The Adaptive Network - Mastering Complexity

Every minute, thousands of devices are connecting to your network. Phones. TVs. Smart watches. Electronic tattoos? Probably.

At Ciena, we don’t fear complexity. We’ve combined automation and intelligence in a scalable, programmable, and flexible network that thrives on complexity – getting smarter every day.

We call it the Adaptive Network. Because survival of the fittest means survival of the most adaptive.

The Adaptive Network

Software control and automation

A more open and agile network

As the industry moves toward more software-centric networks that leverage SDN, NFV, and open APIs, true automation becomes more viable. Multi-domain service orchestration and software-defined domain control simplify the end-to-end management and automation of services across multi-layer, multi-vendor, multi-domain hybrid networks. Tight interworking with analytics-driven intelligence provides the basis of a network that is self-healing and self-optimizing.

Analytics and intelligence

Deriving business insights from network big data

We have access to more data about how the network is performing than ever before. And with that real-time data comes the ability to apply analytics and machine learning to accurately predict potential network problems and anticipate trends. When combined with software-defined control, the result leads to closed-loop automation and a self-learning network with the ability to proactively and immediately adapt to your customers' needs.

Programmable infrastructure

An on-demand world requires real-time response

The Adaptive Network uses a packet-optical infrastructure to securely manage a dynamic pool of virtual and physical resources that can be accessed and configured via common, open interfaces. It’s highly instrumented and can export real-time network performance data and scale to meet the demands of applications and services running on top of it.
