In the network’s core, we deliver high-capacity transport and switching products that create an automated, dynamic optical infrastructure supporting a wide variety of network services. In the metro portion of the network, we deliver a comprehensive, converged transport and switching solution that manages circuits, wavelengths and packets. In managed services applications and enterprise networks, we enable enterprise-oriented services including storage, data connectivity, video and business Ethernet services. In mobile backhaul applications, we provide wireline and wireless carriers with the tools to migrate their networks to support mobile data applications and enable Ethernet-based backhaul. In submarine networks, we enhance existing submarine network fiber assets, increasing bandwidth capacity and enabling higher-availability services and differentiated customer-focused offerings.

Packet-Optical Transport

Our Packet-Optical Transport portfolio includes industry leading, high-capacity transport platforms such as our ActivFlex 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, which features coherent, 40G and 100G optical transport. Our Packet-Optical Transport platforms include flexible, scalable wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) solutions that enable cost-effective and efficient transport of voice, video and data related to a variety of services for core networks as well as regional and metro networks. We offer scalable Packet-Optical Transport platforms, including several chassis sizes and a comprehensive set of line cards, that can be utilized from the customer premises, where space and power are critical, to the metropolitan/regional core, where the need for high capacity and carrier-class performance are essential. By automating optical infrastructures, our Packet-Optical Transport products support the efficient delivery of a wide variety of consumer-oriented network services, as well as key managed service and enterprise applications.

Our Packet-Optical Transport family of products focuses on high-capacity optical transport and includes reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) capability. In addition to our CN 4200® FlexSelect®Advanced Services Platform (now “ActivSpan 4200”) and our Corestream® Agility Optical Transport System, our Packet-Optical Transport portfolio includes the following products acquired from the MEN Business:
• Optical Multiservice Edge 6500 (now “ActivFlex 6500 Packet Optical Platform”)

• Optical Multiservice Edge 6110 (now “ActivFlex 6110 Multiservice Optical Platform”)

• Optical Metro 5200 (now “ActivSpan 5200”)

• Common Photonic Layer (now “ActivSpan CPL”)

• Optical Multiservice Edge 1000 series (OME 1000)

• Optical Metro 3500 (OM 3500)
Our Packet-Optical Transport solutions also include legacy SONET/SDH products and legacy data networking products, as well as certain enterprise-oriented transport solutions that support storage and LAN extension, interconnection of data centers, and virtual private networks.

Packet-Optical Switching

Our Packet-Optical Switching family of products provides TDM switching and packet switching capability. Our principal Packet-Optical Switching product is our CoreDirector® Multiservice Optical Switch. CoreDirector is a multiservice, multi-protocol switching system that consolidates the functionality of an add/drop multiplexer, digital cross-connect and packet aggregator, into a single, high-capacity intelligent switching system. CoreDirector’s mesh capability enables more efficient and more reliable networks. In addition to its application in core networks, CoreDirector may also be used in metro networks for aggregation and forwarding of multiple services, including Ethernet/TDM Private Line, Triple Play and IP services. We are in the early stages of a technology transition within our Packet-Optical Switching platform, from our CoreDirector platform toward our ActivFlex 5400 family of Reconfigurable Switching Systems. These multi-terabit OTN and packet switching systems with integrated transport functionality can be flexibly configured to implement a broad range of network elements, including a scalable optical cross-connect, feature-rich Carrier Ethernet switch, or a fully converged packet-optical transport and switching system. These new platforms provide the capabilities and reliability of CoreDirector, while providing service providers the ability to scale to higher capacities and transition to packet-based networks.

Carrier Ethernet Service Delivery

Our Carrier Ethernet Service Delivery products have applications from the edge of metro and core networks to the customer premises. These products allow customers to utilize the automation and capacity created by our Packet-Optical Transport products in core and metro networks and deliver new, revenue-generating services to consumers and enterprises. Our Carrier Ethernet Service Delivery offering primarily consists of our ActivEdge service delivery switching products, ActivEdge service aggregation platforms and legacy broadband access products for residential services.

Our ActivEdge service delivery and aggregation switches provide True Carrier Ethernet, a more reliable and feature rich type of Ethernet that can support a wider variety of services. These products support the access and aggregation tiers of communications networks, and are typically deployed in metro and access networks. Service delivery products are often used at customer premises locations while aggregation platforms are used to combine services to improve network resource utilization. Employing sophisticated carrier Ethernet switching technology, these products deliver quality of service capabilities, virtual local area networking and switching functions, and carrier-grade operations, administration, and maintenance features. In 2010, we introduced several additions to our service delivery and aggregation offering intended to increase capacity for higher bandwidth user connections and a broader set of aggregation and switching capabilities, such as enterprise locations, backhaul from wireless cell sites, multi-tenant unit buildings and outside plant cabinets. Initial deployment of these products have principally been in support of wireless backhaul deployments, including, in large part, 4G WiMax, and business data services.

Our principal product for consumer broadband is our CNX-5 Broadband DSL System. This broadband access platform allows service providers to transition legacy voice networks to support next-generation services such as Internet-based (IP) telephony, video services and DSL, and enable cost-effective migration to higher bandwidth Ethernet network infrastructures.

Unified Software and Service Management Tools

Our Packet-Optical Transport, Packet-Optical Switching and Carrier Ethernet Service Delivery products include a shared suite of embedded operating system software and network management software tools that serve to unify our product portfolio and provide the underlying automation and management features. Our embedded software is a robust, service aware framework that improves network utilization and availability, while delivering enhanced performance monitoring and reliability. By increasing network automation, minimizing network downtime and monitoring network performance and service metrics, our embedded software and network management software tools enable customers to improve cost effectiveness, while increasing the performance and functionality of their network operations. To consolidate our software offerings, we have introduced the Ciena One software suite. This suite will be the framework for harmonizing the embedded software and the network management software from the pre-acquisition Ciena portfolio and the MEN portfolio.

ON-Center® Network & Service Management Suite, our pre-acquisition Ciena integrated network and service management software, is designed to simplify network management and operation across our portfolio. ON-Center can track individual services across multiple product suites, facilitating planned network maintenance, outage detection and identification of customers or services affected by network troubles. The MEN Acquisition added network and service management products, such as OMEA and Preside, which are specific to the products of the MEN Business and are included in our combined product portfolio.
