Deliver a secure, scalable network that can converge both smart grid and broadband services
Today’s power grid is evolving rapidly, driven by climate initiatives, increased demand, and security threats.
A scalable network core
Modernize SONET technology with a highly secure, N x 100G DWDM optical transport network, which delivers a programmable infrastructure layer with both OTN and photonic control planes.
Converged OT/IT substation WAN
Leverage packet-optical technology for the substation WAN and converge low latency OT applications and high bandwidth IT smart grid traffic without compromising performance.
Meet the demand for more bandwidth at the substation network edge for broadband, smartgrid, and IoT.
Major utility taps the power of Ciena to build a better network
A major utility reduced costs, improved network security and control, delivered flexible, scalable bandwidth, and improved network visibility.
