Dorval, Québec, Canada, 2008/01/11 - Accedian Networks, Inc., a leading provider of Network Performance Assurance Solutions for Ethernet Service Providers, has been selected by OCRI as one of Canada’s Top 10 Technology Companies.
Winners were chosen by an independent expert panel of Canadian and US venture capitalists.
"I continue to be impressed by the quality of companies that I see coming out of Canada,” says Bernhardt Zeisig, Director, VIMAC Ventures LLC (Competition Juror).
Accedian provides Network Performance Assurance Solutions for Ethernet Service Providers. Its Ethernet Service Assurance Platform allows clearly defining, maintaining and assuring Ethernet SLAs (“Service Level Agreements”) from End-to-End. Accedian’s Service Assurance Platform can be used in diverse applications, one sector from which the Company is seeing enormous traction at the moment is wireless backhaul. Wireless Service providers have started shifting their Cell site Backhaul technology from T1 to Ethernet which is much more efficient to support the bandwidth explosion of 4G/EV-DO/HSDPA wireless services. Accedian is currently taking part in North America’s very first 4G deployment.
“Being honoured as one of Canada’s Top 10 Technology companies is a great recognition of our company and product offering” said Patrick Ostiguy, President and CEO of Accedian Networks. “In the past year, Accedian has grown and increased its market share tremendously. Our solutions allow our customers from all around the world to deliver Service Performance with Assurance.”
