OnePlanner is an advanced multi-layer network design and optimization tool that leverages Ciena’s extensive background in Layer 1 control plane planning and simulation, photonic system design, advanced algorithm research, and GUI development into a comprehensive and easy-to-use platform. OnePlanner correlates data from different network layers, allowing the network planner to easily see the association between services, facilities, and equipment.
OnePlanner’s Photonic module supports 6500 Packet-Optical Platform and Common Photonic Layer (CPL) photonics designs. The Optical Switching module supports 5410/5430 Reconfigurable Switching Systems and 6500 SONET/SDH and OTN control plane network dimensioning and what-if failure scenarios.
OnePlanner’s modular architecture enables use of design and engineering modules with the Ciena portfolio. These can be used autonomously for a specific layer, or simultaneously to plan, design, and model networks involving both Layers 0 and 1. Network topology and service demands can be entered into the system through the intuitive GUI or imported as well-defined text files. OnePlanner can be deployed in a standalone configuration or in a multi-user client/server configuration.
