Traffic generated at the network edge is growing exponentially, fueled by gigabit services such as FTTH, 5G, and enterprise business services.
Delivering these high-bandwidth services and use cases presents major new commercial opportunities for operators—but only if you can scale your aggregation network rapidly and cost-effectively.
Aggregation of edge traffic is typically handled with either Ethernet switching or IP routing technologies.
The challenge for operators is that both of these aggregation approaches have strengths and weaknesses relating to their innate capabilities and characteristics:
To address the challenges of aggregation in the super-high-bandwidth era, Ciena has created converged routing and switching aggregation solutions. These incorporate both Ethernet transport protocols and lean IP protocols needed to support the full range of Layer 3 services—allowing you to deliver traffic from all kinds of services seamlessly back into your IP/MPLS core.
With our converged routing and switching aggregation solutions, you get unique capabilities and features that allow you to scale aggregation on demand and reduce infrastructure footprint and costs.
Four reasons for partnering with Ciena for aggregation:
Our network devices scale seamlessly from 1G to 10G, 25G, 100G and beyond (up to 400G)—allowing you to keep pace with rapid growth in traffic demands.
Our solutions give you a single, compact, energy efficient device architecture to deliver traffic from Layer 2 and Layer 3 services back into your IP/MPLS core.
Our pre-configured, application-specific devices and Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) capabilities help you minimize deployment times and costs, with no need for costly truck rolls.
Our equipment leads the industry in terms of reliability metrics, ensuring that your aggregation network is constantly available to support revenue-generating services.
Ciena routing and switching solutions combine unique capabilities and features that help you create a winning business services proposition.
Boost the efficiency and scalability of your network operation with our solutions for traffic aggregation and transport into the MPLS core.
