As the beginning of the third quarter (and halfway mark of 2019!) begins, LightRiver is reflecting on our latest recognitions and accolades. The awards received, events attended and announcements made have made this a most exciting time for our team.. Today, we reflect on our netFLEX® ‘trifecta’ of award wins including, PTC’s Best Intelligence Innovation Award, 2019 Lightwave Innovation Reviews for best SDN/NFV Technology and Pipeline’s Innovation Reviews.
PTC’19 Best Intelligence Innovation Award
To kick start the year, LightRiver had the pleasure of accepting PTC’s Best Intelligence Innovation award for our netFLEX® and Waves Intent Based Networking (IBN). Mike Jonas, LightRiver President of Global Customer Operations, and Travis Ewert, COO, were onsite and able to accept the prestigious award while attending the awards gala. The 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.
Lightwave Innovation Reviews
In March, netFLEX® won again, but this time in the SDN/NFV Technology category for Lightwave’s Innovation Reviews. LightRiver’s netFLEX and Waves IBN provides a single UI-click or API-call against the customer’s circuit initiates the netFLEX Circuit Analysis ToolTM (CAT) to automatically determine the service path from ‘active inventory,’ and automatically retrieves critical information for each node, presenting a single-analysis-view and most probable isolation for remediation.
Pipeline Innovation Reviews
Last, but certainly not least, came Pipeline’s 2019 Innovation Reviews, where our netFLEX® platform was recognized as runner-up in the ‘Innovations in Assurance’ category. LightRiver was one of just 16 finalists across all award categories and 270+ nominees!
To sum it up, LightRiver has had a banner year and we’re only getting started! To learn more about our advancements thus far in 2019, be sure to watch our latest JSA TV interview from ITW 2019.
