Ciena announces WaveLogic 3 technology

Ciena Corporation has announced the launch of WaveLogic 3, a software programmable coherent technology that scales to 400 Gb/s.

This new generation of the company’s family of silicon chips will enable service providers to accelerate the move to dynamic, software defined Terabit networking while improving network economics. Beyond scaling bandwidth and lowering costs, WaveLogic, powered networks can be programmed to quickly respond and adapt to changing requirements for capacity, reach and latency.

The new technology that underpins Ciena’s WaveLogic 3 changes the game in optical networking by making the optical layer more intelligent and responsive to application needs—an increasingly critical requirement in today’s dynamic and cloud centric networks.

The capacity and reach of Ciena’s WaveLogic 3, which will be deployed in the second half of 2012,  is such that a single chipset could carry live Skype video chats from every household in San Francisco all the way to Tokyo, simultaneously.

Steve Alexander, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Ciena, said, ‘Ciena’s latest enhancements to WaveLogic 3 will equip service providers to scale their networks to meet the intense bandwidth requirements of cloud computing and other data intensive applications, remotely, with a network that is easily programmed to scale across metropolitan areas, continents or oceans offering huge cost savings and competitive advantage.’
