Achieving IP/Optical Convergence: Building from Existing Networks

July 8, 2021

Enterprise and residential market dynamics, 5G, and the cloud are driving new applications—and creating new revenue opportunities for Communications Service Providers (CSPs). But these emerging use cases are also creating challenges: new traffic patterns, the move to virtualized and distributed applications, and the need for higher bandwidth and lower latency connectivity to end-users. IP/Optical convergence can play a key role in helping CSPs address these, but where does the path to architecture evolution begin? For every CSP, the journey is unique. With Ciena’s solutions, CSPs can start—and build—from their existing networks to evolve to a more streamlined, programmatic infrastructure that can serve as the foundation for innovation in the distributed services and content era.

5G Open RAN Ecosystem

whitePaper | June 29, 2021

There is no end to the process of network augmentation, and current augmentation process needs to be further enhanced to better serve the future customer needs. To this effect, the networks should be flexible, agile and scalable. In addition, in the 5G era, creation of new vertical markets utilizing the mobile networks will be facilitated. Under these circumstances, operators need to keep evolving their networks by adding new network equipment and/or replacing existing equipment. With open interfaces and open application programming interfaces (APIs), operators can freely choose and adopt best-of-breed solutions among various vendors considering time-to-market and cost in this process by only adding or replacing the required components at the required time without having to swap other equipment that are connected.

Protecting Against Email-Based Threats

whitePaper | July 12, 2021

Email filtering often misses malicious sites because detection-based techniques find it difficult to continuously build defenses against the large number of phishing sites created daily. While email phishing attacks are highly successful, they are also entirely avoidable. Email Isolation provides organizations with the means they need to protect against this common threat without damaging the end user’s experience.
