MBUZZ Europe and Lumina Networks have announced a partnership agreement to bring hardened open source networking to Europe.

MBUZZ Europe is an energetic new breed of Systems Integrator that works with Tier-1 Operators, Hyper-Converged Data Centers, CSPs, and Education to accelerate their open networking initiatives. MBUZZ’s European clients seek the network control, reduced vendor dependencies, and flexibility that Lumina Networks’ heterogeneous networking solutions provide. The partnership will grow from Lumina’s deployment successes in AsiaPac and North America and extends the commitment both companies have made to open source innovation.

“We are very happy to be working with MBUZZ on our expansion in Europe. Their deep telco experience and ability to collect multiple open networking technologies into turnkey solutions will accelerate the adoption in the market,” says Mitch Lewis, VP, Strategic Alliances at Lumina Networks.
