Accedian wins MEF Excellence Award for best / most innovation “NFV-Based VCPE”

Accedian wins MEF Excellence Award in “The Third Network Technology Solution” category

The MEF announced the winners of the MEF 2015 Excellence Awards at Gen15 in Dallas, Texas. The Awards program is the largest, longest-running in the world focused on Carrier Ethernet services and applications and is the first in the industry to spotlight leadership in emerging dynamic Third Network services powered by CE 2.0, Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO), NFV, and SDN networking technologies.

The Accedian SkyLIGHT VCX Controller™, in combination with programmable smart SFP and GbE modules, combines the best of NFV and CE CPE to create a cost disruptive, highly agile vCPE solution that retains all the attributes of a CE 2.0 service. The minimum hardware required is employed at the customer site to provide full line-rate processing — that completely virtualized x86-based vCPE cannot effectively deliver — for latency sensitive functions (H-QoS, delay measurements, etc.) and for demanding service activation and test traffic generation for troubleshooting to cover the complete CE lifecycle orchestration (LSO) objective.
