LightRiver’s core mission has always been based on a multi-vendor, multi-technology, and multi-generation approach that enables our customers to select and implement best-of-breed technologies and capabilities in the most efficient manner possible.

Such an approach fosters collaboration, opens up new opportunities, and accelerates the development and adoption of disruptive technologies through a common approach.  Operators select the best-in-class technologies and solutions that best suit the specific business need, allowing each vendor to shine in their area of leadership.

LightRiver’s standards-friendly, transport focused software platform focuses on collaboration and provides packet optical equipment vendors with a carrier-grade, widely deployed and carrier-proven Network Automation platform to help integrate products into a customer network in a matter of weeks (as an SDN reference model Optical Domain Controller or end-2-end Network Management System).

LightRiver Software’s experienced and agile engineering team has developed the netFLEX software into a robust network automation platform. This allows the ability to quickly deploy the latest supplier network element without having to deploy another vendor-specific management system. The main driver behind these automations is to provide an operator of any size – the ability to automate end-2-end network automation of legacy, current, and disagg/open source transport networks for realtime service path understanding (network-as-source inventory), actionable analytics, and provisioning automations (enabler for control-loop). netFLEX is the only Optical Domain Controller (ODC) solution that addresses full life-cycle of the service automation from service instantiation, to proactive management, to automated analytics/visibility, in a flexible way that is unmatched within the industry (netFLEX = networkFLEXIBILITY).

LightRiver maintains direct relationships with the industry’s leading transport suppliers, to include those focused on whitebox/disagg solutions. These tight partnerships allow for an industry differentiated level of automation and integration that results in higher quality and full lifecycle support of the respective solutions (for the life of the technology).
