Roll out the converged IP and Ethernet network of the future with Ciena’s Packet Networking portfolio.

The top 6 features of a truly future-proof converged Ethernet and IP network

As traffic volumes continue to explode, traditional IP networks are creating major operational challenges for network operators. With IP routers required in all areas of the network, management and support requirements are typically very complex.

It doesn’t have to be this way. 

Many forward-thinking operators have turned to Ethernet to future-proof their aggregation networks.

Read our blog on how, with converged IP and Ethernet, you can replace a large number of IP routers with fewer, highly scalable converged IP and Ethernet nodes.


Preparing for the high-bandwidth future with Ciena Ethernet solutions

Question: How did a leading multinational telecommunications company achieve scalability on-demand, with lower network operating costs and flexibility to support future converged services?

Answer: With Ciena’s simple, repeatable Ethernet architecture and ‘right-sized’ IP functions to support key services.

Read this case study to find out how one of Europe’s leading operators was able to replace its disparate legacy aggregation networks with standardised Ciena Ethernet solutions to maximise operating efficiency and scale services without limits.

7 reasons why your customers need Business Ethernet, now

As a service provider, you continually need to find new ways to increase revenue, but how can you adapt your business strategies to achieve growth objectives? For a start, consider adding Ethernet services for high-capacity services—from 1GbE to 10GbE and 100GbE and beyond—to offer a differentiated and competitive service to corporate customers.

Getting high bandwidth to the network edge

When it comes to designing any network, success depends on bringing traffic as close as possible to its final destination. The key is building large, high-capacity routes that minimize the distance to travel and paths to cross.

For this to work, you’ll need the Adaptive Network™—and the right network partner.

Read our blog series on how Ciena checks all the boxes—with packet-optical leadership for Fiber Deep architecture, street-tough kit, intelligent automation and orchestration software, and scalability on demand.

What is the Adaptive Network?

The Adaptive Network is a new approach that expands on autonomous networking concepts to transform the static network into a dynamic, programmable environment driven by analytics and intelligence.
