netFLEX® Release 4.3.0 Highlights Automation Advancements in Support of Open Optical Solutions and NextGen Waves Platforms
LightRiver continues to expand support of the transport technologies that are reshaping how operators build and operate networks, and just announced its latest netFLEX platform release 4.3.0. netFLEX 4.3.0 expands upon its industry leading multi-vendor support for DWDM Open Line, NextGen DCI/Waves platforms, and Packet Edge transport, all of which support realtime inventory, programmable analytics, and control automation. This next generation of multi-vendor architecture results in a new level of service complexity, such as with implementations of Alien Waves, Spectrum-as-a-Service, 5G-Sliced-Transport, and Network-as-a-Service, all of which require a new level of automation to simplify and standardize the customer experience.
netFLEX 4.3.0 continues to broaden support for wavelength services across the leading OEM DWDM/OTN network elements by adding increased support for Fixed, CD-Flex, CDC-Flex grid environments, as netFLEX is leveraged by multiple Tier 1 wireline, wireless, and DC/Exchange network operators at scale. Whether the application is large scale aggregation, Data Center Interconnect, or longhaul services, netFLEX provides full life-cycle automation across standardized UI and API frameworks for the leading network technology suppliers.
“As the transport network is quickly evolving toward Open, Disaggregated, Plug-and-Play architectures, end-to-end network management is more critical than ever. 2020 has been a break-out year of innovation, as seen by vast advancement of new network elements and automation services supported across Open Optical and NextGen Waves solutions,” states Travis Ewert, COO of LightRiver. “The most exciting part is witnessing our customers leverage this automation to realize tens of millions in cost avoidance, introduce industry firsts for Waves Automation and AI-Ops, and truly deliver better employee and end-customer experiences.”
