Community Tip

This week's tip is to read the Ciena Community's rules of engagement. Every community has a culture and we feel pretty strongly about the behavior and activities we encourage and those we discourage in ours. Our community guidelines are a direct reflection of our core values: Customer first. Integrity. Velocity. Innovation. Outstanding people.
