Optical networks

Scale made simple

Our optical network products and solutions enable scaling without limits to enable the foundational connectivity for your networked communications.   

We provide the solutions to scale from the network edge and across long-haul/core and subsea links, while simplifying network operations to let you build smarter, more automated networks that streamline service delivery and lower network TCO.    

By enabling new services such as 5G and packet services, while enabling more efficient network architectures, we help stay competitive and turn your optical networks into platforms that create value for your business and your customers. 

Optical Engines

Nokia’s vertically integrated optical engines power our optical transport solutions across access, metro, long-haul and subsea applications. These include our family of Photonic Services Engines (PSE) that provide scalable, application-optimized coherent optics used across our optical transport systems, pluggable coherent transceivers for use in optical transport and IP platforms, and optical silicon photonics transmitter/receiver optics integrated in Nokia and 3rd party coherent modules.
