Ciena, Arista Complete Interoperability Testing of 400GE-Optimized Transport Solution

Ciena (NYSE: CIEN) and Arista recently completed an interoperability test of the industry´s most dense and spectrally efficient 400GE transport solution with the industry´s highest density native 400GE router, the companies said.

The test showed the successful interworking of the Ciena and Arista platforms, which combined can enable network providers to switch and transport maximum capacity across any distance, from single-span to long-haul and subsea links, all while reducing footprint and power in datacenter environments.

The interoperability test leveraged Ciena´s Waveserver 5, powered by WaveLogic 5 Extreme (WL5e) coherent optics, and Arista´s 7280DR3 to show how high-bandwidth 100GE and 400GE client traffic can be maximized across any distance, supporting industry-leading fiber capacities up to 38.4Tbps.

Arista Networks pioneered software-driven, cognitive cloud networking for large-scale datacenter and campus environments. Additional information and resources can be found at
