RAD Edges Out Competitors for NFV Innovation of the Year Award

By Matt Paulson June 04, 2014

Founded in 1981, RAD has offered communications service providers state of the art technologies designed to improve performance, quality and speed throughout the years. Most recently, RAD's Distributed Network Functions Virtualization (D-NFV) solution has been turning heads. The solution is so effective that the company was awarded the NFV Innovation of the Year award by the Network Virtualization Industry association. This announcement was made at the Network Virtualization & SDN World in London on May 28th, and RAD won out over seven other companies that were nominated for the same award.

“We are especially proud of this award, given that this is a first-to-market NFV solution,” said RAD President and CEO Dror Bin, “RAD is an industry leader in virtualization and is an active participant in relevent standardization bodies... Our commitment is symbolized by a $32M investment in a new R&D center that we have now opened to focus on these technologies as the world of communications rapidly migrates to NFV and SDN.”

RAD's award-winning D-NFV solution offeres a centerless approach that balances a low initial investment with agile and scalable service, meaning that there is very little risk to service providers who choose to use it. The Company's Service Assured Access solution (known as ETX) includes not just the D-NFV module, but also features a x86 server that functions as a virtualization engine for customers, and a powerful Layer2/Layer 3 Network Termination Unit (NTU).

The Network Virtualization Industry Awards exist to recognize and commemorate excellence within the telecommunication industry, and celebrate the best technologies for use within the NFV and SDN community every year. Judges on the panel are chosen from several leaders with background in telecommunications, including Worldwide Telecommunications IDC's Group Vice President and Consulting partner Mark Winther and Heavy Reading's Senior Analyist Caroline Chappell. Together, these judges give their unbiased and professional opinions on which SDN and NFV solutions offer the best options and price points for service providers the world over.

To learn more about NFV and SDN, consider attending Software Telco Congress – The NFV Event. It will run from Aug. 11-14 at The Rio – Las Vegas. For more information, click here.
