Richardson, Texas (PRWEB) August 26, 2015
iPhotonix, an industry innovation leader for the optical access and network functions virtualization, cloud transformation and fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) technologies, today announced that it was selected as one of the 20 Most Promising SDN Solution Providers for 2015 by CIOReview, the leading magazine for innovative enterprise solutions.
CIOReview’s annual list of top Software Defined Networks (SDN) providers is selected by a panel of experts and members of CIOReview’s editorial board to recognize and promote technology entrepreneurship and excellence. iPhotonix was selected for its innovative optical access solutions combined with the agile and secure management and orchestration platform (MANO). The iPhotonix Virtual Network (iVN) MANO platform delivers virtual network functions (VNFs) efficiently, securely and cost effectively and manages all network elements.
“iPhotonix is leading the innovation in the optical access, using SDN and NFV tools and advocating the openness of optical networks, and we are happy to showcase them this year due to their continuing excellence in delivering top-notch SDN solutions,” said Jeevan George, Managing Editor, CIOReview. “iPhotonix continues its advancement in the SDN space, benefiting its customers around the globe, and we’re excited to have them featured on our top companies’ list.”
The iVN platform provides scalable, secure and agile delivery of enterprise and cloud-based applications. Its tools not only enable communication service providers to more quickly create network services to expand their revenue streams, but also to reduce time and costs of developing and managing those services. The iVN platform offers functions such as performance monitoring, firewalls and end-device management that run on lower cost commodity hardware than the typical expensive and complex proprietary equipment. For communication service providers, managed services are crucial today when trends such as mobility, big data, social networks, and cloud computing are an increasing demand from customers.
“iPhotonix is extremely excited to be recognized by CIOReview’s panel of experts and thought leaders,” said Jeff Mulqueen, Vice President of Sales and Business Development, iPhotonix. “The recognition further demonstrates our company's thought leadership and success in the network virtualization and operations orchestration, which is enabled by our use of the best SDN and NFV technology.”
The industry's transition to SDN and NFV is a strategic element to the selection criteria for both enterprise and communication service providers as they evaluate future network architectures. iPhotonix solutions enables service providers to deploy and orchestrate these network services in an NFV environment, which is increasingly important and in some cases vital for their success.
