Our solution grows organically from existing networks, enabling dynamic scalability and network expansion while simplifying network architecture, and satisfying user bandwidth needs.
Our coherent routing technology and services
ROUTING + SWITCHING
We offer a full suite of next-gen coherent routers for network access, aggregation, and metro powered by a modern service-aware operating system (SAOS).
Ciena’s Coherent ELS is a coherent-optimized open line system (OLS) designed to meet next-generation photonic requirements at the network edge.
WaveLogic 5 Nano
WaveLogic™ 5 Nano reduces power consumption and adds high-capacity connectivity while addressing sustainable network evolution with use-case optimized pluggable optics.
This fully instrumented photonic system on the 6500 Packet-Optical Platform enables operators to make intelligent decisions based on the current state of the network.
Manage, Control and Plan (MCP)
Our MCP Applications provide analytics, software control, and automation—integrated in a single interface—to optimize multi-layer network resiliency and performance.
