We’ve reached a pinnacle moment—applications like the Internet of Things, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence have transitioned from a dream to a reality. This requires networks to run more efficiently and be more responsive than ever before. It’s not just about becoming autonomous—the network needs to adapt.

Rebecca Prudhomme, Ciena’s VP of Portfolio Marketing, walks us through the Adaptive Network vision—Ciena’s bold response to users’ voracious appetites for bandwidth—and discusses the opportunity it presents for network providers.

Also in this episode, Ciena’s Brian Lavallée discusses the transition to 4G and 5G, which is once again expected to dominate the conversation at Mobile World Congress.
