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.
Industry conferences, news websites, panel discussions, and message boards add tremendous noise to what is really the critical issue: what does the customer think? The IHS annual optical leadership survey is an attempt to quantify the opinions of
The Adaptive Network™ and next-generation technologies to be showcased at booth and speaking sessions
Joe Shapiro, Senior Director, Product Line Management, explains how Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Extreme provides tunable bandwidth from 200G-800G so network providers can maximize capacity, automate, and evolve to 400G-interface switches and routers
With programmable capacity from 200G to 800G, Ciena's WaveLogic 5 Extreme brings new levels of scale, programmability, and economics to optical networking and the ability, for the first time, to evolve to simple, ubiquitous 400GbE client connect
Ciena's WaveLogic 5 Nano pluggables bring the strength of coherent optics into compact, low-power form-factor solutions that deliver the capability needed across multiple new applications. The high-bandwidth connectivity to end-users and devices
Smaller footprint. Reduced power consumption. More high-capacity connectivity. With WaveLogic 5 Nano footprint-optimized 100G-400G solutions, network providers can enable new and innovative networking applications to drive a better end-user
More capacity per wavelength. Longer reach at any capacity. And lower cost per bit. With these benefits, Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Extreme helps network providers modernize their networks to maintain the rapid innovation that delivers the services and
Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Nano 100G/200G CFP2-DCO is a dual-rate, single carrier, C-band coherent transceiver capable of transmitting and receiving up to 2x100 Gb/s of client payload on a single wavelength.
Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai 5x7 Multi-rate/400G Single-channel Module is a 5”x7” high-performance coherent transceiver capable of transmitting and receiving up to 4x100 Gb/s of client payload.
Over the past decade, network providers have been using coherent technology to increase traffic-carrying capacity by orders of magnitude over existing fiber assets. The migration to the cloud, the popularity of OTT content, 5G, and an increasing
Aimed predominantly at short-reach, single-span fiber optic links for Data Center Interconnect (DCI), 400ZR is an interoperable networking Implementation Agreement (IA) in progress by the OIF. It defines a footprint-optimized solution for
Optical networks continue to evolve with greater performance and flexibility based on a foundation of CMOS chip designs as the latest designs are heading to market in 2019. The next-generation of coherent chip designs will segment into two different
As Colorless-Directionless-Contentionless (CDC) with flexible grid (CDC-F) is becoming a reality for some network operators do you really know what they mean, why they are being adopted and what benefits they provide? Ciena’s Paulina Gomez explains.
Increasingly, forward-looking carriers are looking to white label services to reduce their time to market and launch costs for new services. White label refers to a service that is bought by an operator from a third-party provider and sold to
