Ciena’s Service-Aware Operating System (SAOS) is employed in our Routing and Switching and Converged Packet Optical platforms to provide a common set of advanced Ethernet features, improving operational efficiency from edge to core with consistent system and service attributes. Our system incorporates a complete Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) suite to support the network and service performance monitoring requirements of large-scale Ethernet deployments, while reducing network operating costs. It also enables network operators to create and manage scalable service offerings that leverage the cost-effectiveness of Ethernet technology—generating maximum revenue.Download data sheet
These cost-effective and compact platforms are available with a range of physical ports of up to 10GbE. They’re purpose-built to fit numerous small, medium, and large customer sites as well as multi-tenant office and residential buildings, supporting TDM, Ethernet, MPLS, IP, and virtual network services. Mounting options include rack, wall, pole or strand, with appropriate enclosures and temperature ranges to solve your unique challenges.
These platforms provide efficient aggregation to cost-effectively fill higher capacity links within both the metro access and aggregation tiers. With Ethernet, MPLS, IP, and Segment Routing capabilities, they simplify network evolution and support new and emerging services. In addition, the 5000 family along offers state-of-the-art OAM and QoS capabilities, which eliminate significant operational complexity and cost and can be deployed in a wide variety of locations.
Ciena’s 6500 PTS addresses the growing need to maintain the profitable delivery of legacy TDM services while future-proofing investments toward network modernization.
To this day, network providers continue to add to their Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) infrastructure—an investment that is getting more expensive to run and operate. Clearly doing more of the same only increases operational expenses due to expensive spares and higher maintenance, hard-to-find legacy skill sets, and manual operations.View more
Ciena’s 8180 combines industry-leading capacity and embedded intelligence of WaveLogicTM coherent optics with the density, openness, and programmability of a spine switch. As part of an end-to-end solution that peers with both packet switch devices and coherent networking platforms, it provides a high-density on-ramp to the coherent optical network.View more
The Waveserver® family of stackable interconnect platforms delivers more capacity and lower power for high-performance Data Center Interconnect (DCI), with massive scale to meet the bandwidth needs of the most demanding cloud applications and data services.
The 6500 converges packet, OTN, and flexible WaveLogic Photonics in a single platform to streamline operations and optimize footprint, power, and capacity. And, with off-board software tools you can automate services from creation through orchestration and delivery, boosting differentiation—and your bottom line.View more
The 5400 Family offers multi-terabit packet-optical switching platforms that transform networks into scalable, flexible, cost-reduced, service-enabling infrastructures to meet today's monumental traffic growth challenges.View more
The Z-Series, Z22, Z33, and Z77, provide carrier-grade capabilities such as QoS, scalability, reliability, and service management. They also leverage Ciena’s Planet Operate software to provide simplified multilayer network operations, management, and service provisioning.View more
Ciena’s 8700—a multi-terabit programmable Ethernet-over-DWDM packet switch—addresses the growing need to efficiently aggregate and switch large quantities of packet traffic while guaranteeing stringent Service Level Agreements (SLAs). It revolutionizes the capital and operational economics of 10GbE and 100GbE services in metro and regional Ethernet networks.View more
Ciena’s family of pluggable transceivers allow for a flexible, pay-as-you-grow deployment model when adding specific functions to products within our Routing and Switching platforms. For example, WaveLogic 5 Nano 100G/200G CFP2-DCO pluggable optics enable a highly flexible coherent transmission in a compact, pluggable form.
Traditional TDM services can be mapped onto a packet-based infrastructure, benefiting from its low cost-point while still maintaining the stringent timing and resilience required by the service. The end result? New and renewed revenue streams.
Ciena’s Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) is purpose-built for the Distributed NFV (D-NFV) use case. Now service providers can rapidly capture new revenue by rolling out virtualized network services to enterprises at the speed of cloud. It includes software-based routing, SD-WAN, encryption, virtual edge, WAN optimization, and more. Deploy a complete D-NFV solution in an instant. Leverage openness. Discover best-of-breed. Explore an open ecosystem to deliver D-NFV services.View more
