The Z22 is a compact, environmentally hardened packet-optical platform optimized for deployments at the network edge.


Part of the Z-Series family, the modular, carrier-grade Z22 platform provides up to 400 Gb/s of switching capacity in a single two-slot shelf and supports the full suite of Z-Series Ethernet, wavelength, OTN, and SONET/SDH modules.


At just 2RU in height, the Z22 delivers flexibility and cost efficiency in a compact footprint. It complements the Z33 and Z77 for a complete solution from the edge to the metro core. With a holistic approach to the transport network, the Ciena Z-Series enables scalable, service-rich networks with operational simplicity and capital efficiency.
