Ciena's Comment on Competitors and Industry Peers

Competition among communications network solution vendors remains intense. The markets in which we compete are characterized by rapidly advancing technologies, introduction of new networking solutions and intense selling efforts to displace incumbent vendors and to capture market share. Successfully competing in these markets is based on any one or a combination of the following factors:

product functionality, speed, capacity, scalability and performance;
price and total cost of ownership of our solutions;
incumbency and existing business relationships;

ability to offer comprehensive networking solutions, consisting of equipment, software and network consulting services;
product development plans and the ability to meet customers' immediate and future network requirements;
flexibility and openness of platforms, including ease of integration, interoperability and integrated management;
manufacturing and lead-time capability; and
services and support capabilities.

In this intense and fragmented competitive environment, securing new opportunities often requires that we agree to unfavorable commercial terms or pricing and other onerous contractual commitments that place a disproportionate allocation of risk upon us as the vendor. These terms can adversely affect our results of operations.

Competition for sales of communications networking solutions is dominated by a small number of very large, multi-national companies. Our competitors include Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Fujitsu, Huawei, Juniper Networks, and ZTE. Many of these competitors have substantially greater financial, operational and marketing resources than Ciena, significantly broader product offerings or more extensive customer bases. We expect our competitive landscape to broaden and competition to increase as network technologies, features and layers continue to converge and networks come under unified software management and control. As these changes occur, and requirements for software programmability and network function virtualization increase, we expect to compete with a broader group of vendors offering their own network architectural approaches. We expect that we may increasingly compete with IP router vendors, system integrators and information technology and software vendors, as well as suppliers of networking technology traditionally geared toward different network users, layers or functions.

We also continue to compete with several smaller, but established, companies that offer one or more products that compete directly or indirectly with our offerings or whose products address specific niches within the markets and customer segments we address. These competitors include ADVA, BTI, Cyan, Coriant, ECI, Infinera, RAD and Transmode. In addition, there are a variety of earlier-stage companies with products targeted at specific segments of the communications networking market. These competitors often employ aggressive competitive and business tactics as they seek to gain entry to certain customers or markets. Due to these practices and the narrower focus of their development efforts, these competitors may be able to develop and introduce products more quickly, or offer commercial terms that are more attractive to customers.
