High-density packet aggregation. High-capacity coherent optical. You need both to elevate the experience for your end-users. We’ve got both—combined into one, compact modular platform—to simplify your network and reduce your packet and transport costs.

Ciena’s 8180 Coherent Networking Platform combines the industry-leading capacity and embedded intelligence of WaveLogic coherent transport with the density, openness, and programmability of a packet switch. As part of an end-to-end solution that peers with both packet switch devices and coherent networking platforms, it provides a high-density on-ramp to the coherent optical network.


  • Outstanding 100GbE density in compact form to address space concerns
  • Interoperable WaveLogic Ai coherent packet-optical technology
  • 6.4 Tb/s packet fabric in 2 rack units
  • Utilizes Carrier Ethernet, IP routing, and MPLS
  • Open networking packet flow capability
  • Four flexible Field Replaceable Unit slots, from 100G to 800G
