OFC/NFOEC 2010: Ciena's New Look
Ciena had gotten the faceplate done earlier, obviously, for use once the acquisition of Nortel's Metro Ethernet Networks assets closed -- which it did, on Friday. (See Ciena Closes Nortel MEN Purchase and Ciena/Nortel Product Plans Revealed.)
Ciena's exhibit is housed in a trailer that got driven onto the show floor. The trailer gets trucked around the country for customer demos, so plopping it into the exhibit floor is a cheap way to fill a booth. Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and Infinera Corp. (Nasdaq: INFN) have trailers at the show, too, so it's a battle of big wheels.
I haven't snapped a picture of the trailers here, but you can get the idea from this pic of the Ciena trailer from Supercomm.
