LINTHICUM, Md. -- Ciena® Corporation (NASDAQ:CIEN), the network specialist, today announced its FiberFinder service, a unique fiber locating solution powered by NEF, one of the nation’s top telecommunications consulting firms, which offers enterprises and carriers the ability to identify available fiber resources while developing optimal network connectivity.

Today's enterprises must ensure business continuity and disaster recovery, expedite and enhance services, and enable closer collaboration between geographically-dispersed locations – all while reducing total cost of network ownership. These concerns have created new challenges for IT departments looking for resilient and flexible networks to support critical process improvements and new bandwidth-intensive applications such as virtualization, LAN extension and data replication.

In partnership with NEF, Ciena created a comprehensive service to enable enterprises to cost-effectively address these evolving network demands by reducing the fiber discovery and pricing lead times inherent in locating optimal fiber connectivity solutions. Powered by NEF’s FiberLocator™, Ciena’s FiberFinder leverages one of the largest independent databases that catalogs millions of miles of U.S. fiber optic networks covering more than 100 metro areas across the country. With data and maps encompassing metro and long-haul fiber as well as on-net locations, interconnects, LEC central offices and more, FiberFinder offers customers a valuable guide of the available fiber landscape to help achieve their connectivity needs.

“Together with Ciena, we’re empowering organizations with information that will save them time, effort and a tremendous amount of money in sourcing and deploying a communications solution,” said Michael Murphy, president of NEF. “FiberFinder is a unique service that provides enterprises the intelligence needed to design a successful fiber network end-to-end.”
