|Ciena Redefines How Optical Networks Are Built and Operated with Liquid Spectrum|
Ciena® is introducing new capabilities that empower network operators to tune, control and dynamically adjust optical capacity in an on-demand world, where 5G, IoT, content delivery and cloud are rapidly redefining network requirements. By combining fully-instrumented flexible optics and innovative software, Liquid Spectrum can monitor and mine all available network assets so operators can instantly respond to new bandwidth demands and allocate capacity across any path in real time.
Liquid Spectrum is the cumulative value of a series of next-generation optical and software technologies. It includes Ciena’s highly instrumented reconfigurable photonic layer, WaveLogic Ai coherent optics, Blue Planet Manage, Control and Plan (MCP), and new advanced software applications. Consistent with Ciena’s OPn philosophy on networking, Liquid Spectrum utilizes APIs and standard interfaces to support operators’ requirements for an accessible, open architecture.
