Performance vs. Pluggables. Making the Right Coherent Technology Choice.

Bandwidth demands continue to rise and coherent optics are playing an increasingly important and expanding role in scaling networks and controlling costs. With two distinct, viable technology options to choose from, providers are faced with the dilemma of making the right choice for evolving their networks:

Do I select performance optics or coherent pluggables?
Does the application dictate the right solution?
What are the different factors to consider?
What are the cost savings associated with better performance?

Get answers to these questions, and more, in this educational session on architecture evolution that includes case studies performed on real customer networks.

  • Keys to Optimization. Unlock Your Network’s Potential with SDN Applications. Recorded: Jul 23 2020 61 mins
    Paulina Gomez & Helen Xenos (Ciena)
    As operators evolve their networks to adapt to the growing demands for capacity, what is the role of software control and automation in driving successful network evolution? What is the key to achieving maximum network efficiencies and simplifying next-gen network operations? This webinar focuses on the importance of advanced software applications in abstracting operational complexity associated with next-gen technologies, and empowering operators with the tools to best engineer, manage, and monetize their optical networks. The keys to unlocking the optimal balance of optical network performance, efficiency, and availability are at your fingertips with these new intelligent software automation capabilities.

  • Battle of the Bands. Get More Spectrum for More Fiber Capacity. Recorded: Jul 21 2020 61 mins
    Kent Jordan & Helen Xenos (Ciena)
    Network operators with rapid bandwidth growth want a simple, efficient way to scale their networks by increasing fiber capacity. But, different options for expanding usable fiber spectrum are being promoted across the industry, making it difficult to pick a winner.

    Which technology will prevail in this battle of the bands? 2 x C-band? Super C-band? C&L-band?

    This webinar examines each architecture and compares the technical specifications, costs, and operational considerations, so you can make an informed decision about which one is the best choice for deployment in your network.

  • Plug and Play. What You Need to Know for Practical Deployment of Coherent Plugs. Recorded: Jul 16 2020 61 mins
    Patricia Bower & Helen Xenos (Ciena)
    Pluggable coherent optics offer network operators more choice than ever before. Leveraging design techniques based on greater integration, lower power, and smaller area to pack more function into smaller forms, 400G coherent technology will soon be available in the same package size as high-speed client optics. Driving this forward in parallel, and building the base for a broader ecosystem, industry standards bodies have started to deliver a framework of specifications for pluggable coherent interoperability.

    What are the key features and performance metrics of these new pluggable products and where is it most advantageous for operators to deploy them?

    In this session, hear about the key foundational technologies and components required to build coherent plugs and the network applications where their modularity and density benefits really shine.

  • The Wireline Transport Network Will Dictate the Success of 5G Mobile Services Recorded: Sep 26 2019 61 mins
    Brian Lavallée, Sr. Director of 5G Portfolio Solutions, Ciena
    The only part of content’s journey that is wireless is from your smartphone to the radio installed atop of tower or side of a building. The rest of the content’s journey to a distant data center, where access content is hosted, is over a packet-optical transport network. This means that the end-to-end performance and quality of experience that the end-users, human or machine, is critically dependent on the packet-optical network that interconnect 5G radios to each other and to content-hosting data centers, whether close to the network edge or across an ocean. This webinar will discuss the various challenges and opportunities that are available to mobile network operators to better understand how to not only continue scaling and rolling out 4G revenue-generating services, but new 5G services as well.

    Key Takeaways:

    - 5G is more than just a wireless upgrade
    - 5G will need fiber, and lots of it
    - Importance of wireline networks to successful 5G mobile services network services
    - How existing wireline networks must evolve and adapt to enable 5G mobile services
    - How to transition from early 5G networks, which leverage 4G wireline infrastructure, to Full 5G end-to-end networks
    - Overview of technologies to enable packet-based fronthaul, end-to-end orchestration, Network Slicing, and virtualization
