If you’re a network operator trying to manage bandwidth-intensive applications—like connecting data centers, modernizing MSO access networks, or building out 4G/5G wireless infrastructures—your network must be ready to adapt to changes. You need to get more out of your photonic line system. More scale. More density. More programmability. All while taking up less space.
The 6500 Reconfigurable Line System (RLS) is a compact, simple-to-deploy, photonic layer solution that improves scalability, reduces footprint, and offers more flexibility and programmability. It provides highly dense ROADM and amplifier configurations so you can quickly react to unpredictable traffic requirements by scaling nodal connectivity and wavelength add/drop capacity. And with the 6500 RLS, increasing fiber capacity with the L-band is just as easy as lighting the C-band—you get double the capacity with no surprises and no impact to existing C-band traffic.
Efficiently scales to meet the highest capacity network requirements with an optimized ultra-dense design
Reduces footprint by as much as 70 percent, compared to traditional chassis-based systems, with its modular and compact form factor
Eases deployment and operations with Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP), network auto-discovery, and full network visibility for simplified troubleshooting
Provides openness and programmability with a full suite of open APIs and a microservices-based software architecture
Unlocks double the fiber capacity with optimized C&L-band architecture
With Ciena’s integrated C&L-band solution, adding wavelengths to the L-band is just as easy as lighting the C-band. You get double the capacity, with no headaches. No complex re-engineering or re-balancing of the line system. And most importantly, no impact to existing C-band channels.

The 6500 RLS is part of Ciena’s WaveLogic Photonics solution of flexible, intelligent photonic line system elements that combine with embedded and discrete software tools for superior optical network automation, control, and visibility.
The 6500 RLS provides the scalability benefits of an ultra-dense photonic line system combined with the programmability that’s needed to achieve Ciena’s Adaptive Network vision. The Adaptive Network is set up to self-configure and self-optimize by constantly assessing network pressures and demands. It’s built on a unique combination of Programmable Infrastructure, Software Control and Automation, and Analytics and Intelligece—guided by intent-based policies. With the pace of growth in capacity, devices, and mobility, your network must adapt to survive.
