Concord, CA – July 14, 2020 – LightRiver, the premier optical network integration solution provider for next generation, multi-vendor, Factory Built Networks® and netFLEX® Optical Domain Orchestration and Control Software solutions, announces today that it has been recognized as a finalist for the 2020 Pipeline Innovation Awards in the ‘Innovations in Assurance’ category for LightRiver’s intelligent Factory Built Network (iFBN)TM solution.
Pipeline’s ‘Innovations in Assurance’ category recognizes innovations designed to secure and protect service provider and enterprise operations, networks, infrastructure, content services, management systems, services, and end-users from error, malice, fraud, intrusion, data vulnerabilities, and other potentially harmful activities.
The iFBN and netFLEX software bundle ensures that the right visibility, analytics, and accountability are baselined within the pre-existing LightRiver Factory Built Network offering. In order to capture all critical network data at time of network Factory Build in an ideal environment, the process utilizes netFLEX Analytics, which also captures the data again at the completion of field installation and proactively after, once in service.
“Following our 2019 Pipeline Runner-Up award received for our netFLEX® Optical Assurance Automation solution in this same category, LightRiver is very excited to once again be recognized as a finalist; this time for our iFBN solution,” comments Travis Ewert, Chief Operating Officer for LightRiver. “We pride ourselves on pushing the envelope, keeping a strong focus on our customers and the industry, and our iFBN solution does just that; it’s a true baseline for performance.”
Earlier this year, LightRiver’s iFBN solution received recognition in the 2020 Lightwave Innovation Reviews, noted as a High-Score Recipient in the Field Test Equipment category.
