Intelligent Automation of Cloud Connect Services

Service providers and data center operators can now rapidly deploy and fully operationalize Ciena Blue Planet's Cloud Connect automation solution, which combines the Blue Planet Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO) software with professional services provided by Ciena or a solution partner. Blue Planet MDSO software is a multi-vendor solution that is based on an open and highly programmable architecture to automate operations across multiple domains within single or multiple MTDCs. It abstracts the complexity of all network layers and domains, and presents a unified interface for simplified control, visibility and management of end-to-end cloud connectivity.

What is the Adaptive Network?

The Adaptive Network is a new approach that expands on autonomous networking concepts to transform the static network into a dynamic, programmable environment driven by analytics and intelligence.
