21st November 2017—Ottawa, Canada— CENX, a global leader in next generation service assurance software, was presented the “Third Network Technology Solutions – Service Assurance” award in recognition of the company’s MEF compliant namesake network data and visualization solution at the MEF 2017 Awards ceremony in Orlando, FL.

The MEF 2017 Awards program recognizes service, application, technology, and professional excellence in the global Third Network community. The MEF Awards is the largest global awards program focused on high-performance carrier ethernet services and emerging Third Network services powered by LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), NFV, SDN, and CE 2.0 networking technologies.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized as the leading service assurance software provider at the heralded MEF Awards, which has long been viewed as one of the top award organizations in the telecommunications industry,” said Edward Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer at CENX.  “The CENX team has worked diligently to understand the needs of the service provider community and develop a solution that not only solves their unique challenges, but scales as their networks grow. This award is a testament to this company’s dedication to its customer base.”

This award adds to a momentous year for CENX. In February, CENX announced the addition of Tier 1 customer, Verizon, which selected CENX to provide the tools to deliver a unified view of the state of physical and virtual components across multiple systems and data centers. CENX has earned several awards in 2017, including winning the Leading Lights award for “Outstanding Digital Enablement.”

“CENX provides extreme value to service providers with real-time, actionable data for a wide array of technologies,” said Michael Howard, Senior Research Director, Carrier Networks at IHS Technology. “Navigating complex systems like, NFV, SDN, OSS, BSS, SON, 5G and others can be an arduous task. The CENX software facilitates simplified network operations by integrating all network data into an easy-to-navigate dashboard which ultimately allows operators to pinpoint and address faults, optimize capacity and identify areas of opportunity. CENX is a viable solution for those looking to launch new margin-rich NFV services while materially lowering operational costs.”

The latest version of the software, CENX 7, breaks down the barriers between virtual and hybrid network infrastructure and delivers guaranteed service quality through the enablement of closed-loop assurance automation. With CENX 7 service providers rapidly deliver and cost-effectively manage complex services over physical, virtual and hybrid networks.
