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.
Taking care of ourselves has become a global networking activity. In an IoT world, data from sensors will inform everything from wellness to critical care.
It's way beyond just fitness tracking.
The Adaptive Network is built to handle the pressure and keep pumping while it scales rapidly-gathering intelligence, analyzing, and securely moving massive amounts of data.
Always growing stronger. Always getting smarter.
Because survival of the fittest means survival of the most adaptive.
Thousands of fans simultaneously stream, post, and live-broadcast themselves—to millions—all over the world.
How will networks adapt?
For today’s networks, survival of the fittest means survival of the most adaptive.
That’s why Ciena partners with our customers to create the Adaptive Network; to make complexity and demand manageable—even foreseeable—as the appetite for bandwidth skyrockets.
We build these abilities into the network, while keeping critical controls in the hands of network providers.
It means your network is set up to be able to take predictive action, to know what to do next.
It means you have a network that is ready to tune itself to keep adapting and delivering capacity and services—no matter what. It means that you keep performing for your customers, because the show must always go on.
Whether at home or on the go, legions of binge-watchers need performance with zero failure—no matter where they are—so they can stream and react through their devices in real time.
They want their zombies on demand, and your network better be ready to feed them.
Your network must anticipate voracious demand, delivering additional power when and where it's needed, without falling victim to congestion that kills the customer experience.
In the world of anytime, anywhere—your network must adapt to survive.
Combining the forces of intelligent automation, tunable scalability, and real-time performance data, the Adaptive Network anticipates and responds to shifting demand. Ciena works with you to build a network that will arm you to deliver in a video-hungry world.
Your customers want to watch zombies. They don't want their network to become one.
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.
