OTTAWA, Oct. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - CENX, a leading provider of Ethernet
service orchestration solutions, announced the opening of a global
development and operations center in Ottawa, Canada. The new location
provides further infrastructure that scales CENX to meet the global
demand for Carrier Ethernet software solutions. The company also
announced that it received $5 million in funding from Comerica Bank to
support CENX's expansion.
CENX delivers software solutions for service providers that orchestrate
the Ethernet services lifecycle, including end to end visualization of
Ethernet assets and automation of key workflows such as ordering,
provisioning, inventory audit, and fault isolation.
Core development for the company's flagship solution, CENX Ethernet Lifecycle Manager, is based in Ottawa. The company recently scaled its capabilities with
the opening of a global development and operations center based in
downtown Ottawa. The new location houses a growing team of
approximately 50 Ethernet experts in software development and
professional services, as well as other corporate functions such as
Marketing, Product Management and Finance.
CENX boosted its sales presence in North America and the UK, with the
addition of experienced sales professionals to meet the global demand
for Ethernet software solutions from service providers and cloud

"CENX's new generation software approach is unique. We leverage deep
expertise in Ethernet service delivery together with Web 2.0
technologies, automation, and big data analytics to deliver actionable
intelligence that powers Ethernet service orchestration. Our traction
with Tier 1 service providers validates the tangible business value we
deliver, and we are excited about the business prospects for CENX in
this global market," said Ed Ogonek, CENX President and CEO.
Service Providers are investing in Carrier Ethernet and next generation
IP service infrastructure to meet persistent customer demand for
greater bandwidth, harmonized quality of experience and improved
service performance. Key applications such as mobile backhaul, data
center interconnect, cloud access services and enterprise Ethernet
services will fuel the Ethernet market. Infonetics Research forecasts that annual service provider investment in Carrier Ethernet
will reach nearly $40 billion by 2017.
A Heavy Reading survey highlighted that competition in Ethernet services has expanded beyond
service types and technical details to include greater emphasis on
service performance and quality of experience.
While Carrier Ethernet offers flexible parameters fundamental to
Ethernet service differentiation, it brings added complexity to service
provisioning and management. Existing management solutions are
challenged to deal with the overwhelming volume and varying levels of
data required to manage Ethernet services.
CENX provides service orchestration solutions for Ethernet transport in
today's IP networks and new generation software-defined networks. We
bring the power of web 2.0, automation and big data analytics to
visualize Ethernet transport services, and orchestrate service delivery
across multiple operator networks. With CENX, service providers and
cloud exchange providers can accelerate time to revenue, create service
differentiation, and assure performance - end to end. www.cenx.com
