The Z33 is Ciena’s environmentally hardened packet-optical platform optimized for edge and aggregation deployments.


Part of the Z-Series family, the mid-sized Z33 system balances flexibility with low cost to efficiently scale network capacity at the edge. The modular six-slot shelf supports the full range of Z-Series Ethernet, wavelength, OTN, and SONET/SDH modules to enable switching, aggregation, grooming, and transport for any mix of services. Service modules also support pluggable SFPs/XFPs for media and reach flexibility.


At just 5RU in height, the Z33 complements the Z22 and Z77 platforms for a complete solution from the edge to the metro core. With a holistic approach to the transport network, the Z-Series enables scalable, service rich networks with operational simplicity and capital efficiency.
