Ciena enhances Blue Planet Platform

Ciena (NYSE: CIEN) is introducing enhanced policy capabilities into its Blue Planet intelligent automation platform that incorporates the architectural framework from the Linux Foundation´s open-source Open Networking Automation Platform (ONAP) to aid network providers´ evolution to more adaptive, software-centric networks, the company said.

The new Blue Planet policy subsystem will support advanced closed-loop automation use cases, such as preventing a potential failure or dynamically scaling capacity to support growing bandwidth demands. Additionally, it will give operators more control to create intent-based policies that better guide their networks to address potential obstacles and meet their key growth objectives.
