OneAccess Goes Head to Head with Cisco in Mid-Range Router Market

PARIS, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

New range of purpose-built router solutions meets under-served needs of operators, Cloud and communication service providers in high-performance router space

OneAccess, a global provider of specialist multi-service access routers for telecom operators and communication service providers (CSPs), today steps into the high performance 'mid-range' router market to offer a direct challenge to Cisco, the sector's dominant and currently uncontested leader.

OneAccess' purpose-built network access solutions are designed to address the unique challenges faced by operators, Cloud and managed service providers as they gradually migrate both their networks and services to virtualized and all-IP environments. In the fiercely competitive branch-office router market, OneAccess' express focus on operators and CSPs has already resulted in EMEA unit shipments surpassing those of Cisco[1]. Today's announcement maintains this recipe for success and extends OneAccess' support to operators and CSPs to include higher-performance router solutions, most commonly deployed in Cloud and central locations with high data exchange requirements over the WAN.

"Cisco's network access equipment and its distributor-based go-to-market model are designed for the enterprise market, which has a very different set of requirements to those of operators and CSPs," comments Pravin Mirchandani, CMO, OneAccess. "We have successfully redressed this imbalance in the branch-office router market by working collaboratively with our operator customers to purpose-build a range of solutions that meet their needs. Now we are extending this model to offer this customer segment faster and more flexible solutions, with fiercely competitive price performance ratios, that can be deployed in the central and high capacity Cloud environments."

Operators and CSPs worldwide are challenged by an unremitting requirement to reduce TCO, increase network performance and drive competitive differentiation through the provision of new and innovative managed network services. As the market continues to shift toward Cloud and virtualized network infrastructures, operators and CSPs must also update their networks, replacing obsolete legacy equipment with access solutions capable of delivering the next generation of hybrid all-IP WAN designs, complete with the necessary multi-path links and application performance monitoring functionality that will support their evolving SLA commitments to customers.

The One25XX series offers layer 2 and layer 3 convergence, enabling operators and CSPs to deliver conventional Carrier Ethernet and IP services in one box. It also replaces multiple processors with a single multi-core CPU, enabling the device to be reduced in size and increasing mean time between failure.

"We understand that the greatest TCO savings in network access technologies are realized when the equipment is both flexible and future-proofed," adds Mirchandani. "OneAccess provides the widest choice of access technologies available and is committed to supporting all combinations of these technologies, both today and in the future. Unlike larger vendors, we are culturally attuned to the individual market needs of operators; we work with them directly and collaboratively to identify a multi-service access solution suited to their specific requirements. We are very excited to bring this dedicated approach to a brand new market sector for us."

OneAccess' carrier-class routers and EADs enable operators to 'mass-customize' their network access capabilities, installing the same access platforms with all customers, but provisioning only the services required by each. This means they can centralize IT control, minimize the need for costly site visits and implement remote service updates across multiple customers simultaneously.

By making substantial TCO reductions, OneAccess' solutions can alleviate the pressures operators are facing globally due to increased competition, higher customer expectations, exponential increases in data volumes and reduced ARPU.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
