Optical Networking

Business-driven bandwidth: Build a transport network that lets you rapidly monetize your network investment

Meet the growing demand for dynamic, high-capacity services with Nokia Optical Networking solutions.

Our optical transport technologies let you deliver bandwidth that meets the needs of large enterprises, cloud operators, and internet content providers. They give you the network capacity, efficiency, and flexibility you need to support services that can be deployed and reconfigured on demand.

We provide a portfolio of solutions powered by our Photonic Service Engine (PSE) chipset, the world’s most advanced programmable super coherent digital signal processors. This portfolio gives you:

  • Industry-leading optical network capacity
  • More wavelength capacity and wavelengths per fiber
  • Platforms that can efficiently deliver differentiated services

With our Optical Networking innovations and platforms, you can deliver business-driven bandwidth while maintaining profitability and lowering cost per bit.

Nokia takes great pride in winning the NGON & Optical DCI award for Best Optical Transport Network Provider—an award based on the best scalable, high-capacity, cost-effective optical transport network for 2018. Learn more


Realize the full potential of your optical network

More scalable

Address the growing demand for dynamic services with petabit-scale multilayer switching and networking. Our Optical Networking portfolio uses super coherent technology that packs more 100G services into every transport equipment rack unit, wavelength, and fiber.

More efficient

Make your network efficient by using the same optical transport platform for every application, fiber type, and reach. Our 1830 Photonic Service Switch meets all your optical transport needs. We also simplify optical networking with a unified management system and a resilient, multilayer control plane.

More flexible

Make service delivery more agile and minimize network TCO with a multilayer network that can accelerate time to revenue. Our platforms leverage SDN architectures to harness the power of the most flexible and programmable optical network. Multilayer optical networking flexibility also gives you an economical means to get the most out of your network for every application and fiber type.

The Photonic Service Engine 3 is lighting the way to a new approach and taking optical networking to the limit of physics. Fulfill your network’s true potential with maximum capacity and radically simplified programmability.
