With growing user demands for more services and capacity, it’s easy to maintain the status quo of continually adding more protocols to closed IP network designs that are managed by manual, error-prone operational processes.
Is there a better way? There is, and we call it Adaptive IP™.
Step into a new way of building IP-based networks—from access to metro—that’s automated, open, and lean. Ciena’s Adaptive IP is a unique approach that combines our market-leading routing and switching platforms, like WaveRouterTM , with machine-learning-powered analytics and intelligent automation software to improve flexibility, scalability, and faster time-to-revenue—providing a more future-proof IP network architecture.
You asked. Ciena delivered.
You asked us to reimagine IP networks. And that’s what we did. But it’s no longer a question of whether people want a new way to build their IP networks, but how. Ciena’s Joe Marsella explains how the innovations Ciena has made to deliver open, automated, and lean IP are benefiting customers and influencing how the industry is thinking about the evolution to next-generation metro and edge networks.
