Ciena’s 8110 Coherent Aggregation Router is purpose-built for 100GbE services and aggregation. With dense 100GbE to 400GbE aggregation, support for 1/10/25GbE, and with the option of WaveLogic™ 5 Nano (WL5n), the 8110 addresses the increasing need for high capacity routing and switching applications.
Edge dynamics are driving bandwidth demand at unprecedented rates. These dynamics include annual growth by 5G Radio Access Network (RAN), even higher speed broadband, and enterprise requirements for cloud service growing at twice the rate of the others. As network operators get closer to their customers, the mix of connections and services—from 1GbE to 100GbE and 1/10/25GbE to 100GbE— are creating the need for 100GbE service delivery and aggregation to 400GbE. The 8110’s high-density 400G ports can provide significant savings in power, cooling, and transport costs. Video content and streaming giants have pushed cloud content closer to the customer, increasing the need for peering at the edge. With Adaptive IP™, network operators can easily terminate Provider Edge (PE) or route peer Provider (P) traffic for Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) and cloud providers on the 8110.
Edge content delivery
Video and cloud have pushed content closer to the customer, increasing the need for deeper peering while reducing the reliance on core 'Tier 1' interconnection markets. The 8110's deep packet buffers, large routing tables, and Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) version 3 capabilities enable localized peering at the metro and cloud on-ramp locations while improving the Quality of Experience (QoE) for users by reducing the latency to application sources.
