Here are several interesting bits of vendor news from the last few days that are worth a look:
Accedian has won a big contract in the Spanish-speaking world. Telefonica is deploying their network performance assurance solutions on its worldwide networks, which are of course especially dense in Spain and all of Latin America. Telefonica needed better QoS on the backhaul and metro networks that power its mobile businesses. The deal boosts Accedian's global penetration, promising some material revenue growth from the Latin American theater.
Yesterday, Infinera notched another win for the TM-Series gear it picked up with the Transmode acquisition. Along with the wireless fronthaul specialists EBlink, they are trialing both fiber and wireless solutions for Orange's 4G network in western France. The aim was to combine Infinera's WDM with EBlink's wireless fronthaul for the very last mile in a real-world network, on the road to C-RAN and other technologies designed to handle the mobile data deluge, which is just getting started.
And last week, CENX won a contract with a global backbone for its lifecycle service orchestration software. Hong Kong-based PCCW Global has picked their Cortx platform to help deliver self-serve, on-demand VPN and cloud services across multi-carrier, multi-vendor networks and reaching deep into the OSS and BSS environments as well. CENX has seen dramatic growth in its revenues since Cortx came out last year.
