Ciena has unveiled its latest software for virtual networks that are said to address operators’ need to bring the programmability and on-demand nature of the cloud to the wide-area network (WAN).

The firm claims Agility will allow for the delivery of virtualized, on-demand network services and functions.

It leverages advanced, real-time analytics to help network operators provision multi-vendor networks, ensure maximum efficiency and resiliency, and rapidly create and deploy new, differentiated virtualized services at lower cost, the company added.

Ciena’s new Agility software portfolio is built using OpenDaylight framework which gives network operators the ability to leverage a mix of open source, self-developed and vendor components from a broad ecosystem and helps them avoid being locked-in to a single vendor.

Agility also enables the network to dynamically predict and respond to changing demands from high-bandwidth services and applications.
