Build networks for life
Sustainable connection without compromise
Residential networks must meet surging customer demand, enable the next wave of applications, and bridge the digital divide.
Ciena leverages a rich hardware, software, and services ecosystem that is open, modular, and scalable.
You can optimize network costs, maintain a competitive edge, and deliver long-term sustainability.
Fiber Broadband Association awards
In 2023 we won the Community Impact Award for demonstrating how network operators can leverage disaggregation and virtualization to push network access closer to the user and thus deliver and scale capacity where needed. Previously in 2022, we won the Game Changer Award for demonstrating how a city can implement a next-generation broadband network using an open, optimized, and highly scalable cloud-based solution.
