Cyan Extends its Packet-Optical + SDN with MPLS-TP

Cyan announced a series of new features to its Cyan Z-Series Packet-Optical Transport (P-OTP) and Blue Planet SDN platforms, including support for MPLS-TP, support for additional Carrier Ethernet 2.0+ capabilities, hitless software upgrades, traffic policing and shaping, and support for a new 100G DWDM coherent CFP.

Some highlights of the enhancements:

  • 8-degree, 96 channel ROADM – Cyan is adding to the existing family of single-slot 2- and 4-degree ROADM modules to support more flexible topologies and high-density 10G, 100G, and future 400G applications.
  • Integrated amplifier modules – Cyan is introducing a new family of integrated Erbium Doped Fibre Amplifier (EDFA) modules, which provide extended optical reach for metro, regional, and long-haul applications.
  • Four new APIs for SDN-powered packet-optical infrastructure: Optical Services, SNMP Trap Forwarding, Physical and Logical Inventory, and Site Manager API.
  • Support for MPLS-TP - over the coming months, Cyan will roll out new MPLS-TP capabilities for the Z-Series PSW modules that will ensure highly reliable and predictable delivery of Ethernet services between metros and across an MPLS core. When coupled with Cyan’s Blue Planet SDN Platform, MPLS-TP capabilities will enable resilient and scalable packet transport along with advanced end-to-end control, multi-vendor management, and service orchestration. Cyan also will ensure interoperability between existing PBB-TE networks and new MPLS-TP deployments.

“Over the years, Cyan has been associated with many industry firsts; we brought to market the first family of purpose-built packet-optical transport platforms and the first SDN and NFV orchestration platform optimized for network operators and the WAN,” said Mark Floyd, CEO, Cyan. “With today’s enhancements, we have further enriched our offerings and solidified our position as the network transformation leader.”
