The Far East is far more than the land of the rising sun, as Japan has long been a hub of innovation. Tokyo serves as the nation’s epicenter, with a population of more than eight million this expanding city is growing, and so too are its businesses.
Ciena announced the unveiling of a newer, larger office in Tokyo aimed at supporting the exploding population and service demands, while also positioning Ciena as a key partner in the Asia Pacific region for years to come.
“With skyrocketing user demand for cloud-based services, video and mobile broadband and the volume of devices and data exploding, our clients in Japan are under intense pressure to automate and scale their networks,” said Rick Seeto, Vice President and General Manager of Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ), Ciena. “Ciena’s new office in Tokyo strengthens our ability to help our clients build more intelligent and adaptive networks that can cater to the growing digital economy.”
The new office is located in the Marunouchi neighborhood, and features an innovation lab to put its future-forward technology on display as well as collaboration rooms for Ciena customers and partners to toy with industry leading networking and software solutions. Ciena provides a sandbox to complete demonstrations and proof-of-concept trials, so that service providers and enterprises can get hands-on with exceptional technology, and guided by expertise.
“We look forward to providing the best support to our customers and partners with our new investments in Japan as we collaborate to build next-generation networks with Ciena’s market-leading technologies,” said Hiroyuki Kume, President, Ciena Japan.
We live in an on-demand, always-on, always plugged in world, and with the digital era taking hold, network requirements are on the rise. Ciena is here to ensure the adaptive network is ready for what the future holds.
