Cyan

Cyan is an industry-leading, global provider of next generation packet-optical transport solutions with revolutionary multi-layer network planning and management. Providing metro and regional aggregation and transport of packet, TDM and optical services with superior service level agreement (SLA) support, Cyan’s solutions provide the industry’s first and only 3-dimensional multi-layer planning, operations and verification systems to scale, extend and simplify networks for more profitable service offerings.

Recognized as the industry’s first purpose-built packet-optical transport system, Cyan’s solutions modularly support Carrier Ethernet services (MEF) with connection oriented Ethernet transport, SONET/SDH, OTN, DWDM and ROADM functions in a highly cost-effective and scalable manner from the access edge to the network core. The ability to support 10G services today, while laying a foundation for future 100G services has enabled Cyan’s customers to deploy field-proven solutions for key applications such as Carrier Ethernet, wireless backhaul, broadband backhaul (middle-mile), data center connectivity and interconnect, and wholesale services transport for metro, state-wide, regional, national, multi-national and Enterprise networks across North America and Europe.

Founded in Petaluma, California in 2006, Cyan is lead by a team of industry veterans with a track record of successful innovation in communications transport and access networks around the world.
