What does this mean for you?

  • Greater capacity at longer unregenerated reaches, with fewer regens deployed
  • Programmable performance for latency-sensitive applications
  • Increased capacity across cascaded ROADMs via spectral shaping
  • Superior tolerance to chromatic dispersion and PMD for operation over ALL fiber

Extreme programmability with WaveLogic 3 Extreme

With integrated wire-speed encryption and the ability to adjust to any one of five modulations, Ciena's WaveLogic 3 Extreme chipset provides maximum capacity for any distance. The end result? Secure high-capacity transport at reduced cost per bit.

Extreme 16QAM – Doubles the capacity and spectral efficiency of 100G with 200 Gb/s per wavelength; WaveLogic 3 Extreme extends 16QAM benefits from metro to regional distances.
Extreme 8QAM – Supports 50% additional capacity versus QPSK with 150 Gb/s per wavelength, for applications ranging between 16QAM and QPSK distances.
Extreme QPSK – Provides strong performance 100 Gb/s per wavelength for most long-haul and transatlantic submarine distances; WaveLogic 3 Extreme provides enhanced non-linear mitigation forbestperformance alongside 10G channels.
Extreme BPSK – Achieves 100G transmission over trans-Pacific submarine applications using two 50 Gb/s carriers; WaveLogic 3 Extreme provides additional robustness to non-linear impairments.
Extreme 8D-2QAM – A unique modulation developed by Ciena that offers equivalent spectral efficiency to BPSK, but provides additional system gain and robustness against non-linear impairments, increasing reach by up to 20 percent and capacity by up to 40 percent versus BPSK.
