LightRiver Labs was designed and established to be a multi-vendor, multi-technology proving ground to take the guessing out of the equation; where trial-and-error doesn’t impact a customer’s live mission-critical network during the design process.
Established more than 12 years ago, LightRiver Labs is a multiple-million dollar, state-of-the-art facility where all the latest next generation equipment, solutions and services are put through the rigors of mission-critical simulation, along with past generations of network equipment we still routinely find operating in our customer environments. Our facility gives customers a safe environment to test, integrate and migrate IP/MPLS, Carrier-Ethernet, all flavors of WDM, Packet Optical, Microwave, Wireless Backhaul, Multi-Service SONET and more… – these technologies pass through LightRiver Labs before they reach your network.
