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.
Architected for high-capacity applications, Ciena’s 6500-D14/S14 configurations converge comprehensive Ethernet, TDM, and WDM capabilities with unconstrained hybrid packet/OTN switching and an intelligent control plane to maximize the
Joe Shapiro, Sr. Director Product Line Management, describes how the role of coherent technology is evolving across networks, and provides insights into Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Nano footprint-optimized 100G-400G solutions.
Optimized for best-in-class 100G service density and low power consumption, Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai MOTRs are optical transponder and service channel interfaces that enable a more programmable infrastructure.
Networks are experiencing explosive bandwidth growth, and technology service providers are the first to face its impact. From the access to the core, pressure for increasing capacity is unprecedented, stressing existing infrastructure and CAPEX
Network providers are looking for new alternatives to unlock additional network capacity. Ciena’s Kent Jordan explains how upgrading to the L-band can help – if done in the right way.
The annual optical leadership survey from IHS Markit has been released – with the results not only naming Ciena the Top Optical Transmission and Switching Equipment Vendor, but also the leader in key emerging areas like DCI, optical disaggregation
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
At OFC 2019 Ciena’s Kim Roberts was presented with the John Tyndall Award. In an article from Gazettabyte, Roy Rubenstein takes an in-depth look at the career and talents of this networking industry pioneer.
The Adaptive Network™ and next-generation technologies to be showcased at booth and speaking sessions
In today’s content economy, end-customers are demanding more from their network providers – more content, more video, more devices – and the list goes on. As a result, providers need more from their underlying optical networks. Ciena’s Scott
