Cloud. Virtual reality. Internet of Things. 5G. Your network transformation is underway. But it's being engineered, operated, and monetized in the same old static way. You need a smarter, faster way of keeping up with demands. But how?
Ciena's award-winning Liquid Spectrum™ combines real-time analytics and advanced automation across a programmable photonic layer to help you maximize the value of your network assets and realize the benefits of the Adaptive Network™. And now with Photonic Performance Gauge—which puts unprecedented visibility at your fingertips—you can optimize optical performance like never before.
It's optical, redefined for the on-demand world. It’s Liquid Spectrum.
See how our customers are using Liquid Spectrum to do a lot more with less—such as gaining more capacity with fewer modems, more visibility with less complexity, and more flexibility with less intervention in the network.

Liquid Spectrum leverages the rich instrumentation and in-service monitoring capabilities of WaveLogic™ Photonics, Ciena’s reconfigurable photonic layer that includes WaveLogic programmable coherent optics. The result? Actionable insights that enable providers to make intelligent decisions based on the current state of the network.
Liquid Spectrum’s advanced software applications leverage Ciena's Manage, Control and Plan SDN domain controller and open APIs to abstract complexity associated with advanced flexible technologies, enabling operators to fully operationalize and realize the benefits associated with a modernized network.
Enables you to proactively ensure optimal system performance by providing access—for the first time—to real-time, accurate planning data for both the existing hardware and new planned services.
Uses customer-defined service policies and suggests the ideal capacity, hardware configuration, and spectral placement for any channel, across any network path.
Allows you to precisely localize and address potential trouble spots, reducing the risk of outages and accelerating repair times from days to hours.
Provides instant real-time visibility into the efficiency of your network and lets you know if you can run your deployed optics at higher capacities.
Provides an instant health check of the photonic network, including optical restoration paths before photonic restoration, with unprecedented real-time visibility of photonic performance (even without active transponders).
Increases service availability with flexible adjustment of deployed coherent optical capacity as needed to route affected services across any available path in the network.
As your partner, Ciena Services ensures that you leverage Liquid Spectrum Analytics Apps to extract the full value of your network assets across any stage of the photonic network lifecycle. We augment your team with our industry-leading experts, tools, and methodologies, including powerful, role-based learning, to implement the incremental changes and improvements required to achieve your business objectives.
