Ciena Intros Compact Waveserver for Data Center Interconnect

Ciena introduced a new data center interconnect (DCI) platform that allows cloud, Internet content providers and data center providers to quickly scale bandwidth between facilities.


The new Waveserver stackable interconnect platform is designed to support high-speed data transfer, virtual machine migration and disaster recovery/backup between data centers. The compact, stackable server design supports 19.2 Tbps per fiber on a 50 GHz and is powered by Ciena’s WaveLogic technology. It provides a total of 800G of input and output made up of 400G Ethernet clients plus 400G of line capacity in one rack unit.  Client interfaces include 10 x QSFP+ (40 x 10GbE; 10 x 40GbE); 4 x QSFP28 (4 x 100GbE).

Additionally, with Ciena’s new Emulation Cloud, an open, rapid prototyping environment, network providers, data center operators and developers can test and refine applications before they are added to the network.

“The requirements of the new DCI operational paradigm can only be met by introducing new functionalities, tools and capabilities that live and breathe at web-scale. Ciena’s Waveserver encompasses multiple attributes of web-scale IT into the network to handle connections, offer open APIs, and support applications for any bandwidth need between data centers. The introduction of this platform further cements Ciena’s established DCI market leadership,” said Francois Locoh-Donou, Senior Vice President, Global Products Group, Ciena.
