Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform converges three comprehensive networking layers into a single platform to provide customizable service delivery from the access edge, along the backbone core, and across ocean floors.

Future-ready scalability

Ciena’s coherent interfaces give you a full suite of field-proven, plug-and-play high-capacity solutions for metro, long-haul terrestrial, and submarine applications. WaveLogic 3 programmable transceivers enable broader, more economical 100G deployments — with the ability to scale to 400G and beyond. And for securing EVERY BYTE of your critical in-flight data, they also offer 100G/200G wire-speed encryption – an industry first!

More services, more business

The 6500’s high-density 10G transponders enable multi-protocol, low-latency and wire-speed encryption capabilities to maximize your service revenue opportunities.

The 6500 Family is available in four chassis sizes to cost effectively address transport requirements from the edge to the core over one converged infrastructure. Its flexible architecture and service offerings provide differentiating network operator benefits for myriad applications, including:

  • Metro and long-haul DWDM infrastructure
  • IP-optimized transport
  • Ethernet/legacy private line or wholesale service delivery
  • Triple play
  • Wireless backhaul
  • Data center connectivity
  • Cloud networks
  • Private network builds

Ciena’s 6500 Family unlocks the network’s full potential—leveraging advanced coherent optics, automated OTN, packet and SONET/SDH switching, control plane, and unified network management—to help network operators scale, manage, and differentiate their services.

Features & Benefits

  • Provides industry-leading 10G, 40G, and 100G coherent and control plane capabilities for scale and service differentiation
  • Utilizes unconstrained OTN and packet switching technologies for the most efficient use of network resources
  • Offers embedded and discrete software tools to increase programmability, visibility, and control of the optical network
  • Adapts to a wide variety of requirements with a minimal set of equipment, reducing standardization and operational costs
  • Maximizes operational efficiencies with the ability to tailor customer solutions via various chassis, power, and configuration options

Details

Boasting years of coherent deployment experience, 40G/100G solutions equipped with WaveLogic Coherent Optical Processors scale the capacity and reach of existing networks with operational simplicity. The system also features electronic dispersion compensation and supports directionless and colorless ROADM functionality, which combine with Ciena’s OneConnect Intelligent Control Plane for automation, and OTN/packet switching to maximize both the bandwidth efficiency and flexibility of the overall network.
