Architected for network modernization, Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform converges comprehensive Ethernet, TDM, and WDM capabilities in one platform for cost-effective delivery of emerging and existing services, from the access edge to the backbone core.
Ciena’s new coherent interfaces give you a full suite of field-proven, plug-and-play coherent 40G and 100G solutions for metro, long-haul terrestrial, and submarine applications. These WaveLogic 3 programmable transceivers enable broader, more economical deployment of 100G throughout the network—and can scale to 400G.
More services, more business
The 6500’s 10G transponders enable high-density,
multi-protocol, and low-latency capabilities to
maximize your service revenue opportunities.
These modules complement high-capacity line rates with OTN switching to optimize bandwidth utilization and network efficiency. And they offer the added benefit of insulating your network against uncertain service mix by providing transparent transport of all client services.
Do more with less
Ciena’s E-Suite modules, including eMOTR, fully integrate packet switching within transport, providing sub-GE grooming for improved wavelength efficiencies and traffic prioritization for SLA adherence—so you can do it all with less equipment.
Best of both worlds
Tune your network toward packet and/or OTN, in any ratio, with these high-density fabric modules. Fabric-based switching complements blade-based switching, allowing you to tailor your network from low-capacity point-to-point to high-capacity mesh connectivity, as needed.
Get the full range of photonic architectures, from passive filters for simple service extension to directionless, colorless, and gridless ROADMs for the power to send any service anywhere in the network, dynamically.
