In this Chalk Talk video, Joe Shapiro, Ciena product manager, details the new Waveserver Ai platform. Waveserver Ai is purpose-built for DCI applications, delivering up to 400G per wavelength and 2.4 Terabits of client plus 2.4 Terabits of line capacity in a single rack unit – by far the highest capacity for a 1RU platform in the industry. This dramatically increases total potential fiber capacity to 30Tbps in flexible grid networks.
Waveserver Ai leverages our new WaveLogic Ai coherent chipset to enable DCI at any distance. It scales from metro to long haul, and has the performance to maximize capacity for any distance. This gives operators the ability to upgrade shorter metro links from 200 Gbps to 400 Gbps, or increase capacity from 100 Gbps to 200 Gbps across the long-haul.
