Trans Pacific Express Selects Ciena for Network Upgrade

The Trans Pacific Express cable network consortium has selected Ciena to increase the capacity on its 17,968 km international submarine cable system to address expanding bandwidth demands driven by growth in the Asia-Pacific region. Ciena is providing TPE with a multi-terabit upgrade using its GeoMesh submarine system, including its new WaveLogic coherent optical processors' capabilities, to more than triple the capacity of TPE, as compared to the original design capacity when it first went into service in 2008.

The Japan-U.S. Cable Network Selects Ciena to Expand its Trans-Pacific Submarine Network

Ciena Corp. to Lay Off 57 in Anne Arundel

Ciena Corp. announced it is laying off 57 employees in its distribution and product engineering departments, according to state officials. The company filed a WARN layoff notice with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation that says the job cuts will take effect May 29. The state agency says it will provide outplacement services, as needed, for the affected employees. The company employs about 4,700 people. Ciena spokeswoman Nicole Anderson said the company is outsourcing its distribution, repair and related activities. She said 55 employees in the company's supply chain team in Maryland will leave Ciena on a staggered timeline in May, August and October. She said affected employees will be eligible for severance, as well as outplacement assistance. The layoffs come just after CEO Gary Smith assured investors in December that better times were to come for the technology company. He referenced new products to meet new networking needs as well as growing international revenue. The company is a manufacturer of communications network equipment and software that counts Sprint, Virgin Media and Verizon among its customers.
