We know you need choices for your network. Sometimes, it’s getting maximum performance from your optics. Other times, it’s the smallest footprint that gets the job done.
With WaveLogic™ 5, you can have both: Two distinct advanced technology designs to address all applications, without compromise.
To learn how WaveLogic 5 coherent optical technology redefines what’s possible, visit our blog. Listen to Ciena’s Scott McFeely, SVP Global Products & Services, and Dino DiPerna, VP Packet Optical Platforms R&D, share how WaveLogic 5 transforms network performance to bring new applications to life.
When you have high-bandwidth 100GbE and 400GbE connectivity requirements or are looking to maximize fiber capacity and networking efficiencies.
Offering higher capacity per wavelength, and extending to longer reaches without regeneration, WaveLogic 5 Extreme dramatically reduces cost per bit with fewer wavelengths to deploy and manage. Embedded real-time network monitoring with programmability from 200 Gb/s to 800 Gb/s line rates lays the foundation for a network that can rapidly adjust to unpredictable traffic demands and dynamically optimize capacity across any path.
When you want to extend the capacity and optical-layer simplification benefits of coherent technology to access applications, or when reduced power/area and line interoperability requirements are more important than spectral efficiency.
The WaveLogic 5 Nano family of coherent pluggable optics packs the application-specific functions you need in reduced power/area form factors such as QSFP-DD and CFP2-DCO. And they can be deployed with any of transport, switch, or router platform to meet your operational requirements.
