LightRiver’s Alien Aware Networking Selected as Finalist in the 2021 Pipeline Innovation Awards

 LightRiver’s newest solution is recognized for ‘Innovation in Customer Experience’

Adding to its impressive list of industry awards, LightRiver announced this week that it has been selected as a semi-finalist for the 2021 Pipeline Innovation Awards in the ‘Customer Experience’ category for its new ‘Alien Aware Networking‘ solution.

LightRiver’s Alien Aware Networking™ solution embraces alien wavelengths allowing them to be readily monitored, analyzed, and managed end-to-end, no matter what suppliers or technologies are leveraged within a single network operator, or across multiple interconnected operator networks. This is possible via Multi-Vendor, Multi-Technology, Open Optical network automation enabled by netFLEX. LightRiver services and software allow network operators to now embrace the benefits of alien waves without the shortcomings that exist currently.

“LightRiver has essentially bridged the gap by ‘enabling visibility and control of Alien Waves’,” comments Travis Ewert, COO of LightRiver Software. “The Alien Aware Networking offering supports the engineering, lab test and evaluation for Open Optical network design and deployments. Further, our netFLEX automation platform allows operators to activate, validate and assure the health and performance of these disaggregated networks including all Alien Waves as exposed through comprehensive UI/UX and API Frameworks.”

“The Pipeline Innovation Awards have continually recognized the leading innovators that are transforming the industry, and the world, with the most significant technical advancements,” states Scott St. John, managing editor of Pipeline. “We are happy to see LightRiver once again recognized for its innovations in the 2021 Pipeline Innovation Awards program, and applaud the company’s ongoing advancements and contributions to the progress of the global landscape.”

The annual Pipeline Innovation Awards have provided the most credible recognition of technical innovation in the industry over the last decade. Each year, the Innovation Awards program receives hundreds of nominations, which are distributed to a select number of semi-finalists, who compete across more than 10 categories of technical innovation. Contestants submit extensive evaluation information to validate their innovation, which is objectively scored across over 20 different aspects of technical innovation. This information is provided to an esteemed judging panel consisting of key executives who leverage technology to advance the way we work, live, play and communicate as globally-connected.  The Judges exclusively select the most innovative competitor in each category.

Earlier this year, LightRiver’s Alien Aware Networking solution also received recognition in the 2021 Lightwave Innovation Reviews, noted as a High-Score Recipient in SDN/NFV Technology category.
