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.
Hear what a few of our customers—Xiber, SK Telink, and MLGC, to name a few—have to say.
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.
Take a look at our most recent and featured content related to IP network evolution, Adaptive IP, and Routing and Switching.
There’s no question that Segment Routing MPLS (SR-MPLS) has surged in recent years. But what percentage of operators are deploying it? Why? What about the newest segment routing technology: SRv6? ACG Research recently surveyed service provider executives about all of this and more. Ciena’s Ivana Lemos details the findings in her blog.
Taking IP/Optical convergence to the next level
Converging IP and optical layers? Don’t forget multi-layer operations. An effective IP/Optical convergence strategy is more than just a plug or a router—Ciena’s Coherent Routing is designed with that in mind.
Whether you’re providing enterprise or residential services, you want to protect your network investment and prepare your network for anything. Ciena’s Universal Aggregation (UA) solution enables aggregation of traffic from TDM, IP, and Ethernet services using dedicated and shared fiber on the same, cost-effective routing and switching platform.
Building separate residential and business infrastructures is not sustainable and won’t meet the ever-increasing demand for high-capacity connections. What if you could bridge the digital divide using a common and open operating system and PON ecosystem with a single management tool for all services? It’s possible with Ciena’s PON solution.
Now available on demand, this webinar explores how coherent routing and Adaptive IP can solve your capacity and routing problems in the unpredictable world of ever-changing traffic patterns and never-ending demand for scale.
Shifting market dynamics are driving the need for higher bandwidth and lower latency at the network edge. Ciena’s Coherent Routing solution plays a key role in addressing these challenges by simplifying networks and making them highly scalable and sustainable.
Ciena's Routing and Switching solutions, powered by our field-proven SAOS, present the ideal infrastructure to evolve toward an open, flexible, and scalable IP network enabling network-level programmability and intelligence for next-generation networks.
Adaptive IP leverages Ciena’s Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) domain controller to deploy and assure services rapidly throughout the IP network operations lifecycle. MCP provides the SDN foundation for advanced apps to optimize multi-layer network performance.
Adaptive IP features Adaptive IP apps for visibility, analytics, and performance management of multi-vendor IP networks. A centralized PCE provides automated path computation based on policies, enabling scalability and simplicity while supporting new use cases.
We partner with you to accelerate your network transformation while minimizing risk. Having built the largest and most complex networks in the world, our teams use advanced tools and real-world-proven best practices to work with you every step of the way.
