Evolutionize your networks, from access to metro

We all know our networks need to evolve, but evolution takes millions of years. With customer demands shifting faster than you can spell extinction, can you afford to wait?

The way we see it, you have two choices: grow your network capabilities or become increasingly obsolete. It’s time to evolutionize—because the future belongs to the adaptive.

Whether you’re supporting legacy, modern, or emerging business opportunities such as 5G, Business Services, Cloud, Edge Computing, and Fiber Deep, you need a scalable network that can adapt to drive your business forward.

The Big 3

No. 1

Transform your network to better compete against traditional and non-traditional competitors while lowering ongoing total cost of network ownership to protect your margins

No. 2

Successfully target 4G to 5G evolution, Business Services, Cloud, Edge Computing, and Fiber Deep opportunities from access to metro networks via simpler, cost-effective, purpose-built solutions

No. 3

Implement the Adaptive Network™ to future-proof businesses via greater automation, intent-based control, self-optimization, and programable infrastructure to capitalize on new business opportunities

What’s next

As the market for high-bandwidth and high-performance services evolves, network operators require flexible and agile infrastructure deployment to maintain pace with dynamic network conditions and varying customer requirements. Evolutionizing transport infrastructure, as well as implementing a different way to deliver standards-based IP connectivity from access to metro, is critical to building a modern network that can adapt—one that leverages automation, intent-based control, self-optimization, and programmable infrastructure to successfully drive your business into the future.

Industry insights

Many industry verticals are experiencing unprecedented bandwidth growth, and a dramatic shift in user traffic patterns—thanks to the ever-expanding use of cloud-based applications, Business Services, Ultra High-Definition Video streaming, IoT, Edge Computing, and migration from 4G to 5G.

This growth, plus the continued transition to the cloud, means that connectivity services are even more vital to business differentiation and survival than they’ve ever been before.

Traditional approaches struggle to deliver the performance levels and required cost-points. Network operators simply can’t address ongoing growth while targeting emerging business opportunities, like 5G, Cloud, Edge Compute, and Fiber Deep, without building a network that can adapt. Evolutionizing is the only way forward.

Ciena Insights

It’s time to take control of your own destiny—it’s time to evolutionize.

To remain competitive and grow your business, you must address lucrative business opportunities like 5G, Business Services, Cloud, Edge Compute, and Fiber Deep. And that’s impossible without shifting toward a more scalable, less operationally complex network from access to metro—one that lays the foundation for the Adaptive Network.

You asked us for a better way to deliver IP differently. And we did. We call it Adaptive IP.

Our new Adaptive IPTM solution, coupled with WaveLogicTM coherent optics, enables a lean, purpose-built  network, from access to metro. That means you can seamlessly evolve from a legacy, overcomplex IP implementation, to agile and cost-effective infrastructure by leveraging machine learning-based automation and analytics powered by real time-telemetry to deal with the ever-increasing demand for more capacity, performance, and on-demand services.
