Ensemble Connector Wins 2017 Telecoms World Award


Innovation Award Recognizes Software-Based Virtualization Platform Utilized in Verizon's uCPE Service

Dubai, UAE. September 22, 2017. ADVA Optical Networking today announced that its Ensemble Connector has won the 2017 Telecoms World Award for vendor innovation. Ensemble Connector, the high-performance software hosting platform for virtual network functions (VNFs), was recognized at the winners' ceremony in Dubai for its openness and simplicity. By employing the Ensemble Connector, communication service providers (CSPs) are able to avoid vendor lock-in and deploy best-in-class software for VNFs. The solution provides operational simplicity and streamlines deployment. ADVA Optical Networking's NFV technology has already been successfully deployed in a number of CSP networks, including Verizon's new universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) offering.

"We're delighted that our Ensemble Connector won the Telecoms World Award for vendor innovation. This accolade validates the hard work of everyone in our virtualization team. It confirms that our NFV strategy of delivering flexibility, efficiency and agility to CSPs is resonating with the industry," said Prayson Pate, CTO, Ensemble Division, ADVA Optical Networking. "What makes us stand out is that we offer CSPs the opportunity to leverage virtualization, automation and orchestration as tools to create, activate nd assure dynamic new services. As we continue to innovate with cloud-native networking solutions, it's exciting to see that a panel of independent analysts recognizes the powerful network transformation that comes with deploying our NFV technology."

Ensemble Connector enables CSPs to use VNFs from a variety of suppliers and thereby offers CSPs unrivalled choice - choice of hardware, software and deployment location. It delivers operational simplicity and streamlines deployment through a set of embedded management and automation tools. CSPs can unleash new service innovation instantly, explore experimental service offerings and create try-before-you-buy programs for new dynamic services. Using NFV orchestration, operators can provision multi-tenancy VNFs for maximum utilization and optimized cost efficiency on an Ensemble Connector-enabled server already residing on the carrier's network.

"I'm very proud that our Ensemble Connector is continuing to win so much industry acclaim. The demand to move from hardware-based services to software-based, cloud-native solutions is growing by the day and is only going to accelerate," said Stephan Rettenberger, SVP, marketing and investor relations, ADVA Optical Networking. "Ensemble Connector is an important enabling technology for CSPs to provide their customers with a simple, rapid installation experience and enables them to securely deploy multiple software-based services on a single uCPE installation. With operators like Verizon, Masergy and DartPoints already utilizing our Ensemble products to provide agile, cost-efficient services, we're showing the world that our technology delivers the promise of NFV today."
