Summary

Search Inside

Cyan's Blue Planet orchestration software and ecosystem could help Ciena as it seeks to establish itself as a software and services company in the virtualisation market, but we expect that Ciena will need to consider more investments to meet its software aspirations.

Ciena announced on 4 May 2015 that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Cyan, in a deal valued at approximately USD400 million and expected to close by 31 October 2015. The acquisition extends Ciena's established optical and transport business, and brings new assets for the Ciena Agility software division.

In this article, Senior Analyst Shanthi Ravindran discusses the implications of this acquisition for Ciena.
