In case you didn't notice, we did a little freshening up of the community. It's part of a larger "people first" theme that was also applied to Ciena's corporate website and other collateral. Tell us what you think about it in the comments of this blogpost.


Just a reminder that there's is still time to attend the back-to-school educational webinar, which is available for those who wish to learn more about the 6500.

Helen Xenos posted some additional details in New Optical Technologies - Explained by Ciena experts. Read more here.
