Ciena has entered into an agreement to acquire privately-held DonRiver, a global software and services company specializing in federated network and service inventory management solutions within the service provider OSS environment. 

DonRiver will bring new capabilities to Ciena’s Blue Planet software and services portfolio that significantly enhance the company’s ability to deliver on its Adaptive Network vision through intelligent, closed-loop automation. Specifically, with the addition of DonRiver’s federated network and service inventory management solutions, Ciena’s Blue Planet capabilities will extend beyond network orchestration and control to also provide a unified inventory view of all elements across a provider’s network. Additionally, the DonRiver team of specialized OSS software, integration and consulting experts will complement and scale the Blue Planet organization to form a truly unique and specialized services group that is able to manage modernization projects across both IT and network operations. 

Rick Hamilton, SVP of Global Software and Services, Ciena
The combination of Blue Planet and DonRiver will enhance our ability to deliver closed loop automation of network services and the underlying operational processes across IT/operations and the network.
