Cramer cuts through the glitz and glamor of CES to find the best investments in the tech boom, with Gary Smith, Ciena Corporation president/CEO.

Telecommunications equipment maker Ciena is a great play on the mobile Internet tsunami, Cramer said Monday, because smart phones and other devices are creating enormous demand for faster transmission of data.

Based in Linthicum, Md., Ciena sells high-capacity optical transport and ethernet switching gear to telecom carriers and cable operators, Cramer explained. In other words, it essentially provides the physical infrastructure for the Web.

To help you better understand Ciena's business, Cramer welcomed CEO Gary Smith onto "Mad Money." Watch the video to see the full interview.
