CEO Tom Waechter spoke to Converge! Network Digest about the Viavi launch and important trends that the company supports, including software defined networking and network functions virtualization. A few notable comments from Tom and the full interview are included below.

“There’s a significant shift going on in the architectures in the network. You’ve heard about SDN, software defined networks, network functions virtualization, so we’re right in the middle of that to really help the customer base to make that shift in the architecture. A lot of it is to help them to collect data throughout their network – all parts of the network – to really understand the network performance as there’s more data flowing through the network, part of big data.

We help them collect that data but more importantly we help them to break down the data to a meaningful format, so they can really better understand their networks and the performance of the networks to better serve their customer base – at the same time reducing the cost to operate those networks.”

“The key things that we want people to think about when they think about Viavi is our innovative capabilities. So we are a thought leader in the industry we work very closely with our customer base to solve some very complex problems, whether they are in the network with the NSE part of our business or whether it has to do with counterfeiting on the OSP side of the business.”

“Today now as we separate we’ll be much more of a pure play and really will be able to focus on our customers and give them a lot more support and be a lot more agile in the way we address the marketplace.”
