2021 Pipeline Innovation Awards Winner for Alien Aware Networking™ Solution and Runner-Up for “Editor’s Choice” Award
LightRiver’s ‘Alien Aware Networking’ solution picked up more industry recognition yesterday with its win in the 2021 Pipeline Innovation Awards for the ‘Customer Experience’ category.
LightRiver’s Alien Aware Networking™ solution enables network disaggregation as a collaboration with leading OEM’s, Service Providers, and large Network Operators to design, lab validate, deploy, and automate Open Optical networking solutions at scale. This is possible via LightRiver’s Multi-Vendor and Multi-Technology Innovation Labs in Concord, CA, and Holmdel, NJ, as well as Open Optical network automation enabled by netFLEX. LightRiver services and software allow the industry to now embrace the benefits of network disaggregation working closely with industry leading suppliers and operators to remove operational complexity, eliminate vendor lock-in, drive significant cost avoidance, enable end-to-end automation, and improve the overall Customer Experience life-cycle.
“LightRiver is thrilled to be recognized as the winner in Pipeline’s esteemed awards program for innovation in Customer Experience,” comments Travis Ewert, COO of LightRiver Software. “We have essentially bridged the gap by ‘enabling visibility and control of Alien Waves’ by positioning our labs, engineering and deployment services, and the netFLEX automation platform to tackle the complexities of Open Optical across Multi-Vendor and Multi-Technology. Through close partnering with our Network Operator and Vendor partners, we are embracing network disaggregation and opening new networking possibilities together.”
In September 2021, LightRiver’s Alien Aware Networking™ solution achieved finalist award winner status in Light Reading Leading Light Awards’ “Outstanding Test & Measurement Vendor” category; and earlier in March 2021, Alien Aware Networking was recognized as a high-score recipient for the 2021 Lightwave Innovation Reviews.
