(MENAFN Press) Ciena Corporation, the network specialist, today unveiled WaveLogic Photonics, new line intelligence capabilities that significantly improve visibility, control and programmability of packet optical networks. Comprised of Ciena's leading coherent optics, flexible optical line elements and embedded and discrete software tools, WaveLogic Photonics gives service providers the ability to leverage software programmability at greater scale to transform their network from a fixed asset that provides commodity connectivity to one that is automated for faster service responsiveness and differentiation.



Key Facts



Powering network transformation through convergence, WaveLogic Photonics combines with adjustable packet and OTN traffic management capabilities to enable a programmable, future-proof service platform. This makes the network more dynamic and responsive to changing demands and applications needs



WaveLogic Photonics accelerates service responsiveness while reducing the need for upfront forecasting and traffic capacity planning. The capabilities include flexible line elements such as programmable line amplifiers, Smart Raman and customizable Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADMs) configurations “ from metro to core



The next step in Ciena's OPn architecture evolution, WaveLogic Photonics builds upon the intelligence already found in Ciena's WaveLogic coherent optics across the entire optical line system. Product enhancements include



OExpanded control plane capabilities “ Ciena's field-proven OneConnect Intelligent Control Plane, ranked number one in Infonetics' latest Optical Equipment Vendor Leadership Survey, now includes additional distributed intelligence across the photonic and OTN layers. This ensures that operators can offer a broad selection of service level guarantees and new service offerings



OSmart Raman “ Eliminating time consuming manual configuration steps as well as the potential damage to equipment and fiber that accompanies traditional Raman deployments, Ciena's Smart Raman provides simple and automatic turn-up by autonomously testing and ensuring proper fiber conditions are met prior to self-activation. The ability to plug and play Raman into the network helps service providers optimize span and system designs and minimize the use of costly regenerators



OPinPoint„ “ Ciena's advanced fiber analytic software leverages Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) capabilities that are now integrated directly into the network elements to create a complete fiber loss profile “ analogous to a CT scan of the network. This allows network operators to precisely localize and deal with potential trouble spots, reducing the risk of outages and accelerating repair times from days to hours. It creates the opportunity for proactive maintenance to improve network characteristics and also keeps track of historical information so administrators can remotely validate that installation, maintenance and repairs have been properly executed, which ensures the fiber plant is always conditioned for optimal system performance

Industry Comments



"Ciena built the foundation for WaveLogic Photonics over many years through its own coherent optics, unified management software, packet networking, intelligent switching and control plane solutions. Now they're able to aggregate these functions with software to bring visibility, control and automation across the photonic and OTN layers of the network. This will allow service providers to operate and modify their networks more efficiently and quickly either through manual or software driven control.



-Andrew Schmitt, Principal Analyst, Optical, Infonetic



"As we prepare to scale our core network beyond 100G technology, it is critical that we have the most efficient and highly scalable infrastructure in place to meet the growing demand for content, speed, cloud, and business services. During our live Terabit field trial, the Raman and PinPoint components of Ciena's WaveLogic Photonics solution were instrumental in helping us recover material decibels of system margin and extend unregenerated signal reach for maximum performance.



-Kevin McElearney, Senior Vice President Network Engineering, Comcas



Executive Comments



"Wavelogic Photonics is another step in realizing our OPn network architecture vision, which is designed to make networks more responsive to business needs. As networks become strategic application-responsive assets, an intelligent, agile optical layer is vital to achieving the necessary flexibility to support changing network demands. WaveLogic Photonics enables network operators to reliably shift their operating model from just 'configuring' to actually 'programming' the network in real-time“ increasing service velocity while eliminating the potential for manual errors and the cumbersome tracking processes that plague networking today. It also allows operators to easily view their network assets and program them to automatically respond to service requests and intelligently route packet services across the network.



-Steve Alexander, Chief Technology Officer, Ciena



Ciena at OFC 2014 (Booth #3684, North Hall)



Ciena's President and CEO Gary Smith will deliver a plenary session address on March 11 at 8 a.m. PT, where he will discuss the network ecosystem of tomorrow and how the industry can improve the user experience through convergence, programmability, openness, and software intelligence.



Ciena will showcase WaveLogic Photonics and a number of converged packet optical demonstrations at the event and also leverage its OPn testbed to show applications in development for multi-layer path computation, provisioning, dynamic pricing, and network utilization.
