Open Optical Networking

Unlock and Unleash Your Optical Network with Accelerated Innovation Velocity

Open optical networking provides network operators with more choice and enables each function to innovate at its own pace due to the disaggregation of transponders and line systems. Coherent optical transceivers leverage both the silicon performance improvement cycle described by Moore’s law and advances in photonic technology, resulting in a much faster innovation cycle relative to the optical line system.

More choice

Select the ideal products and technologies for each network layer and domain independently from a broad array of vendors, avoiding the constraints of a single vendor and one-size-fits-all solutions that provide limited scope for competitive advantage.
