Ciena Corporation provides communications networking equipment, software, and services that support the transport, switching, aggregation, and management of voice, video, and data traffic worldwide. The company’s products are used, individually or as part of an integrated solution, in networks operated by communications service providers, cable operators, Web-scale providers, governments, enterprises, research and education institutions and other network operators. Products and Services The company’s product portfolio consists of its Converged Packet Optical, Packet Networking and Optical Transport products. The company’s product offering also includes a suite of software solutions that unify its product portfolio and provide automation, software-defined management and control features, and network function virtualization (NFV) to enable efficient service delivery. Converged Packet Optical The company’s Converged Packet Optical portfolio includes networking solutions optimized for the convergence of coherent optical transport, OTN switching and packet switching. Utilizing its coherent optical transport technology, its 6500 Packet-Optical Platform provides a flexible, scalable dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) solution that adds capacity to core, regional and metro networks and enables transport at high transmission speeds. The company’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform features its WaveLogic coherent optical processors. WaveLogic facilitates deployment over existing fiber plant (terrestrial and submarine), scales capacity to 40G, 100G and greater transmission speeds, and minimizes the need for certain network equipment, such as amplifiers, regenerators and dispersion compensating devices. The company’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform also includes certain integrated switching elements, addressing market demand for converged network features, functions and layers to drive network infrastructures. This platform, which includes various chassis sizes and a set of line cards, can be utilized from the customer premises to the metropolitan/regional core, where the need for high capacity and carrier-class performance is essential. The company’s Converged Packet Optical portfolio also includes products that provide packet switching capability to allocate network capacity efficiently and enable rapid service delivery. The company’s 5430 Reconfigurable Switching System includes a family of multi-terabit reconfigurable switching systems that utilize intelligent mesh networking to provide resiliency and feature an integrated optical control plane to automate the provisioning and bandwidth control of high-capacity services. Packet Networking The company’s Packet Networking products allow customers to deliver services to consumer and enterprise end users. These products have applications from the edge of metro and core networks, where they aggregate traffic, to the access tiers of networks where they can be deployed to support wireless backhaul infrastructures and to deliver business data services. During 2014, the company introduced its 8700 Packetwave platform, a multi-terabit packet switching platform for high-density metro networks and inter-data center wide area networks. The 8700 combines high-capacity Ethernet switching and optical transport technologies from both data center networks and metro networks, to help network operators rapidly deliver cloud-based services, streaming video, and Internet content distribution, aggregate users, and provide express connections to data centers. The Packet Networking segment has been primarily related to its 3000 family of service delivery switches and service aggregation switches, and its 5000 family of service aggregation switches. The company’s 3000 and 5000 families support the access and aggregation tiers of communications networks and have principally been deployed to support business data services and wireless backhaul infrastructures. Optical Transport The company’s Optical Transport products include stand-alone WDM and SONET/SDH-based optical transport solutions that add capacity to core, regional and metro networks and enable transport
