MRV to showcase ‘converged packet & optical solutions’ at CommunicAsia 2015


Keeping its focus around delivering unique converged packet and optical solutions, US based MRV Communications is set to showcase some of its next generation ready innovations at the upcoming ICT mega event CommunicAsia 2015 happening between June 2-5, 2015 in Singapore. 

MRV Communications is a global provider in converged packet and optical solutions. The company helps customers overcome the challenge of orchestrating the ever-increasing need for capacity while improving service delivery and lowering network costs for critical applications such as cloud and datacenter connectivity, business Ethernet services, and mobile backhaul.

In a recent quarter result announcement, Mark Bonney, president and chief executive officer of MRV, stated, “Our Network Integration business continues to perform well, and we are exploring strategic alternatives for this business to help unlock and realize the value of our two independent and distinct lines of business.”

“We are pleased with the positive trends in our Network Equipment business, and see significant growth opportunities in this segment as the products we have developed address the increasing bandwidth demand for cloud, mobility and video services. During the quarter, we achieved several significant milestones. OptiDriver® is gaining traction among service providers and data center operators, most notably in the Americas and EMEA, and the OptiDriver customer count rose to 59. Additionally, we achieved all of our OptiPacket® product development milestones and completed a successful trial in a Tier One account. We also secured our first OptiPacket order, which was a combined sale with OptiDriver and Pro-Vision®, our service orchestration software platform, to a North American service provider. This demonstrates our ability to provide an end-to-end solution for metro service edge networks,” concluded Bonney.
