For today’s networks, survival of the fittest means survival of the most adaptive.

Ciena is partnering with you to tackle one of your biggest challenges: network complexity.  Together we are building networks that grow smarter and more agile as they take on more complexity.   

Want to make the next big breakthrough in adaptive networking? Join us at our next customer and partner hackathon in Atlanta, June 18 – 22.

This exclusive event offers you the chance to:

  • Collaborate with Ciena’s onsite Blue Planet experts who can help bring your orchestration project to the finish line.
  • Network with your peers, other service providers, and our partner community to learn how they’re leveraging Blue Planet Orchestration.
  • Improve your Blue Planet development skills.
