Converged Packet Optical: The company’s Converged Packet Optical portfolio includes networking solutions optimized for the convergence of coherent optical transport, OTN switching and packet switching. Utilizing its coherent 40G and 100G optical transport technology, its 6500 Packet-Optical Platform provides a flexible, scalable dense wavelength division multiplexing solution that adds capacity to core, regional and metro networks and enables transport at high transmission speeds. The company’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform features its WaveLogic coherent optical processors. The company’s third generation of this custom silicon chipset facilitates deployment over existing fiber plant (terrestrial and submarine), scales capacity to 40G, 100G and greater transmission speeds, and minimizes the need for certain network equipment, such as amplifiers, regenerators and dispersion compensating devices. Its 6500 Packet-Optical Platform also includes certain integrated switching elements, addressing market demand for converged network features, functions and layers to drive network infrastructures. This platform — which includes various chassis sizes and a comprehensive set of line cards — can be utilized from the customer premises, where space and power are limited, to the metropolitan/regional core, where the need for high capacity and carrier-class performance is essential. The company’s Converged Packet Optical portfolio also includes products that provide packet switching capability to allocate network capacity and enable service delivery. Its 5430 Reconfigurable Switching System includes a family of multi-terabit reconfigurable switching systems that utilize intelligent mesh networking to provide resiliency and feature an integrated optical control plane to automate the provisioning and bandwidth control of high-capacity services. These platforms flexibly support a mix of Carrier Ethernet/MPLS, OTN, WDM, and SONET/SDH switching t
