The Z-Series, Z22, Z33, and Z77, provide carrier-grade capabilities such as QoS, scalability, reliability, and service management. They also leverage Ciena’s Planet Operate software to provide simplified multilayer network operations, management, and service provisioning.
Optimized for high-capacity aggregation and metro/regional core network deployments, the Z77 Packet-Optical Platform offers high service density and capacity benefits, scaling to 2.8 Tb/s in a compact 13RU form factor. Additional fiber efficiencies can be achieved via an optional central fabric, all with no sacrifice to service density.
The mid-sized, environmentally hardened Z33 Packet-Optical Platform balances flexibility with low cost to efficiently scale network capacity at the edge, with the ability to extend service delivery into outside plant cabinets. High- density interfaces support any service mix, providing incredible scale to 800 Gb/s in a compact 5RU form factor.
At just 2RU in height, the Z22 Packet-Optical Platform is compact, environmentally hardened, and optimized for deployments at the network edge. With support for up to 400 Gb/s of packet services per shelf, the Z22 high-density platform provides space and power benefits for a wide range of applications, including low-latency business Ethernet services and remote cabinet deployments for high-capacity Ethernet backhaul.
