LightRiver Wins Editor's Choice in Pipeline Innovation Awards

LightRiver Receives “Editor’s Choice” Accolade As Overall Winner In The 2022 Pipeline Innovation Awards

LightRiver, the premier optical network integration solution provider for next generation, multi-vendor, Factory Built Networks® and netFLEX® Transport Domain Orchestration and Control Software solutions, announces today it has received the Editor’s Choice Award in the 2022 Pipeline Innovation Awards for its Software Defined Waves (SD-WAVES) solution. Pipeline’s “Editor’s Choice” award is granted to the company that Pipeline feels “best embodies innovation.”

SD-WAVES was introduced by LightRiver as a next generation Optical VPN offering supporting private transport networks to include Open Optical (network disaggregation for multi-vendor and multi-technology). The solution provides an advanced UI/UX framework that is extended beyond the traditional desktop to that of mobility, apps, and broader devices. SD-WAVES fundamentally changes the industry norm for traditional Network and Element Management Systems (NMS/EMS), which target technical resources, reflect a ‘technician-at the-NOC’ desktop experience and vendor-specific complexity. Powered by netFLEX, SD-WAVES introduces simplification to all user roles, enables device portability, mobility and user-definition of how the data, notifications and network control is achieved.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized by Pipeline as the 2022 Editor’s Choice winner for our recently launched SD-WAVES solution,” states Travis Ewert, Chief Operating Officer of LightRiver Software. “As the ‘SD-WAN of Optical Networking,’ SD-WAVES is both innovative and effective in providing personalized network management to new users, mobility, and industry firsts as an App-based platform enabling simplified experiences to customers.”

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 a globally-connected society. The Judges exclusively select the most innovative competitor in each category.

“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, earning ‘Editor’s Choice’ in the 2022 Pipeline Innovation Awards program, and applaud the team’s advancements and contributions to the progress of the global landscape.”
