Ciena announced Tuesday (April 20, 2004) that it plans to close its San Jose, Calif. facility by the end of September, a move that will impact 425 employees.

Under the consolidation plan, all ongoing product development and customer support activities currently based in San Jose will be combined on a product group or functional basis with efforts in progress at other Ciena locations. For example, the company's CoreDirector-related development activities on the West Coast will now be consolidated with Ciena's CoreDirector work in Alpharetta, Ga and Linthicum, Md. On the other hand, Online-related product development will now be solely handled out of the company's Research Triangle Park, N.C. location.

The consolidation will occur over the next several fiscal quarters. Ciena said these moves will have a minimal effect on current product development efforts.
