Customers are evolving. It’s time to evolve your network to align to changing customer needs.
What does the network of the future really look like? It’s time to find out…
Let’s face it. Legacy network designs are inefficient and inflexible. This makes launching new services and cost optimization more difficult as you increase scale and complexity to meet growing customer demands.
The networks of the future will help overcome the entire gamut of legacy network challenges. The question is—what exactly does a future-ready network look like?
At Ciena, we think there are five key requirements for truly future-ready networking. They can all be delivered today with the right network technologies and skillsets.
Reduce network footprint. Lower operating costs. Create a simpler network architecture. Make the network easier to deploy, manage, and monitor.
Traditional telecom Service Providers (SPs) continue to face an increasing profitability challenge, as they tackle the deluge of on-demand content consumed by both businesses and consumers alike while trying to maintain a superior customer experience. Coupled with the emergence of IoT and the expected bandwidth-intensive and latency-sensitive applications, such as self-driving vehicles or virtual/augmented reality applications, it’s recognized that SPs need to rethink previously tried-and-true methods to architect their networks. There’s much they can learn from how data centres are built and operated today.
Expanding existing legacy networks to meet increasing demands isn’t sustainable.
It’s time to disrupt the status quo in order to deliver the next generation of bandwidth-hungry services.
Converged IP and Ethernet aggregation networks evolve the IP layer and leverage the advantages of high-bandwidth, flexible Ethernet. Converging disaggregated IP and Ethernet allows the network to scale quickly—on-demand—to support constantly growing traffic volumes.
IP and Ethernet aggregation is a converged networking approach that enables the aggregation of traffic from common Ethernet (Layer 2) and IP (Layer 3) services on the same, cost-efficient network architecture.
Rapid adoption of cloud services, video streaming, 4G and 5G wireless backhaul, and a range of other high-bandwidth applications and use cases are putting unprecedented pressure on carriers’ networks. But it is not just the sheer volume of
This paper explains how operators can replace aging SDH and Ethernet networks with Ciena’s latest-generation IP and Ethernet aggregation solutions to take future traffic growth in stride, reduce operating costs, and bring new, revenue-generating
IP technology is the industry choice for emerging applications such as 5G, but the way IP protocols are delivered must evolve due to new and emerging use cases. Learn more about Ciena’s recently introduced Adaptive IP, and how it is providing the
Getting bandwidth where it is needed is increasingly critical to today's cloud-centric business model. And we have solutions for that.
Evolutionize Your Packet Network from Access to Metro offers a practical overview on how network operators can modernize support for legacy TDM services while addressing current and emerging packet-based business opportunities—all in a simpler,
The Adaptive Network is a new approach that expands on autonomous networking concepts to transform the static network into a dynamic, programmable environment driven by analytics and intelligence.
