CHATSWORTH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jun. 9, 2014– MRV Communications™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVC) (“MRV®”), a leading provider of innovative packet and optical solutions, announced today that its OptiDriver™ optical transport platform has been named a finalist in the 2014 American Business Awards (also known as “The Stevies”) in the Best New Product category. The American Business Awards is a premier awards program open to all organizations operating in the United States. MRV’s OptiDriver™ solution offers more capacity, intelligence and ease-of-use for service providers, data centers, content delivery networks and cloud providers to streamline network management. These innovative features make it easier for operators to support high-growth cloud connectivity applications that are creating unrelenting traffic demands on today’s next-generation networks.
Supporting the latest advances in optical technologies, the OptiDriver™ platform is the newest addition to MRV’s comprehensive family of advanced optical transport network elements. The solution empowers network operators to meet current operational needs with the industry’s highest 10G density and accommodate growing capacity demands with support for 100G transport. The solution features built-in processing, testing and rapid turn-up capabilities which significantly reduce the time required to deploy new networks, increase visibility into the status of an existing network and protect initial investment on new technologies. Combined, these features provide operators with a more intelligent, high-performance network and simplify the creation of new revenue opportunities.
“With the growing use of virtualization, streaming video services and enterprise demand for cloud services, network operators of all types are coming under increased pressure to more effectively manage the service bandwidth explosion we are currently seeing in the market. MRV enables operators to accommodate this growing demand with an innovative solution that improves network intelligence, performance and manageability,” said Zeev Draer, vice president of strategic marketing at MRV Communications. “We are pleased to have the OptiDriver™ recognized by the American Business Awards as a finalist for Best New Product.
