Overture Networks, the industry’s trusted Carrier Ethernet solutions provider, announced that its ISG 6000 Carrier Ethernet Aggregation System has been recognized by the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) and the Broadband World Forum Europe organization as a finalist for the 2009 InfoVision Awards in the Access Network Technologies and Services category.
Overture Networks’ ISG 6000 enables service providers to deliver high-value Ethernet and IP services consistently to all of their business customers. With breakthrough densities and processing power, Overture’s newest service aggregator efficiently grooms all service traffic to the IP/MPLS core, improves backhaul capacity engineering and greatly reduces power consumption in the Central Office or co-location facility.
“The ISG 6000 is designed to accelerate the transition to an all- Carrier Ethernet service infrastructure, enabling our customers around the world to maximize revenue and reduce bottom-line costs,” said Overture Networks CEO Jeff Reedy. “We are delighted to receive this recognition from the IEC as an acknowledgment of the ISG 6000 in helping to validate the standard we’re trying to set for value and dependability.”
IEC’s InfoVision Awards program recognizes technologies, applications, products, advances and services judged as the most unique and beneficial to the information and communications technologies (ICT) industry. The Access Network Technologies and Services category addresses innovations associated with technologies used to advance the development of the access segment of the network such as femtocells, WiMAX and Carrier Ethernet.
“The IEC’s InfoVision Awards recognize top contributions in the information and communications technologies (ICT) industry. We’re pleased to recognize Overture Networks as an InfoVision Awards Finalist for its ISG 6000,” commented IEC President John Janowiak.
Finalists were selected by a panel of judges chosen from the Broadband World Forum Europe 2009 program committee, consisting of industry experts from vendor companies, service providers and industry associations.
The IEC will announce winners on Monday, 7 September at the World Forum.
