Utilities, mass transit, public safety—even garbage—are all connected to a network. Each new smart connection creates unpredictability—and drives the need for a network that can anticipate, react, and scale.
When mind-boggling volumes of data hit the network, when traffic slows to a crawl, or when the garbage bins are full, how do cities from Seoul to Denver avoid the pile-up?
With a network that adapts.
In cities like Denver, roadside sensors and CCTV cameras relay information to control centers that can predictively reroute traffic.
As smart cities run new technologies, they’ll require networks that deliver dynamic bandwidth, ultra-low latency, and the ability to manage, move, and store unimaginable volumes of data—all at enormous scale and speed.
And it’s not just the roads and cars talking to the network. Trash talks, too....
Thanks to network analytics, Seoul’s smart trash bins report on what, where, and how much a city of millions throws away.
In smart cities where everything is connected, the data piles up even faster than the garbage.
The Adaptive Network™ helps digest, analyze, and automate the network in real-time to optimize collection, improve sustainability, and make smart cities a better place to live.
Garbage in, data out.
Dense urban areas mean more data, more devices, and more sensors that need to connect in real time.
The Adaptive Network delivers the intelligent automation, network analytics, and programmable infrastructure—at scale—needed to turn these complex ecosystems into tomorrow's smartest cities.
The city of the future runs on the Adaptive Network.
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.
