Opening the Opportunities of the On-Demand Ecosystem

garysmithCiena became North America’s largest supplier of packet-optical networking solutions when it combined with Nortel’s Metro Ethernet Networks business in 2010. After seeing numerous acquisitions of this size fail to deliver their full potential, some industry observers were skeptical that the newly combined company could survive, let alone thrive, in a changing market.

However, under the leadership of CEO Gary B. Smith, Ciena has indeed thrived with profitable growth that is outpacing the market. Today, with revenue of $2.3 billion and #1 market share in North America and #2 worldwide, Ciena’s success is largely driven by its ability to recognize new opportunities created by IT and telecom evolving together toward an open, on-demand ecosystem.

Join Gary Smith, the featured speaker at the ITAC Board of Governors Dinner, as he addresses those opportunities and their impact on Canada’s IT communities.
