The power behind 800G with WaveLogic 5 Extreme revealed in these 3 videos
The past year has made internet connectivity even more important for users as we have all embraced remote everything - including working, learning and medicine. In a report from Statista, 17% of U.S. employees worked from home 5 days a week or more before the pandemic. Since then, this has more than doubled to 44%. As you can imagine, and may have experienced, this places more pressure on the network, which can sometimes impact performance.
To deliver the best experience for users, network operators are looking for ways to offer reliable high capacity connectivity while reducing their footprint, power and transport costs. This is where Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Extreme (WL5e) 800G coherent solution comes in. We launched WL5e about a year ago and have seen record customer adoption. In fact, after 12 months of commercial availability, we secured 90 customers and shipped 10,000 coherent modems – the fastest we have seen customers adopt new coherent technology.
To understand more about how this solution provides industry-leading performance, check out these three videos featuring our industry experts:
- Chalk Talk - WaveLogic 5 Extreme – The Network Efficiency Story – Watch this interactive video by Helen Xenos, Sr. Director Portfolio Marketing, as she explains in simple terms how Ciena’s WL5e redefines what’s possible in optical transport.
- Chalk Talk - Nonlinear Probabilistic Constellation Shaping (PCS) in WaveLogic 5 Extreme - Kim Roberts, VP of WaveLogic Science, provides insight into Ciena’s unique implementation of nonlinear Probabilistic Constellation Shaping (PCS) algorithms in the coherent DSP. Nonlinear PCS is one of the key enablers of industry-leading system performance of Ciena’s WL5e.
- Chalk Talk - Throughput-optimized FEC in WaveLogic 5 Extreme - Maurice O'Sullivan, Sr. Director of WaveLogic Science, explains Ciena’s unique implementation of throughput-optimized FEC, another WL5e DSP innovation, that contributes to industry-leading system performance.
