LightRiver’s SD-WAVES is High-Score Recipient for the 2022 Lightwave Innovation Reviews
Another well deserved honoree status achievement by LightRiver! Today, the company announced that its Software Defined Waves (SD-WAVES) solution was recognized among the best by the 2022 Lightwave Innovation Reviews , achieving a 4.0 score in the SDN/NFV Technology category.
LightRiver’s SD-WAVES fundamentally changes the industry norm for traditional Network and Element Management Systems (NMS/EMS) which target technical resources, reflect a ‘technician-at the-NOC’ desktop experience and vendor-specific complexity. Powered by netFLEX, SD-WAVES introduces simplification to all user roles, enables a multi-platform experience and user-definition of how the data, notifications and network control is achieved. As an outcome of the pandemic, the new expectation reflects a mobile Work-from-Anywhere ‘Apps experience,’ all of which are expected to be self-serve for end users. SD-WAVES addresses this strategic evolution and introduces many industry firsts for Managed Optical Services.
“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.”
