Light Reading, the market-leading online news source to the global telecom industry, released the list of finalists for their 2016 Leading Lights Awards. Of the record 300+ submissions, we’re proud to announce that CENX’s Exanova Service Intelligence has been shortlisted for the Leading Lights Award for Most Innovative NFV Product Strategy (Vendor).
What’s our industry-leading NFV strategy? It’s to provide service providers with end-to-end orchestrated service assurance and management for their networks with our Exanova Service Intelligence software. However, that’s not as simple as it sounds. Such a strategy is in great demand since Exanova solves the complex challenges service providers face when integrating a disruptive technology such as NFV into their day-to-day network operations.
With Exanova, service providers can rapidly deploy and assure differentiated, revenue-generating services over hybrid physical and NFV infrastructure, allowing them to deliver the high quality of experience their customers expect, and leveraging their existing network investment. Now that’s an innovative proposition! No need to swivel chair between multiple legacy OSS and new MANO systems – Exanova continuously collects data from various sources, across physical and hybrid networks, correlating the data, and analyzing KPIs, to deliver actionable intelligence to the operator user through an easy-to-use graphical interface or automated workflow.
Of note, the value of Exanova Service Intelligence was also cited by globally-regarded analyst firm, Analysys Mason, in its recent profile of CENX: “[Exanova’s] real-time data and predictive analytics capabilities are critical for automated orchestration of dynamic NFV/SDN networks.”
The winners of the Leading Lights Awards will be announced on May 23rd, in Austin, Texas, the evening before the Big Communications Event kicks off. See you there!
