Packet Products

Simplify service deployment. Assure performance. Decrease your time to revenue. As this new networking world evolves around us, customers still demand best-in-class service delivery and service aggregation. With Ciena’s packet-based products, you can deliver and then some. Ciena’s broad product line — from edge to core aggregation with a common Service-Aware Operating System (SAOS) — can accelerate your ability to differentiate and compete.


Ciena’s 8700 Packetwave Platform — a multi-terabit programmable Ethernet-over-DWDM packet switch — addresses the growing need to efficiently aggregate and switch large quantities of packet traffic while guaranteeing stringent Service Level Agreements (SLAs), and revolutionizes the capital and operational economics of 10GbE and 100GbE services in metro and regional ethernet networks.

3000 Family Service Delivery Switches

These cost-effective and efficient service delivery switches are available with a range of physical ports of up to 10GbE. They’re purpose-built to fit numerous small, medium and large customer sites as well as multi-tenant office and residential buildings. Mounting options include rack, wall, pole or strand, with appropriate enclosures and temperature ranges to solve your unique challenges.

5000 Family Service Aggregation Switches

These switches provide aggregation to efficiently fill higher capacity links within both the metro access and aggregation tiers, minimizing the number of router assets required in the core. They offer state-of-the-art OAM and QoS capabilities, which eliminate significant complexity and cost, and can be deployed in a wide variety of locations. They also share the same operating system with all of Ciena’s Packet networking products.

Pluggable Transceiver Family

Ciena’s Pluggable Transceiver Family allows a flexible, pay-as-you-grow deployment model when adding specific functions to Packet Networking products. Traditional TDM services, for example, can be mapped onto a packet-based infrastructure, benefiting from its low cost-point while still maintaining the stringent timing and resilience required by the service. The end result? New and renewed revenue streams.
