Smartoptics and LightRiver are enabling a new generation of disaggregated networks

Disaggregated networks have been gaining in importance, especially for service provider metro networks and enterprise DCI. By engineering open optical network solutions, Smartoptics and LightRiver have both been working hard for years to enable effective disaggregated networks. Now Smartoptics open line systems are supported in LightRiver’s optical domain orchestration and control solution, netFLEX®. Smartoptics’ network infrastructure and netFLEX will also be packaged together and resold by both companies. By creating synergies that eliminate operational barriers to wider deployment, this expanded collaboration will be a key enabler for a new generation of disaggregated networks.
