Apollo programmable and open optical networks satisfy ever growing demands for bandwidth while providing network operators with future-proof solutions tailored to their individual business needs.

Built for choice, Apollo provides high-performance optical links filling up channels to their theoretical limits, as well as cost-power optimized links. All solutions use scalable pay-as-you-grow pluggable interfaces. SDN-controlled ROADMs and OTN switches dynamically route links and the services they carry from the access to the core.

Apollo is easy to deploy and to manage, and open interfaces enable Apollo to participate in multi-vendor environments.
