Managed Inventory

With 25 years of focus on transport networking, LightRiver has the facilities, processes, and logistical relationships to procure and process the leading products produced for mission critical networks. This is all with privileged access to technology, products, pricing, delivery, support, and training, to increase supply chain visibility, efficiency, and usability.

To further speed the deployment of critical networks, reduce risk, avoid duplicative costs, and enhance overall quality, LightRiver has developed a Managed Inventory (MI) product specifically for the needs of packet optical transport network operators. These focused tools optimize and streamline the supply chain, reduce overhead, and improve scale.

LightRiver Managed Inventory recognizes the custom needs of packet optical network operators and related Original Equipment Manufacturers and acts upon those needs. With a specialized, carrier-grade, DWDM, DCI, Coherent Pluggable, MPLS and Carrier Ethernet portfolio, we offer a one-stop shop for access to, and leverage with, the leading global OEMs, providing a single contract entity for the complete solutions demanded by our business partners, but without the logistics generalist reality that many value-added distributors have naturally developed.

Simplify your supply chain with LightRiver Managed Inventory Solutions, developed by the packet optical integration expert for the network platforms and markets you care about.

As network operators embrace digital transformation and network disaggregation, streamlined and specialized supply chain solutions become critical to predictably enabling business success.
