Lifecycle Service Orchestration Solutions for Mobile, Wireline, and Cloud Data Center Service Providers
CENX is a new-generation software company delivering Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) solutions that automate the entire lifecycle of advanced data services in next-generation virtualized (NFV), and software-defined networks (SDN) infrastructures. CENX’s vision is to revolutionize the way that service providers build and manage their advanced data networking services by fusing big data analytics, deep networking expertise, and leading-edge computing technologies.
Our CENX Customers
Service providers today are dealing with massive increases in the volume and velocity of data and demands for higher quality always-on services. The only way to meet those challenges is to radically change their network operations. With CENX’s LSO solutions, mobile, wireline, and cloud data center service providers worldwide are able to drive service agility, assure service quality, and reduce operational costs.
History of Innovation
In 2009, CENX started as a Carrier Ethernet Neutral Exchange. In order to serve its Exchange customers, CENX developed software to automate the manual and time-consuming processes of ordering, provisioning, monitoring, and assuring data connectivity services. We evolved that networking expertise into best-in-class software, and in 2012 pivoted to focus on providing LSO software solutions to service providers.
