Seamless connectivity across data centers
High-performance, scalable, and reliable metro DCI
As data-center capacity scales to meet growing demands for storage and compute, metro data-center architectures are becoming more distributed. The result? A greater need for single-span, high-capacity optical connectivity.
Ciena’s metro DCI offers you leading coherent optics and photonics. It features the lowest power 400ZR and highly automated, scalable transport and line systems.
Scale up with high-performance coherent optical interfaces or pay as you grow with power-efficient, footprint-optimized coherent pluggables. We offer the highest capacity connectivity at the lowest power and smallest footprint.
Our metro DCI technology and services
WaveLogic 5 Nano pluggables
Increase bandwidth between data centers or migrate your metro-regional network to a converged IP/Optical infrastructure with WaveLogic™ 5 Nano pluggables.
Our stackable interconnect platforms deliver more capacity and lower power for bandwidth-intensive applications, providing massive scale for cloud applications and data services.
6500 Reconfigurable Line System
A compact, simple-to-deploy, photonic layer solution that improves scalability, reduces footprint, and offers more capacity per fiber, faster.
A coherent-optimized open-line system designed to deliver 100G to 800G coherent DWDM to the network edge, with a minimal footprint and unprecedented operational simplicity.
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.
