Overture Honored as Stevie® Award Winner in 2013 American Business AwardsSM

Overture, innovating at the metro edge for service providers and network operators worldwide, today announced it has been presented with a Gold Stevie® Award for its 6500 scalable, high resiliency Carrier Ethernet aggregation and switching platform in the “Best New Telecommunications Product” category. The company also received a Silver Stevie® for its Ensemble OSA™ in the broader “Tech Innovation of the Year” category that included technology submissions across a full range of industries.

“We have received strong support from our customers that the new 6500 family, underpinned by Ensemble OSA, allows service providers to drive cost out of their networks while helping them introduce new revenue-generating services faster and easier,” said Mike Aquino, president and CEO, Overture. “We are pleased that the judges of the American Business Awards recognize Overture is truly driving innovation of Carrier Ethernet and bringing the benefits of the Cloud to the metro edge for our customers.”

The Overture 6500 is the industry’s first platform to deliver MEF-certified CE2.0 performance-assured services over fiber, E-Access, copper, TDM and SONET/SDH. It is the ideal solution for service providers to address today’s demanding Enterprise cloud, mobile backhaul, wholesale, and metro infrastructure applications. The Overture 6500 is also the entry point for Ensemble OSA, Overture’s open architecture for software-defined services at the metro edge. Together, the Overture 6500 and Ensemble OSA represent a fundamentally new approach to the revenue and operational challenges facing service providers.
