Ciena's 8180 Coherent Networking Platform

The 2019 Lightwave Innovation Review honored Ciena’s 8180 Coherent Networking Platform with a score of 4.5/5. The judges commended that the 8180 is “A superb product that demonstrates clear and substantial benefits.”

Ciena’s 8180 Coherent Networking Platform was designed to elevate the experience of cable operator end-customers by bringing capacity closer to the edge with an open/easy-to-operate coherent networking platform. Its density, scale, and capacity enable dramatic space reduction – driving down energy, switching, and transport costs while increasing the service providers’ competitive differentiation. The 8180 enables operators to realize significant cost/bit, operational, and energy savings by combining normally separate packet and optical devices in to a single ultra-dense platform.
