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.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
