Accelerate the next wave of digital connectivity
Deliver more capacity per optical fiber
How do you keep up with bandwidth demands when network traffic is growing faster than the ability to acquire new fiber? How can you avoid leasing new fiber? How do you guarantee reliability and network survivability and avoid fiber or equipment failures?
We feature programmable hardware with extensive embedded monitoring points for enhanced management, analytics apps for real-time network visibility, and intuitive user interfaces with software automation to simplify operations.
You can optimize capacity and performance with innovations that give you intelligent, programmable core networks that can scale at the right cost points to drive your business forward, delivering more fiber capacity at the lowest cost per bit.
Our high-capacity switching and transport technology and services
WaveLogic Coherent Optics
Our coherent optics are deployed across our optical and routing and switching products to power 100G to 1.6 Tb/s solutions driving scalability, intelligence, and programmability.
6500 Reconfigurable Line System
A compact, simple-to-deploy, photonic layer solution that improves scalability, reduces footprint, and offers more capacity per fiber, faster.
6500 Family of Packet-Optical Platforms
Ciena’s 6500 integrates WaveLogic™ Coherent Optics, OTN switching, and intelligent photonics into a fully programmable, scalable, modular platform.
Our stackable interconnect platforms deliver more capacity and lower power for bandwidth-intensive applications, providing massive scale for cloud applications and data services.
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 ups the ante in the delivery of high-performance coherent solutions, using advanced technology and high bandwidth electro-optics with WaveLogic 6, which is expected to be the first 1.6Tbps wavelength transmitted over a single carrier.
