Ciena (NYSE:CIEN) is a networking systems, services, and software company. We provide solutions that help our customers create the Adaptive NetworkTM in response to the constantly changing demands of their end-users. By delivering best-in-class networking technology through high-touch consultative relationships, we build the world's most agile networks with automation, openness, and scale.
To address the new IP network requirements, Ciena has introduced Adaptive IP, an innovative solution that offers the essential IP capabilities required to support new applications, while allowing network providers to benefit from cloud-like scale, openness, and intelligent automation. Adaptive IP is a solution that goes beyond the individual capabilities of a network element and builds upon a combination of Ciena packet products featuring streamlined IP capabilities and Blue Planet® Route Optimization and Analysis (ROA).
Blue Planet Unified Assurance and Analytics (UAA) software suite
Blue Planet® Unified Assurance and Analytics (UAA) is an open suite of software products that leverages unified multi-layer/multi-domain assurance and AI-powered analytics to provide unprecedented insight, helping transform and simplify the provider’s business operations. As part of the Blue Planet Intelligent Automation portfolio, UAA complements Blue Planet’s automated service fulfillment capabilities by providing unified network and service assurance across the multi-vendor network. This allows operators to fulfill services rapidly and meet customer expectations in service quality throughout the entire services lifecycle. Blue Planet UAA is built to power the Adaptive Network™.
Ciena's 6500 Reconfigurable Line Systems (RLS)
Ciena’s 6500 Reconfigurable Line System (RLS) empowers network operators to
efficiently address the highest-capacity networking requirements in today’s metro
and long-haul networks, Data Center Interconnect (DCI) networks, and Distributed
Access Architecture (DAA). The 6500 RLS is an open and programmable photonic
networking platform that is simple to deploy and operate, and optimized for space-constrained, multi-vendor environments.
The launch of fiber densification initiatives, combined with the cost and power reductions now possible with next-generation coherent solutions, are expanding the DWDM requirements at the networks edge. Ciena's Coherent ELS is a high capacity, coherent-optimized , open line system (OLS) that is purpose-built to fully address next-generation edge network requirements today and moving forward. With Ciena’s Coherent ELS, network providers can cost-effectively deliver 100G to 400G coherent DWDM wavelengths to the edge, enabling a full system capacity of up to 48 channels for point to point applications or up to 42 channels for linear and hub/spoke applications.
Ciena’s Liquid Spectrum network solution changes the way
optical networks are engineered, operated, and monetized
to help operators achieve the Adaptive Network™. At its core,
Liquid Spectrum is about mining and using available system
margin, which is a changing (or ‘liquid’) variable over the life of
the network, to gain optical capacity on demand, improved reach for a specific channel, or increased service availability. It’s a solution that combines highly instrumented,
programmable hardware with advanced software applications
to help operators extract the most value from their network,
massively scale at lowest cost per bit, and fully monetize
their network resources.
Manage, Control. and Plan (MCP) domain controller
MCP, Ciena’s domain controller, unifies network management, online planning, and
service assurance in a single interface across multiple technology layers, through
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) control for integrated lifecycle operations.
With MCP’s centralized, accurate view of the state of their multi-vendor optical,
Ethernet, and IP infrastructure, service providers can fulfill and assure customer
services across multi-layer
infrastructure, and optimize
network utilization, most
efficiently. Whether through
the intuitive user interface, or
programmatic APIs, operations
teams can quickly execute all
the essential tasks that keep
the network running smoothly,
to provide high service quality.
WaveLogic 5 Extreme (WL5e)
WaveLogic 5 Extreme pushes the boundaries of what is possible in optical networking, bringing single-wavelength 800G and new levels of performance and efficiency to the industry for the first time. With programmable capacity from 200G to 800G, WaveLogic 5 Extreme provides a step-function improvement in both scale and economics, delivering 100% more capacity per wavelength and up to 30% increase in spectral efficiency compared to the previous generation. This capacity increase allows network providers to achieve 800G for shorter-reach applications, 600G for metro/regional distances, and a minimum of 400G for long-haul and uncompensated submarine applications.
WaveLogic 5 Nano (WL5n) 100G-400G pluggables
Ciena’s WaveLogic™ 5 Nano family of standards based and extended-reach 100G-400G pluggable transceivers incorporates Ciena’s advanced coherent optical Transceiver-on-Chip technology to deliver footprint-optimized 100G-400G interconnect for next-generation access, metro regional and DCI network applications. High growth in network bandwidth—along with the need for higher-capacity, low-latency connectivity at the network edge—is driving the need for the next generation of pluggable coherent transceivers offering the benefits of coherent technology and optimized for best systems performance within pluggable form factors. With industry-leading innovation, Ciena is extending the addressable applications for footprint-optimized solutions with its family of WaveLogic 5 Nano 100G-400G pluggables.
