World-class connections across the miles
Industry-leading speed, security, and capacity with unmatched success
The strain put on networks is increasing—particularly on routes to, from, and between data centers—as opportunities to grow new revenue streams arise. The challenge is how to seize these new opportunities with limited budgets and fewer resources.
Ciena combines highly scalable, programmable infrastructure with intelligent software and automation to create a dynamic pool of resources for on-demand cloud and DCI applications. Our DCI solutions leverage field-proven coherent optical technologies to carry mission-critical traffic.
Discover unparalleled efficiency in network scalability, operations, and power usage. Integrate with existing assets to evolve your network cost-effectively. Deploy reliable, cutting-edge levels of capacity that bring your customers the satisfaction they demand.
Our global DCI technology and services
Our stackable interconnect platforms deliver more capacity and lower power for bandwidth-intensive applications, providing massive scale for cloud applications and data services.
Providing ubiquitous 400G/800G connectivity and 1.6Tb/s networking, WaveLogic™ 6 provides the next leap forward in network scale, economics, and power efficiencies.
6500 Reconfigurable Line System
Designed for scalability and automated deployments, Ciena’s RLS fuels all DCI, from simple point-to-point metro DCI to highly scalable C+L-band to submarine.
Blue Planet® Orchestration
Our software suite offers end-to-end, next-generation, network operations to keep pace with evolving service offerings. Streamline your entire service delivery lifecycle.
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.
Ciena’s DCI solution allows us to scale many wavelengths on a single fibre pair. That means we can stay ahead of client’s interconnection needs for years to come and manage our fibre capacity efficiently.
