CONCORD, CA – March 6, 2019 – LightRiver, the premier optical network integration solution provider for next generation, multi-vendor, Factory Built Networks® and netFLEX®, Transport Domain Orchestration Software solutions, announces today that it was recognized as an award recipient in the 2019 Lightwave Innovation Reviews program for netFLEX and its Optical Waves Intent Based Networking (IBN) solution, in the SDN/NFV Technology category.
With LightRiver’s netFLEX and Waves IBN, 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. Control automation options are then presented to restore service. “On behalf of the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, I would like to congratulate our honorees,” said Lightwave Group Publisher Alan Bergstein. “This prestigious program allows Lightwave to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and solutions in the optical networking industry. Our 2019 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact.”
“It is with much excitement that LightRiver accepts this award for netFLEX and our innovative Optical Waves Intent Based Networking solution,” comments Travis Ewert, Chief Operating Officer, LightRiver Software. “With netFLEX and our Optical Waves IBN solution, we provide programmability and automation of real-time service path, analytics overlay, and control automation to detect, test, and remediate issues as they occur, proving to be one of the most unique SDN offerings in the industry today.” Presented annually by Lightwave, the Lightwave Innovation Reviews program distinguishes top products and solutions available within the optical networking industry as determined by a stellar panel of third-party judges. Judges include industry executives and analysts from a wide variety of service providers, technology developers, industry analysts, and journalists.
