High-density packet aggregation. High-capacity coherent optical. You need both to elevate the experience for your end-users. We’ve got both—combined into one, compact modular platform—to simplify your network and reduce your packet and transport costs.
Ciena’s 8180 Coherent Networking Platform combines the industry-leading capacity and embedded intelligence of WaveLogic coherent transport with the density, openness, and programmability of a packet switch. As part of an end-to-end solution that peers with both packet switch devices and coherent networking platforms, it provides a high-density on-ramp to the coherent optical network.
Customers are demanding ever-faster Internet speeds and availability. In response, MSOs are trying to simplify operations by driving digital technologies closer to subscribers, with the goal of providing high-quality access to content.
As part of Ciena Fiber Deep Solutions, the 8180 delivers more bandwidth and scalability between hub and headend locations so network operators can reduce power and space. It also alleviates fiber congestion by providing an efficient mechanism to consolidate multiple 100 Gb/s connections from the access network into 400 Gb/s wavelengths for transport across the metro core.
Built with WaveLogic Ai coherent technology, the 8180 dramatically increases fiber capacity, delivering up to 30.4 Tb/s per fiber pair to deliver the scale operators need for evolving their networks to support higher-capacity applications.
Built for packet aggregation and switching, plus optical-layer programmability, the 8180 exemplifies adaptability by providing a greater level of software control and automation, analytics and intelligence, and programmability—giving customers more network control when they need it.
