An open ecosystem fosters innovation, opens up new market opportunities, and accelerates the development and adoption of disruptive technologies through a community of trust. Ciena’s mission to preserve the open, multi-vendor approach that the industry increasingly embraces. As a customer, you benefit from flexible ‘choice’. You can select best-of-breed technologies and solutions that best suit your specific business needs. We showcase our commitment to open collaboration at both the company and industry levels.
The Blue Planet Community and DevOps Exchange bring together domain expertise and partnerships across a multitude of areas to help accelerate network transformation—enabled by Ciena’s Blue Planet platform for intelligent networking and automation. And we’re an active participant in industry-wide open source initiatives. As experts in both network infrastructure, NFV management, and orchestration domains, we anticipate making significant contributions to these communities by sharing our ideas, knowledge, and best practices.
"It's the technologies that enable the greatest degree of choice for customers that will win"
