Blog Post created by margarita.giraldo Employee on Nov 7, 2016

Hello fellow community members! Hopefully, everyone had a safe and restful weekend. We set the clocks back an hour in the US, so I know some of us are feeling (confused? refreshed?) by the time changes. That being said, there are a couple of news tidbits to share below, so let's get started.


If you have any suggestions on things you'd like to see more (or less) of, please feel free to share with Margarita Giraldo or post in About the Ciena Community




Hello and welcome to the newest members of our community! Meet Michael Barnes,  Jorge Castro, Hrvoje Cvetkovic, Susan Koleff, Ihab MahnaWilliam McGuire, Richard Miyares,  Satish kumar Narayanasamy andPatrick Py! We're glad you're all here and look forward to hearing from you! We'd love to learn more about you and your role and invite you to say hello.



There has definitely been an uptick in questions lately which is great to see! Don't forget to mark a reply as "correct" or "helpful."  As more information is shared in the community, we want to make sure the correct information is easily found. The "Mark as Helpful" or "Mark as Correct" features are, well, helpful for this.
