Ciena Unveils 6500 T-Series Packet-Optical Platform

Ciena unveiled a new 6500 T-Series packet/optical platform for metro and regional networks.

Ciena’s 6500 T-Series, which converges packet, OTN, and flexible WaveLogic photonics, provides up to ten times more port density, scaling from 2.4 Tb/s to 24 Tb/s in a single chassis, and to more than 100 Tb/s in a multi-chassis nodal configuration.

Ciena confirmed that Verizon is in the process of deploying the new 6500 T-Series to scale its next generation 100G metro network from both a capacity and an operational perspective, as well as efficiently distribute customizable content to end users and provide an on-demand, superior customer experience.


Ciena is also adding greater levels of openness and programmability to its entire 6500 Packet-Optical Platform family by adding open API support and the ability to leverage its Emulation Cloud, which allows service providers to create, test and fine-tune customized applications in a virtual networking environment, giving them the power to innovate and speed time-to-market for new services.

Ciena is also integrating 6500 into its Blue Planet software, enabling service providers to automate services – from creation through orchestration and delivery – across both physical and virtual domains as well as multi-vendor environments.

“More powerful smartphones, tablets and the proliferation of streaming video from consumers and businesses alike are pushing networks to the brink of current capabilities. T-Series adds powerful new capabilities to our market-leading 6500 Packet-Optical Platform family and builds on its widespread installed base to help our customers build larger, more agile and robust networks that cater to rising web-scale demands today and well into the future,” stated Scott McFeely, Senior Vice President, Networking Platforms Division, Ciena.
