Carrier Ethernet edge and aggregation provider Overture is teaming with Cyan, which sells packet-optical transport solutions to give operators “the best possible tools to plan, build, operate and verify Carrier Ethernet networks,” they say.
The two decided to formalize a working relationship following completion of several customer engagements in which they both were involved to deliver interoperability for G.8032 Ethernet protection switching and MEF E-Line and E-LAN services. These deployments then led to the integration of the Overture 4200, 4300, 24 and 26 edge devices into Cyan’s CyPlan, CyMS and CyPortal that make up the Cyan 360 solution. The two companies now are focused on integrating additional Overture solutions into the Cyan 360 management suite. ??
“Service providers are asking for an integrated solution for the edge, aggregation and metro networks that offers simple service management and visibility into the performance of the services they are delivering,” explains Overture CEO Jeff Reedy. “Cyan offers an excellent management solution to plan, operate and verify network operations along with a very strong packet-optical solution for business services and mobile backhaul. Overture and Cyan are committed to integrating all our products into Cyan 360 management suite to help service providers build and maintain world-class Carrier Ethernet networks.”
