Distributed Access Architecture and Converged Interconnect Network

To achieve 10G connectivity everywhere, cable MSOs require a collection of technologies including Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) and a Converged Interconnect Network (CIN), while extending fiber deeper in their access networks.

Ciena’s Adaptive Network™ framework enables cable MSOs to execute their DAA strategies and CIN deployments—and meet the constantly changing demands of customers while expanding their addressable market supporting new areas like 5G and enterprise services.

The Ciena approach for DAA and CIN offers the most comprehensive solution in the industry

High-density routing and switching aggregation with integrated optics

Future-proofing  the network with Ciena SAOS (Service Aware Operation System) telemetry, automation, and slicing capabilities

Industry-leading coherent optical solutions

Maximizing capacity and fiber utilization in the access and metro networks

Intelligent control and automation

Providing multi-layer visualization and lifecycle management of multiple services and operational efficiencies

Ciena’s Adaptive IP™ approach provides optimization and simplification of the CIN and metro networks as MSOs rollout their DAA and digital transformation strategies. It decreases operating expenses with data-driven automation and streamlined IP network technologies. Adaptive IP is an automated, open, and lean network architecture leveraging Ciena's Routing and Switching Platforms; Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) domain controller; and Adaptive IP Apps, delivering standard-based IP differently.
