What are MCP Services?

There’s a superhero in town helping you rapidly integrate Ciena’s Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) Applications into your network operations. MCP Services can deliver the super powers your team needs.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Ciena Services! That’s right. Ciena Services has super powers—the kind that make a difference in your day-to-day professional life.

Meet one of the members of the Ciena Services superhero team: MCP Services. If your organization is deploying Ciena’s MCP domain controller and associated MCP Advanced Apps to help simplify and automate your network operations, MCP Services can help you, your team, and your business in ways that are as impressive as leaping tall buildings in a single bound—without the risk.

See what’s possible with MCP.

MCP Services. Your superhero—every day.

Not all superheroes require an iconic costume, a logo, or a bite by a radioactive spider. Heroes come in many forms and appear at the right time—in the right way—to save the day. It’s this combination of perfect timing with just the right solution that makes MCP Services the superhero your network needs.

In an age where time is the most valuable commodity, MCP Services deliver a single point of service management that enables you to rapidly incorporate MCP Applications into your operational environment, bridge gaps, and enjoy peace of mind—while maintaining focus on your core competencies.

SHAZAM! Ciena’s MCP Services!

Let Ciena’s MCP Services team swoop in with extensive expertise, tools, and solutions―including Learn, Deploy, Migrate, Customize, Adopt, and Operate offerings―that accelerate your path to success with MCP Applications. Our MCP Services experts can also extend in-house capabilities for skills and staff that are not in place and collaborate to help drive operational and business results. 

Cue the rooftop spotlight on MCP Services and three of its many abilities that will help you prevail:

1. Elasticity: It can stretch, expand, or contract to suit any situation. The MCP Services suite is flexible—it gives you choice. This means you can select the best combination of offerings—in full or in part—to support your transformation, without adding the extra capital or operational expenses normally associated with managing this type of activity in-house.

2. Enhanced technological intelligence: MCP Services is comprised of industry-proven methodologies and unique Ciena expertise, processes, and best practices. Plus, our team of knowledgeable engineers and technical and business professionals has an extensive mix of backgrounds and many years of combined experience working on a variety of technologies—from TL1 to SNMP and open APIs. There is also an advisory service to help you gain full advantage of new advanced analytics. All this combined offers a significantly complete and deeply robust network solution, making us the partner you can hold accountable.

3. Speed: You want and need to be effective with your network investments. Consider it done with MCP Services. Our highly scalable resources combined with a blend of people, processes, and tools augment the already-heroic efforts of MCP Applications and help get the job done right the first time—as soon as possible, without sacrificing quality or going over budget. An accelerated and successful deployment (or migration) ensures a higher return on investment, a speedier path to achieving business objectives, and a competitive edge.
