Ciena Adds Long-Haul Capability to Waveserver DCI System

Ciena announced long haul capabilities for its Waveserver data center interconnect (DCI) platform/

The Waveserver leverages Ciena’s WaveLogic 3 Extreme chipset to provide 200 Gbps wavelengths at greater than 1,000 km distances and 100 Gbps wavelengths in excess of 10,000 km.

Waveserver is in customer trials and will be generally available in October 2015. Long-haul optics capabilities on the platform are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2016.

“A direct response to customer demand on the heels of our Waveserver introduction earlier this year, the enhancements that support DCI for any distance deliver another industry first in coherent technology and overcome the DCI capacity and distance trade-off paradigm. Competing platforms lack the high-performance of our WaveLogic Extreme chips and its breadth of advanced network monitoring and optimization capabilities,” stated Francois Locoh-Donou, Senior Vice President, Global Products Group, Ciena.

In May 2015, 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 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).
