The Adaptive Network

Reduce the complexity and costs of IP networks

with Adaptive IP

Orange connect the dots


Internet Protocol (IP) technology is the industry’s choice for emerging applications such as 5G, but the way IP protocols are actually delivered must evolve. Traditionally, the solution was to add more hardware-centric router platforms. This makes network operations management overly complex, expensive, and unsustainable.

Combine the need for more protocols with the trend toward virtualization of applications and services, the disaggregation of infrastructure, and the never-ending demands for increased bandwidth and network flexibility, and there’s clearly a need for an entirely new approach to IP architectures.

Taking an Adaptive Network approach

To address the new IP network requirements, Ciena has introduced Adaptive IPTM, an innovative solution that offers the essential IP capabilities required to support new applications, while allowing network providers to benefit from cloud-like scale, openness, and intelligent automation.

Adaptive IP is a solution that goes beyond the individual capabilities of a network element and builds upon a combination of Ciena packet products featuring streamlined IP capabilities and Blue Planet® Route Optimization and Analysis (ROA). Blue Planet ROA reviews and analyzes telemetry from the network and then uses open APIs to inform Blue Planet Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO) how to orchestrate services and traffic flows back into the infrastructure to provide an optimal IP configuration.


IP Delivered Differently with Ciena’s Adaptive IP:

Highly scalable and cost-efficient solution, based on a lean and open set of IP protocols for greater simplicity while expanding IP capabilities to the network edge, leveraging the industry’s leading coherent optics

Simplified operations by abstracting complexity to an SDN software layer, enabling network optimization and real-time visibility to simplify management and troubleshooting

Designed to evolve IP network infrastructure with an open and disaggregated approach, supporting multi-vendor environments to take advantage of the most innovative solutions
