As data center and end-user applications continue to proliferate, bandwidth demand continues to multiply, resulting in significant changes to the patterns, dynamics, and scale of traffic within metro networks. The 5171 is purpose-built to provide seamless MEF-compliant along with L2 and L3 services over a carrier-class, connection-oriented infrastructure for controlled and uncontrolled environments using Ethernet, IP/MPLS, BGP, IS-IS, OSPF, Segment Routing, and Ciena’s Adaptive IPTM. It enables 100GbE service delivery or 10GbE and 25GbE service aggregation in an energy - and footprint- efficient form factor.
Compact, dense capacity
Space is increasingly limited and expensive, and network operators face substantial capital expenditures to activate new locations, or they must retire active equipment in data centers to free space for adding new services. Addressing bandwidth demand growth by deploying more and larger equipment is simply not a sustainable business model. The use of modern, hardened, lower-power coherent packet-optical technologies eliminates the cost and complexity of deploying separate packet and optical devices. The sleek, shallow depth, front access, and extended temperature range make the 5171 perfect for uncontrolled environments for outdoor aggregation of 1/10/25/100 GbE and 10G PON, enabling high capacity at the outdoor edge.
Service velocity has become a critical competitive advantage for network operators. In many cases, service velocity is the determining factor in winning new service sales or maintaining existing revenue(s). The 5171 implements Ciena’s unique ZTP capabilities, allowing network operators to rapidly deploy new packet-based services in a completely safe and secure automated manner. With no human intervention required, manual provisioning errors are eliminated, and costly truck rolls can be avoided. Most importantly, ZTP improves service deployment velocity and significant competitive advantage.
