How should a network evolve?
Ciena’s OPn network architecture gives you a blueprint for intelligent network evolution.
Bend the cost curve down
We’ll help you minimize high-touch, high-cost functions—such as IP routing and fine-grained traffic shaping—into fewer locations, while optimizing more locations for low-touch, streamlined forwarding and transport.
Monetize new applications and superior user experiences
You’ll be able to prototype and release services and applications faster, differentiate offerings, and deliver better customer experiences than possible with a traditional network.
- Intelligent optical and lean packet capabilities to scale exponentially at lower cost than alternative architectures
- Software automation and orchestration to speed and cost-reduce operations
- Better network integration with the data center, transforming connect, compute, and store into a programmable platform for a variety of new services
