It is with great excitement that we share the news of LightRiver winning the Best Network Intelligence Innovation award at PTC’19 for our netFLEX® and Waves Intent Based Networking (IBN)! The prestigious industry award recognizes the most outstanding innovation in network intelligence, e.g., SD-WAN, “smart data” performance analysis and fault detection, or bandwidth autoscaling driven by cloud orchestration.
Mike Jonas, LightRiver President of Global Customer Operations was honored to accept the award at the PTC’19 Innovation Awards Gala, alongside LightRiver COO Travis Ewert.
When a service impact in the optical transport domain occurs today, technician time and understanding to resolve is excessive and reactive. The tech must determine service-path (from static OSS or disparate EMS’), nodes traversed, familiarity with all nodes involved to login/run troubleshooting commands to isolate and resolve the issue. This can take 20-30 minutes, requires vast understanding of the technologies involved, and occurs ‘much after the fact.’
With LightRiver’s netFLEX® and Waves Intent Based Networking (IBN), a single UI-click or API-call against the customer’s circuit initiates netFLEX Circuit Analysis ToolTM (CAT) to automatically determine the service path from ‘active inventory,’ automatically retrieves critical information for each node, presents a single-analysis-view, and most probable isolation for remediation. Control automation options are then presented to restore service. To learn more about our award-winning netFLEX, visit our dedicated site.
