Z-Series

Z-Series

The Z-Series—Z22, Z33, and Z77—provides carrier-grade capabilities such as QoS, scalability, reliability, and service management. They also leverage Ciena’s Blue Planet Operate software to provide simplified multilayer network operations, management, and service provisioning.

Scale with no restrictions

Optimized for high-capacity aggregation and metro/regional core network deployments, the Z77 Packet-Optical Platform offers high service density and capacity benefits, scaling to 2.8 Tb/s in a compact 13RU form factor. Additional fiber efficiencies can be achieved via an optional central fabric, all with no sacrifice to service density.

All about flexibility

The mid-sized, environmentally hardened Z33 Packet-Optical Platform balances flexibility with low cost to efficiently scale network capacity at the edge, with the ability to extend service delivery into outside plant cabinets. High- density interfaces support any service mix, providing incredible scale to 800 Gb/s in a compact 5RU form factor.

Compact and powerful

At just 2RU in height, the Z22 Packet-Optical Platform is compact, environmentally hardened, and optimized for deployments at the network edge. With support for up to 400 Gb/s of packet services per shelf, the Z22 high-density platform provides space and power benefits for a wide range of applications, including low-latency business Ethernet services and remote cabinet deployments for high-capacity Ethernet backhaul.
