Ciena’s BizConnect Partner Program

Partners are important. Finding the right partnership can optimize your success.

When identifying a technology partner we understand a lot goes into choosing correctly. You need support. You need tools. And you need the opportunity to learn more and maximize your profit potential.

We believe our BizConnect Partner Program is different. We pride ourselves on being more than a just a supplier. We focus on being a valued business partner.

Together we can create a partnership that offers you market-leading solutions, world-class training, and the tools you need to get it done.

Managed Service Provider

As a Carrier there are many challenges you face: identifying new markets, deciding which services to offer, integrating new service offerings with legacy systems, and marketing the service and training your salespeople while growing revenue and profit. Launching and maintaining these services takes work—and it takes a team. At Ciena, we think and act as an extension of your team. Across the globe we’re identifying market trends, buyer personas, and best-in-class marketing—and bringing that insight to you. By joining these together with world-class tools and our analytics services we help your team provide maximum revenue and increased profit.

Solution Provider

Not all technology is created equal and neither are all partner programs. We know that the best way to bring success to your business is to deliver world-class tools and support AND market-leading products and solutions. Ciena’s Solution Provider Partner Program for VAR (Value Added Reseller), SI (System Integrator) and Distributor partners, focuses on bringing that to you. We offer automated tools, marketing, and training resources—making it easy to drive programs and give you flexibility and self-sufficiency; that way your priority can always be meeting your business goals.


Ciena’s alliance program provides certified assurance and integration with industry-leading solutions. It’s a great way for you to focus on your business and worry less about the technology that runs it.
