One network—unlimited opportunities
Platforms that do it all: TDM, IP, Ethernet, xHaul, and PON
Legacy network architectures are static and unable to scale rapidly enough to support new high-bandwidth, low-latency services. Their multiple hardware and software deployments across complex environments increases operational cost, complexity, and troubleshooting.
Our solution aggregates traffic from TDM, IP, and Ethernet services using dedicated and shared fiber on a cost-effective routing and switching platform. We add unified network management software with automation for easy service fulfillment and assurance.
You gain unparalleled choice and control over your service offerings, increased service velocity, exceptional scalability, optimized space and energy consumption, and lower cost to enable new revenue-generating services across internet, mobile, and cloud.
Our universal aggregation technology and services
ROUTING + SWITCHING
Routing and switching platforms
Our suite of aggregation platforms include pluggable PON OLTs and ONUs, enterprise-grade desktop ONUs, weatherproof access platforms, and rack unit form factors.
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 understands the need to shift away from traditional methods of deployment and aggregation. Legacy architecture is static and inflexible and unable to scale quickly enough to support high-bandwidth, low-latency services.
