tb/s of capacity in less than half a rack and 12Tb/s per rack day one, scaling to 24Tb/s per rack
Supports a modular photonic architecture, providing lowest first-in costs and pay-as-you-grow benefits
Provides fully flexible wavelength routing without restrictions using Ciena’s industry-leading WaveLogic Photonics with Flexible Grid CDC ROADM
Enables programmability with multilayer control plane offering ease-of-management advantages as well as a wide breadth of SLA offerings
