Working across multi-vendor domains, including Ciena’s domain controlled by Blue Planet Manage, Control and Plan (MCP), Blue Planet intelligent automation enables the delivery of a range of end-to-end services with fast time to market and exceptional performance, at reduced operational costs.

Manage, Control and Plan (MCP)

MCP is Ciena’s domain controller, unifying and automating network and service operations of Ciena’s packet and optical infrastructure across access, metro, core, and subsea domains. It eliminates manual, time-consuming, error-prone steps between multiple, legacy management systems by synchronizing operations across network protocol layers so operators can quickly plan, provision, manage, and assure end-end services deployed over Ciena packet-optical networks.
