Purpose-built for scaling the network from the access to the metro core, the Z-Series Packet-Optical Platforms combine Carrier Ethernet 2.0, 10G/100G DWDM and ROADM functionality within a single, open platform, enabling cost-effective Ethernet service delivery with carrier-grade capabilities such as QoS, scalability, reliability and service management. Z-Series platforms leverage Ciena’s Blue Planet software to provide simplified multilayer network design, operations, SLA assurance, and service orchestration.

Scale with no restrictions

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.
