Accedian Networks' Performance Assurance Solutions Fuel Growth
Orchestrated performance assurance solutions address carriers' specific needs, provide foundation for service providers' migration to performance-optimized SDN
Simplifying large-scale performance assurance deployments by Tier-1 service providers, Accedian has developed open, multi-vendor, programmable platforms that automate all aspects of performance assurance, from service activation testing (SAT) to workflow automation, to real-time performance results collection and reporting. The results are dramatic - operators will use Accedian solutions to assure performance at over 300,000 sites in 2014, an increase of 50% over 2013.
Accedian's solution integration investment has resulted in a seamless fabric of components for network-wide performance assurance. Software agents and pluggable, NFV-enhanced modules fit into small cells, SMB CPEs and data centers; elements address enterprise, aggregation and core sites, and actuators capable of continuous, granular performance monitoring to tens of thousands of endpoints.
Reflecting Accedian's solution portfolio, simplified product naming now underlines components' adaptability to a wide range of solution formulations. The SkyLIGHT™ NFV & API architecture has also assumed a greater role as Network State+™ real-time QoS data is increasingly used by NMS, monitoring and SDN controllers from Cyan, SevOne, and many others.
Solutions are strengthened by a standards-based+ approach, where components interoperate with performance monitoring capabilities already integrated into many network elements, including mobile base stations and small cells from Ericsson, NSN, Samsung and more.
"As we continue to reinvent performance assurance, our open, programmable, multi-vendor solutions adapt to operators' current and evolving needs," explained Patrick Ostiguy, President & CEO of Accedian Networks, "Whether for large-scale, distributed service activation testing, sub-second performance monitoring, or as live QoS feedback for SDN controllers, Accedian has the platforms, components and services to realize large-scale integrated network performance assurance solutions."
Accedian Networks is the Performance Assurance Solution Specialist for mobile backhaul & small cells, business services and service provider SDN. Open, multi-vendor interoperable and programmable solutions go beyond standard-based performance assurance to deliver Network State+™, the most complete view of network health.
Automated service activation testing and real-time performance monitoring feature unrivalled precision and granularity, while H-QoS traffic conditioning optimizes service performance. SkyLIGHT™ interfaces solutions with 3rd-party platforms to enable performance-optimized SDN.
