Edgecore Networks | November 24, 2021
Exaware, a leading provider of Open Networking software solutions, and Edgecore Networks, the leader in Open Networking hardware solutions, today announced a global partnership agreement, to jointly provide routing solutions for Communication Service Providers (CSPs). As part of the agreement, Exaware and Edgecore will combine their experience and expertise to integrate and distribute high-end routing solutions for Internet peering, datacenter gateway, provider edge, and access/aggregation applications.
Internet peering is a critical part of every CSP network, enabling two or more networks to connect and directly exchange traffic to ensure customers' access to global Internet content. With ExaNOS, Exaware’s feature-rich, high-scale Network Operating System, running on flagship Edgecore Network's hardware equipment, such as the AG130 (AS5916-54XKS), CSPs can now benefit from a robust and cost-effective Internet peering solution. Skillfully designed, the joint solution can process a comprehensive Internet routing table with unprecedented convergence time, together with high-scale BGP RIB, BGP-PIC Edge/Core, complemented by advanced peering features, including Route Leak, RPKI, and rich BGP policy language. In turn, this enables CSPs to break existing vendor lock-in and bring innovation to the heart of the network.
“Edgecore are very pleased to work together with Exaware. Combining robust hardware from Edgecore and advanced software from Exaware, we believe the communication service provider can enjoy the innovation and benefit of open networking,” said Heimdall Siao, President of Edgecore Networks. “As a provider of open networking solution to tier one operator worldwide, and leading contributor to OCP, ONF, and TIP open communities, we fully understand operator’s requirement to reduce the cost of network deployment while moving toward a more consistent and open infrastructure across the network.”
“Exaware is delighted to partner with Edgecore Networks. Their manufacturing quality, unrivaled market experience, and global reach, mean that together, we deliver powerful routing solutions that take full advantage of Open Networking benefits,Together, we deliver a flexible, high-scale and cost-effective routing system which also opens up the network to integrate third-party applications and generate new revenues from innovative services.”

Electric utilities will now have access to a new offering in their accelerating efforts to deploy private wireless broadband networks for enhanced operational reliability, resilience, cyber security, and performance. Shared spectrum pioneer Federated Wireless and Anterix Inc., (NASDAQ: ATEX), the nation's largest holder of licensed spectrum in the 900 MHz band (896-901/935-940 MHz) throughout the contiguous United States plus Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico, are collaborating to create a new Anterix offer combining dedicated use of Anterix's 900 MHz broadband spectrum paired with Federated Wireless' shared spectrum services that facilitate use of the CBRS band. The new offering, when completed, can facilitate utility access to a multi-band solution for their grid communications deployment, offering the benefits of the wide coverage and dedicated control of licensed 900 MHz combined with the capacity and flexibility of unlicensed or licensed CBRS spectrum.
"Our focus remains centered on the Nation's utility sector. With the transformative power of 900 MHz broadband, and our utility-focused Anterix Active Ecosystem program, we are excited about the role we are playing in developing the outcomes that enable the modernization of our electric grid," said Anterix President & CEO Rob Schwartz. "Working with the great team from Federated Wireless will add significant value to that effort. Combining the cost-effective coverage potential and mission critical nature of our low-band 900 MHz spectrum, with Federated's services that allow access to the mid-band CBRS spectrum, will create a new hybrid product opportunity for the utility sector."
"Close collaboration with Anterix will enable us to rapidly expand our existing CBRS market leadership into the utilities segment, which is poised for rapid innovation," said Iyad Tarazi, founder and CEO, Federated Wireless. "We look forward to working closely with Anterix and its customers to set new standards for performance, stability and security in US utility networks."
With deep roots in the wireless industry and a critical infrastructure mission, Anterix has leveraged its 900 MHz holdings to seek out and bring to the utility sector cutting edge wireless broadband communications capabilities and utility-centric solutions. To date, Anterix has provided its low-band spectrum to large metropolitan utilities providers such as Ameren and San Diego Gas & Electric for use in building new private LTE networks. Other utilities currently are investigating dozens of use cases, exploring the potential impact of 900 MHz LTE in helping to digitally transform the nation's energy sector.
The nationwide leader in the CBRS market, Federated Wireless was first to launch and deploy a commercial spectrum access system (SAS) and an environmental sensing capability (ESC) network, both of which are key enablers for both licensed and unlicensed CBRS spectrum. With more than 200 customers and more than 65,000 connected devices across the United States and territories, the company serves a customer base that includes many utility companies, including electric co-ops; large interstate gas and electric companies; oil refineries; and tier one Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). Additional deployments include tier one cable operators and tower companies, over 100 regional and rural Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), and several public sector and federal entities, including a Marine Corp 5G Smart Warehouse in Albany, GA.
At Anterix, we are focused on delivering transformative broadband that enables the modernization of critical infrastructure for the energy, transportation, logistics and other sectors of our economy. As the largest holder of licensed spectrum in the 900 MHz band (896-901/935-940 MHz) throughout the contiguous United States, plus Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico, we are uniquely positioned to enable the private LTE broadband solutions that support secure, resilient, and customer-controlled operations.
