A Message from NEF Partner, Ciena
As many of you are already aware, Nortel has decided to exit the Optical and Carrier Ethernet markets placing their MEN business up for sale. In addition, last week’s news of Nortel filing for bankruptcy protection has left a number of customers concerned about the long-term viability of Nortel optical platforms used to light their business-critical networks. For those enterprises concerned about the development roadmap and support for their current Nortel 5200 products, Ciena is offering a comprehensive migration program. For a time, Ciena is offering Nortel 5200 customers an upgrade plan, which includes both incentives and a full suite of services to support a transition plan including design, turn up and test, decommissioning and disposal, and maintenance and management. Customers who require a slower paced migration plan can contact NEF to discuss Ciena’s custom Nortel 5200 services that are now available through Ciena’s Global Network Services Team.
