MONTREAL--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Accedian Networks, the leader in Performance Assured Networking™ for Mobile Backhaul, Business Services and Cloud Connectivity, today introduced its new solutions group, called Performant Networks; which offers a Wireless-Aware™ SDN product line that optimizes performance in real-time on fixed-wireless networks. This is accomplished by dynamically shaping traffic when link capacity suddenly changes due to real-world conditions such as adverse weather and RF interference.
“We identified that the R-FLO solution could integrate greatly with our services. The way that R-FLO handles QoS in response to monitored link capacity makes it unique”
The Solutions Groups’ first product, the R-FLO® solution, is compatible with mixed RF, fiber and copper topologies and complements existing networks by bringing unified high-availability and optimized performance network-wide by using all available links, all the time ̶ including standby and slow segments. Patent-pending link capacity monitoring allows R-FLO to dynamically groom traffic and maintain QoS even when links fade.
“We are excited to introduce a disruptive new way for fixed-mobile operators to make considerable efficiency gains in their wireless backhaul bandwidth,” said Patrick Ostiguy, President & CEO of Accedian Networks. “The R-FLO solution combines proven industry standards with real-time, technology-agnostic wireless awareness and delivers an advanced and centralized expert-system control plane. This unique combination means wireless backhaul can be as reliable and seamless as fiber, without time consuming and expensive investments. Simply put, R-FLO makes operator networks better.”
Combining extreme ease-of-use with Dynamic Performance Optimization (DPO) technology and Accedian’s hardware-based Performance Assured Networking™ architecture, R-FLO delivers a unique combination of telecom-grade technology accessible to a wide range of operators. The R-FLO solution has been deployed by global mobile broadband operators, communications and data-center service providers, wireless ISPs (WISPs), as well as in private education, health, municipal, enterprise and utility networks.
R-FLO is also a natural fit for small-cell backhaul applications, allowing service providers to deliver Five 9s (99.999%) reliability required by mobile operators over existing hybrid fiber/wireless (HFW) networks. Ensuring seamless deployments in open multi-vendor networks, the R-FLO solution has proven interoperability with leading radio and networking vendors including: SAF Tehnika® (NASDAQ:SAF1R), Cambium Networks ™, Trango Systems® and Radwin®.
“We identified that the R-FLO solution could integrate greatly with our services. The way that R-FLO handles QoS in response to monitored link capacity makes it unique,” said Gino Villarini, President of AeroNet. “When we saw the specs of the R-FLO solution and the features it offers, we were basically amazed, and we just said, “This is what we need, and we need it now.”
To experience the R-FLO solution, visit Performant Networks at WISPApalooza 2013 in Las Vegas the week of October 14th, in booth #109.
