Verizon Chooses Aria Networks to Evaluate Future Network Designs

Posted on: 13th August 2010

Aria Networks, a leading provider of optimisation and planning software solutions for next-generation networks, today announced that Verizon has selected Aria’s intelligent Virtual Network Topology (iVNT) software to deliver efficient and cost-effective network architectures.

Aria Networks iVNT will be used to assist Verizon network architects’ decision-making by comparing the capabilities of several candidate architectures which vary by technology, cost-model and configuration. The solution will allow Verizon to determine the ability of each candidate network architecture to meet forecast demands over various time horizons, along with an optimal cost estimate for each.

iVNT’s unique artificial intelligence allows multiple constraints to be evaluated while optimising a complete Verizon core network scenario in a matter of minutes. iCustomise, Aria’s scripting language, will provide automated, flexible, execution of multiple scenarios, comparing results and providing reports to Verizon’s network architects.

Selection of Aria Networks iVNT followed a proof-of-concept which suggested significant savings on equipments costs between the most and least cost architectures.

Aria Networks recognises that optimal allocation of capital expenditure is a major objective for modern communication service providers. Aria Networks’ highly scalable architecture and A.I.-based planning suite is the only solution able to meet the requirements of the largest service providers managing multi-layer, multi-technology networks.

Tony Fallows, Aria Networks CEO, added: “We are pleased to be working with Verizon and contributing to their network optimisation. Their forward-looking approach is a perfect match for Aria’s products, and one which we believe will offer Verizon significant benefits going-forward.”
