HERNDON, Virginia and MONTREAL, Quebec, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
OneAccess Networks - a leading manufacturer of Multi-Service Routers, and FONEX data systems Inc. - a telecommunications equipment supplier with solutions focused at the metro-edge of Service Provider networks, announced today that they have entered into a distribution agreement to address managed services delivery requirements for Canadian Service Providers. The One Series Multi-Service Router (MSR) portfolio, with integrated Layer 2/3 functionality, provides Service Providers with the most comprehensive range of broadband WAN options and software feature integration to enable cloud services and applications to the SMB and enterprise market segment.
OneAccess' One Series portfolio with integrated interfaces for Fiber Ethernet, DOCSIS 3.0 and/or Bonded Copper options reduces the number of appliances required to deploy managed cloud services for SMB and Enterprise Customers. As a result, Service Providers can realize significant business advantages, including: accelerated CAPEX return on investment (ROI), and significant OPEX savings realized through simplified element management, higher Quality of Service (QoS) performance, reduced inventory costs, and streamlined training of field technician resources.
"I look forward to working with the FONEX team to offer solutions that enable an emerging generation of cloud-based networking services," said Dennis R. Gatens, vice president and general manager of OneAccess Networks, North America. "Whether it is scalable bandwidth or software features, which enable higher value services, the One Series is uniquely architected for Service Providers to offer an array of differentiated, managed services to meet the evolving needs of the business marketplace.""FONEX is excited to be working with OneAccess to develop purpose-built solutions for Customers. We believe that OneAccess has a unique vision to transition the traditional MSR from a Layer-3 centric device to become a cloud-based application delivery vehicle.", added Pasquale Di Pierro, President & CEO of FONEX data systems, "FONEX is keen to introduce new service-aware capabilities via Layer 3-7 intelligence at the very edge of the network, which can effectively solve bandwidth bottleneck and application delivery challenges at the Customer Premise. Such product innovation is required to enable Service Providers to deliver compelling value and new levels of service differentiation, especially to their business clients." "As part of our expanding global presence, we are pleased to enter into a partnership with FONEX," said Bertrand Meis, CEO of OneAccess Networks. "Our organization's market vision and customer philosophy are closely aligned, which will result in higher value solutions for the Service Provider." With the One Series portfolio from OneAccess, Service Providers realize the benefits of software feature integration that includes eSBC (enterprise Session Border Controller) plus application visibility, control and optimization features, which are essential for a high-value, managed cloud services roadmap. Integration of these features with the Multi-Service Router is part of OneAccess' commitment to lead the evolution of the MSR from a Layer-3 centric network element to a cloud-based application delivery solution.
