Ciena WaveRoute for converged metro
Ciena has introduced WaveRouter, a new platform architecture optimally designed for the converged metro network.
WaveRouter is designed to support the exponential growth of metro traffic driven by bandwidth-hungry services such as 5G, high-speed broadband, enterprise business services, and the cloud. It unifies IP, optical, and compute functionality in a single platform and offers future-proof scalability from 6Tb/s to 192Tb/s a.
WaveRouter uses Ciena’s WaveLogic coherent optics and intelligent multi-layer control and automation to provide what the company calls a high-performance, easy-to-operate, and greener coherent routing solution. It meets the vigorous demands of metro networks by bringing together the best of platform architecture, transport technologies, and software to eliminate trade-offs in space, power, cooling, and scalability.
