While last year seemed to be the year for Alien Aware Networking awards for LightRiver, we are continuing our award streak into 2022 with another groundbreaking solution! This year, our SD-WAVES solution has been recognized as a high-score recipient for the 2022 Lightwave Innovation Reviews.
LightRiver’s SD-WAVES is set to fundamentally change the industry norm for traditional Network and Element Management Systems (NMS/EMS). Powered by netFLEX®, SD-WAVES simplifies user roles, enables device portability and mobility, and enables user-definition of how the data, notifications, and network control is achieved. The pandemic has created a new expectation of better user experiences for all work from anywhere apps and SD-WAVES addresses the evolution of Managed Optical Services in this regard.
Submitted for the SDN/NFV Technology category, an esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the optical communications community weighed in on the decision to award LightRiver a 4.0 honoree status.
“We are thrilled for LightRiver to be a 2022 Lightwave Innovation Reviews High-Score Recipient for our newly launched SD-WAVES solution,” states Travis Ewert, Chief Operating Officer of LightRiver Software. “Network and Element Management for transport typically shows up as an afterthought when it comes to advanced User Experiences. SD-WAVES fundamentally changes this paradigm as the ‘SD-WAN of Optical Networking.’ This solution enables personalized network management to existing users, new types of users, and Service Providers as a new offering they could extend to their end customers.”
