Coherent ELS boxes

Coherent ELS

Ciena’s Coherent ELS is a coherent-optimized Open Line System (OLS) designed to meet next-generation photonic requirements at the network edge. ELS cost-effectively delivers 100G to 800G coherent DWDM, enabling a full system capacity of up to 28.8 Tb/s, with a minimal footprint and unprecedented operational simplicity.

Features and benefits

  1. Coherent-optimized OLS

    Delivers 100G to 800G coherent DWDM to the edge in a compact, hardened form factor across flexible configurations, including 400ZR and 400ZR+ applications.
  2. Fast high-scale deployments

    Eases deployments with a stackable plug-and-play design, automatic turn-up, and Low Touch Provisioning (LTP) along with flexible AC or DC powering to address specific site requirements.
  3. ROADM-like operational simplicity

    Provides integrated system intelligence and automation for faster service turn-up, troubleshooting, and real-time system optimization with a range of easy-to-manage options.
