Did you try to get in touch with Ciena people? I'm sure they will be 
comprehensive about how you get their products (not being exactly a 
customer).
You could maybe even get an access to products' documentation without 
providing S/N:

I didn't try myself, but I guess getting the full documentation is worth it.

We've swapped out a 427 so that we can rebuild it, push it back into the network, and repeat, until everything is under our control.

I got them to grudgingly provide the documentation for the customer premise devices (LightningEdge 47's), but my pleas for the switch documentation (and the management software that I believe WWP provided for free) has fallen on deaf ears.  I don't have the budget to blow on a support contract just to get one default password (Who would?).
