End-customers want more from service providers—more bandwidth, more services, more speed. To address this industry trend, service providers are scaling their networks, yet need to do so in a cost-effective and sustainable way. However, service providers are encumbered with multiple legacy network management systems (NMSs) or controllers that require manual coordination of IP and optical operational workflows, resulting in long lead times and suboptimal network designs. With Ciena’s Navigator Network Control Suite™ (Navigator NCS), providers gain a single point of control to visualize the performance of their multi-layer, multi-vendor infrastructure to simplify, optimize, and automate network operations—reducing costs, improving customer quality of experience, and supercharging the journey to the Adaptive Network.
