Improved visibility. Automated processes. And increased network capacity and service availability from any given WDM investment. These are the benefits of leveraging Ciena’s Liquid Spectrum™, which combines variable bit-rate coherent optics, a flexible grid reconfigurable photonic layer, and SDN control in an open architecture.
Liquid Spectrum provides a blueprint for a software-defined architecture that is more agile, dynamic, software-driven, and open—to tackle the networking challenges of the new on-demand world, by delivering the following benefits:
– Service agility through a fully programmable and instrumented infrastructure
– Operational simplicity through sophisticated applications that abstract complexity associated with advanced flexible technologies
– Choice in architecture implementation through open APIs and a building block approach
