MRV Communications™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVC) (“MRV®”), a leading provider of innovative packet and optical solutions, announced today a case study, produced in conjunction with analyst firm Heavy Reading®, on Telstra® and its implementation of advanced Carrier Ethernet solutions is now available for download. The case study explores how Telstra is utilizing MRV’s Carrier Ethernet 2.0-certified (CE 2.0) access, aggregation and management solutions for a nationwide network upgrade in more than 1,700 metro and regional exchange service areas.

Telstra was the first service provider in APAC, and only the second
operator in the world, to receive CE 2.0 certification. Telstra
embraced CE 2.0 technology and invested in more advanced Ethernet
services to create a network foundation that could:
- Support new revenue growth opportunities
- Improve customer satisfaction
- Increase service manageability and visibility
- Simplify network costs and business processes
- MRV Communications was among the first group of suppliers to receive CE 2.0 product certification.
- Telstra’s next-generation Ethernet services use a set of MRV’s access, pre-aggregation and service provisioning and management platforms, including the OptiSwitch® demarcation and pre-aggregation solution and the Pro-Vision® service provisioning and network management system.
- Collaboration with MRV has allowed Telstra to adopt CE 2.0 technology and augment it with automated service provisioning and SLA verification and monitoring. This puts Telstra in a stronger position to compete around service performance and the quality of customer experience – principal battlegrounds in today’s Ethernet market.
- Aligning with MEF CE 2.0 requirements, and working with MRV, provides Telstra a strong foundation for offering robust service level agreements, facilitates smoother Ethernet network-to-network interconnection arrangements with other service providers and makes it easier to deliver standardized solutions for specific industry verticals and wholesale customers.
- The multi-dimensional nature of MRV’s CE 2.0 solution allows Telstra the option to enhance its current service portfolio using the same access and aggregation infrastructure. This will allow Telstra to continue to optimize its network infrastructure and refine its service offering to better compete with traditional and over-the-top (OTT) service providers.
“MRV’s OptiSwitch® service demarcation and pre-aggregation solutions provide granular scalability, reliability and network efficiencies and consequently help reduce operational costs.”
--David Robertson, Director, Transport and Routing Engineering, Telstra
“MEF CE 2.0 certification means our customers can have complete confidence in the quality and reach of our Ethernet products. We are committed to evolving our business well beyond simple connectivity solutions while continuing to leverage the competitive advantage we gain from our national IP-MPLS/VPLS infrastructure.”
--Julio Coelho, General Manager, DIPNAS, Telstra Wholesale
“Today’s market dynamics are enabling forward thinking Tier 1 service providers to optimize and evolve their networks with solutions that allow them to grow their business in a highly competitive environment. MRV is committed to delivering innovative, flexible and intelligent network solutions that will enable our customers, like Telstra, to transform their service delivery infrastructure and make it easier for them to accelerate service creation.”
--Dave Stehlin, CEO, MRV Communications

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...

As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
