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.

Features and benefits

  1. Temperature-hardened (-40°C to +65°C) for temperature-challenged or space-constrained locations

  2. Two flexible 800 Gb/s slots provide maximum port speeds and capacities at 40G, 100G, 200G, and 400G

  3. 4 x 1/10/25GbE, 22 x 100GbE fixed ports

  4. IP routing, BGP-LU, SR-MPLS, Carrier Ethernet, and SRv6Hardware-assisted routing and switching OAM scaled to deliver 100GbE services with guaranteed SLA differentiation

  5. SZTP for rapid, secure, and error-free turn-up of services

Why 8110?

Ciena’s 8110 is a temperature-hardened 2.4 Tbps switching system with the right port flexibility, density, and scalability balance for today’s aggregation demands, with ample room to grow. This is complemented by support for high-power ZR and ZR+ coherent optics, allowing easy Coherent Routing growth.

Field Replace Unit (FRU) Modules

Extend system lifetime, accommodate bandwidth growth and greater security with flexible port options within the same chassis.
