Ciena's ‘Back to School’ Optical Series is in Session!

Live Webinars: September 20 – 29 | 11am ET

Ciena’s taking you ‘Back to School’ with an educational webinar series— hosted by our technical experts—that delves into advanced technologies powering new levels of scale, efficiencies, and programmability into optical networks.

We’ll Do the Math: The Economics of Programmable Coherent Networks
Date: September 20
Now available on-demand!
Specialist: Michel Belanger, Director, Advanced Electro-Optic Design
How will operators be able to continue to drive down cost per bit in transport networks—today and well into the future? This session quantifies economic benefits associated with programmable coherent optics, using both technologies of today and tomorrow.

The Big “Tech” on Campus: Implications of Flexible Grid
Date: September 22
Now available on-demand!
Specialist: David Bownass, Senior Manager, Photonics Development
To achieve scalable metro and long-haul networks, flexible grid line systems are required to take full advantage of significant cost, space, and power savings provided by next-gen coherent modems. Attend this session to understand drivers and implications of migrating to flexible grid.

Go to the Head of the Class with Flex Ethernet and Flex OTN
Date: September 27
Specialist: Sebastien Gareau, Architect, Optical Systems Design
Transport networks today offer limited flexibility and are dependent on standards development for service rates and interfaces. To optimize network efficiency and transport bandwidth utilization, the industry is looking at introducing flexibility at the service layer. Learn about Flex Ethernet and Flex OTN—two new initiatives being developed to meet these challenges that are sure to send you to the head of the class!

The Power of Software—Via ‘Honor Roll’ Open APIs
Date: September 29
Specialist: Dave Miedema, Architect, Photonic Software
Get yourself on the Honor Roll! It’s all about removing restraints to agility—getting faster to market with innovative solutions. In this session, learn how open interfaces provide new opportunities for increasing flexibility for the end user as well as programmability for the network.

Attend all four sessions and we’ll send you a 'Back to School' gift.
