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. 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.
OneAccess designs, develops and markets innovative platforms for the profitable delivery of CPE-based managed network services for communication service providers (CSPs). Its multi-service access routers and Carrier Ethernet devices are designed to ensure service continuity and a high quality of experience for managed broadband and wireless data and voice services targeted at enterprise customers. OneAccess service-delivery platforms align with the current and future deployment and operating models of service providers by optimizing the delivery of managed Cloud services and migration to SDN architectures. OneAccess CPE platforms are used by more than 150 communication service providers internationally, including some of the world's largest telecommunications companies. With a global presence that includes North America, Europe and Asia, OneAccess, a private company, was incorporated in 2001.

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
