Metro. Long haul. Subsea. There’s no selectivity when it comes to the crush of bandwidth demands. All are experiencing unprecedented growth with no signs of slowing. And all need to deliver a consistent quality end-user experience in the face of on-demand content consumption, no matter where the actual content resides. Keeping up can put a strain on business.
The ability to scale and secure network capacity faster and smarter is a huge competitive advantage, and the technologies that enable this scalability and service agility are constantly evolving. At the foundation of it all is the optical network. Implementing the right solution—one that can scale for massive capacity growth while flexibly adapting to changes in applications running on top of it— is vital for success.
Deliver services faster using control plane automation via a single flexible platform across metro, long-haul, and subsea applications
Maximize capacity and operational efficiencies using tunable variable-capacity optics and multi-Terabit service densities with the world’s #1 packet-optical platform
Innovate faster with a flexible architecture that best matches your operational model, whether deploying a fully integrated packet-optical platform or modular networking building blocks managed via open APIs
As optical networks become increasingly flexible and software-driven, network operators need to rethink past assumptions as they plan and deploy networks moving forward. With the appropriate software tools to fully exploit the benefits of flexible coherent modems, programmable photonics and flexible grid systems, the redefined optical network can enable further improvements in service rollout velocity and expand revenue opportunities.
The optical industry is focused on making the optical network more agile, intelligent, and application-aware. Giving service providers the tools to reliably shift their operating model from ‘configuring’ to ‘programming’ brings a radical transformative opportunity with unparalleled intelligence and service agility.
