With a wide range of optical transport offerings, Cisco is uniquely positioned to help carriers scale bandwidth while lowering costs and increasing service velocity through multilayer convergence.
Choose from a category-leading optical transport portfolio, including colorless and omnidirectional reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADM), the industry's most complete IP over DWDM solution, and next-generation technologies like 100 Gigabit.
Get the Right Cisco Optical Solution
These comprehensive solutions offer industry-leading performance and density for the core, network edge, data center, and transport. Based on innovations in coherent optical digital signal processing and silicon photonics, Cisco solutions offer unparalleled reach and scale, plus greater density and reduced power consumption for switch and router interfaces.
Gain industry-leading, fourth-generation ROADM technology and easy-to-use software, plus simple installation and provisioning. Metro and Long Haul solutions spanning 10, 40, and 100 Gb are available for enterprises and service providers. Options include flexible, diverse packet, and optical aggregation.
Pioneered by Cisco, this technology and marked the first convergence of IP and optical. IPoDWDM takes up less space, uses less power, and builds a foundation for multilayer convergence, saving on both capital expenses (CapEx) and operating expenses (OpEx).
