IP Wave provides MUSE SDN Orchestrator to provide practical automation, allowing network operators to migrate to continuous automation in stages, at a pace suited to their own operational needs. Muse optimizes networks to deliver services cost-effectively, extracting the maximum value from the network and supporting the rapid introduction of new services and new network technologies, as required. Powered by a carrier-grade cloud-native PaaS, Muse uses cognitive service-centric software to deliver real-time control over a programmable IP Optical network infrastructure. A suite of advanced service and network control applications empowers network operators to do more, through intuitive service creation and lifecycle management, proactive network assurance, network optimization, and automation. It guarantees the right tools are provided to meet any business model.
IP Wave uses the Neptune IP routing portfolio to support increasingly complex services, an evolving service mix, and the dynamic edge cloud environment. Advanced IP routing capabilities provide the dynamic, service-oriented, connectivity required in the distributed cloud era; and a super-converged multi-access edge allows multiple services to be supported from a single, common, IP routing platform. With 400G ZR+ pluggables, Neptune can operate in a single layer IP network using hop-by-hop provisioning, and in multilayer IP Optical networks by using multilayer optimization to integrate with an optical underlay. Neptune’s IP routing capabilities are built around a proven telco-grade NOS allowing various hardware/software disaggregation options to be utilized.
IP Wave uses the Apollo IP optical networking portfolio to provide OTN transport and OTN switching solutions that scale across access, metro, and long haul applications. Apollo is programmable to 1.2T per channel, with an ability to transport 400G over the ultra-long-haul; leveraging both capacity-optimized transceivers and power-cost optimized 400G ZR+ pluggable. Its open line system supports Ribbon and alien wavelengths on an equal basis and enables service providers to offer cutting-edge shared spectrum services.
