Incorporated in Delaware in November 1992, Ciena’s founding
mission was to radically change the economics of telecommunications networks.
Initially, the company significantly advanced innovation by pioneering Dense
Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology as ameans to split light
across fiber optic lines, thereby enabling the transport of greater volumes of
information such as voice, video and data across communications networks. This
technology breakthrough propelled Ciena to rapid success, leading service
providers like Sprint and Worldcom to deploy Ciena’s solutions throughout their
nationwide networks in the 1990’s. It also led to Ciena’s initial public
offering in February 1997, during which the company achieved a market
capitalization of $3.4 billion—the largest first-day market capitalization of
any venture-funded startup company to that date.
