Despite weather typical of Ottawa, Canada this time of year, global optical networking specialist, Optelian, held an impressive event attended by a number of dignitaries within the Ottawa community.

Optelian threw the February 27th event to highlight and celebrate 10 years of growth and innovation, as well as a customer-centric philosophy that has served the company well in its decade of existence.

Optelian real-time tweeted the event so that a few of the folks unable to make the event due to the storm could share in the fun.
