Exaware and Edgecore Networks Announce Strategic Partnership to Expand Networking Solutions for Global Communication Service Providers

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.”

Members of this innovative service plan benefit from specialized expertise to maximize modular data centers' uptime, while optimizing maintenance and extending the life of their assets. EcoCare keeps modular data centers running smoothly and efficiently Demand for modular data centers is booming as companies struggle to meet unprecedented challenges such as digitization, rising energy costs, edge computing demand and the need for efficient, cost-effective, scalable and fast-to-deploy solutions. To ensure modular data centers are optimally performing, getting the support of experts with a comprehensive understanding of their operations and unique systems is vital. This knowledge helps maintain the system's infrastructure through its complete lifecycle - keeping operations safe, efficient, resilient, and sustainable. Members benefit from a next generation service plan for system-level maintenance and improved operations Members benefit from exclusive support which includes a dedicated customer success management team, who become their go-to-coach, orchestrating remote and on-site services team, addressing infrastructure and maintenance needs at a system level, rather than a fragmented approach for each asset only when problems arise. Based on a membership with exclusive benefits for its members, this service offer unlocks the full potential of connected assets including: Optimum levels of support: By leveraging data analytics from connected assets, our remote experts monitor equipment health status and can filter the alarms to act before a potential mission-critical issue occurs. In parallel, customers get faster response times to help ensure quick action if needed on potentially mission-critical issues. Reaching sustainability goals: With EcoCare, customers can extend their assets' life by up to 25%1 and reduce carbon emissions by using remote monitoring to optimize on-site maintenance activities.
