Working with some of the world’s leading service providers and cable MSOs means we understand multi-layer networks and what it takes to master the edge. Whether you’re providing enterprise or residential services, you want to protect your network investment, and prepare your network for anything. Operators need a converged network approach to achieve these goals. Ciena’s Universal Aggregation (UA) solution enables aggregation of traffic from TDM, IP, and Ethernet services using dedicated and shared fiber on the same, cost-effective routing and switching platform.
As operators continue to evolve their networks to 5G, potential risks can emerge if they don’t address infrastructure sprawl, scale, and complexity. Operators are looking to Universal Aggregation solutions to solve their business challenges with the right speeds, feeds, and routing capabilities to support traffic from multiple service types.
Get more choice and control from your network.
Instead of building siloed, standalone architectures to support different types of services, cable operators can now bring more value to their networks by supporting concurrent PON, IP, TDM, and Ethernet services on the same Ciena aggregation platform using Universal Aggregation.
Leveraging our advanced routing and switching platforms, our converged networking approach enables the aggregation of traffic from TDM, IP, and Ethernet service using dedicated and shared fiber on the same cost-effective routing and switching platform.
We partner with you to accelerate and minimize the risk of your network transformation. Having built the largest and most complex networks in the world, our teams use advanced tools and real-world-proven best practices to work with you every step of the way.
