Technologies and Products

IP Wave is Ribbon’s framework for creating service-driven IP Optical networking solutions that enable service providers to address major network and operational challenges by building, deploying, managing and future-proofing their multi-layer data and optical networks. IP Wave solutions fuse optimised hardware and automation software within an open architecture to give service providers the agility they need to rapidly create and deliver services. Ribbon says it is the only vendor with a complete offering, under one organisational roof, that can deliver advanced IP routing, optical transport, and automation and orchestration software, all supported by professional services.

The IP Wave optimised hardware includes IP routing optimised for multi-access edge, aggregation and metro networks; 400G optical transport everywhere, with up to 1.2T per channel; forecast-tolerant multilayer integration encompassing both IPoDWDM and IPoOT; and open architectures, unlocking the innovation velocity and improved economics offered by disaggregated networking.

IP Wave software enables service providers to automate operational processes gradually and at their own pace. Combining analytics, workflow engines, and closed loop processes, IP Wave delivers practical automation, from human-assisted to intent-driven, while supporting multi-domain, multi-vendor environments. Ribbon leverages cloud native SDN orchestration software with DevOps to customise applications to customers’ specific needs.

Rogers is one of the first tier-one North American service providers to leverage the company’s DWDM 400G ZR+ technology, which supports multiple 400 Gigabits-per-second connections for increased capacity across its national footprint.

Ribbon is showcasing its IP Wave framework booth #3749.
