Concord, Calif.- January 30, 2023
, the premier optical network integration solution provider for next generation, multi-vendor, Factory Built Networks® and netFLEX® Transport Domain Orchestration and Control Software solutions, and Precision Solutions
announce today a new strategic partnership to transform how organizations in South America can manage and view their optical network hardware regardless of their current vendor(s).
With more than 20 years of experience in South America’s market, integrating and enabling optical networks, Precision Solutions observed the customer desire for a reliable, robust, single glass pane platform to manage their optical networks.
To address these needs, Precision Solutions tapped into LightRiver’s netFLEX® solution, a network automation platform designed to address the complexities of disparate optical transport networks, suppliers, and technologies. As the only platform that enables the agnostic management of optical transport networks, netFLEX allows businesses to interrogate their optical network — their way — without vendor lock-in and inclusive of a self-serve option.
“Precision Solutions is well known as a high-quality, cost-effective integrator in the South American market, and LightRiver’s netFLEX is an essential addition to our product portfolio as it helps our customers to manage their networks effectively,” comments Eduardo Ken, CEO of Precision Solutions “The South American market, specifically Brazil, has several customer tiers. From big international players to small ISPs, all of them will benefit from the operational capacity and simplicity that only netFLEX can offer.”
“We are honored to work with Precision Solutions and expand our netFLEX offering on a greater global scale,” states Mike Jonas, President, Global Customer Operations for LightRiver. “Our award-winning netFLEX serves as an essential tool for companies worldwide, ensuring customers’ success with optical networking and management.”
The partnership between LightRiver and Precision Solutions will cover the resale and first-tier local support for netFLEX in the region. It also gives existing netFLEX customers the advantage of having the first technical support tier in its native language.
