Information. It’s the lifeblood of your business. The need to move it freely and securely across the network is exploding. And, while being easily accessible, it must be stored and protected, too. Data Center Interconnect (DCI) plays a critical role in meeting the explosion of data and non-stop demand for cloud-based services.
Did you know there are over 7,500 data centers across the globe?
Chances are your business owns or connects to more than one of them. Staying ahead of today’s demands requires sophisticated technologies that provide scalable, reliable, and high-performance interconnectivity.
High Speed Connectivity to connect to content faster, across the street, in the same metro region, or across the continent
Rapid Scalability to fit your business needs, from just starting out to reaching billions of users; and using public, private, or hybrid cloud
Easy management and automation tools that simplify your life and reduce management overhead
Forrester Research predicts the public cloud market to reach $191 billion by 2020. Cloud services enable convenient, secure and on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. However, from software testing and customer relationship management to virtual machine migrations, those mission-critical cloud applications will dictate how networks are built.
Ciena will continue to address emerging DCI needs through innovative solutions and technological advances.
According to Ovum, there are more than 7,500 data centers worldwide. The top 20 global cities have more than 2,200 data centers, some containing more than 100 facilities within their metropolitan boundaries alone. These data centers are the heart of our digital economy, and their interconnectivity is the key to application performance.
As the world leader in DCI, we’re constantly pushing the performance frontier to bring you the best products that help you to connect at high speeds, grow fast at scale, and manage with ease.
By deploying Ciena’s Adaptive Network infrastructure to connect data centres, Internet Content Providers (ICPs) can scale connections on demand, minimise ‘per-bit’ transport costs, and gain new competitive advantage based on unrivalled Quality of

Research from Telindus and Ciena shows that more than half of organizations could be vulnerable to data breaches and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) non-compliance risks. The question for organizations is whether their WAN security meets
New technologies and capabilities, driven by data center interconnect (DCI) applications and capacity growth, are now available. Here are five new innovations to support growing DCI demands, and how industry analysts see the DCI market taking shape.
Rolling out a comprehensive security plan can be challenging—especially when considering application-to-application communications between data centers. Organizations often look to the network infrastructure to provide a means to secure data passing
One way to avoid network bottlenecks, maximize performance, and deliver the best QoS, is to build new micro data centres that bring network-edge equipment and connections closer to your customers, says Mervyn Kelly, Ciena’s EMEA Marketing Director.
