Ciena’s new Waveserver platform tackles scalability, space and automation challenges in data centre interconnect

Leveraging Ciena’s experience with deployments for some of the world’s largest Internet content players and leading data centre providers, such as Equinix, Continuum, Digital Realty and Forsythe Data Centre, the new platform is powered by Ciena’s WaveLogic technology and built with open software principles to enable automation and simplify management. Additionally, with Ciena’s new Emulation Cloud, an open, rapid prototyping environment, network providers, data centre operators and developers can test and refine applications before they are added to the network.

Ron Kline, principal analyst, intelligent networks at Ovum, said, ‘Data traffic volumes between metro data centres is skyrocketing and generating significant volume for high capacity DCI. Vendors are responding to this emerging opportunity with a new class of equipment specifically designed and optimised for web-scale operators. Traditional optical platforms were designed for telco environments not data centre environments making scale difficult. Ciena’s Waveserver stackable DCI platform is specifically designed for delivery of high capacity DCI in a manner that is consistent with how ICP’s currently build and operate their networks.’
