Service Providers aim to deliver network services more quickly with assured customer quality. However, as networks are becoming increasingly software-defined and programmable, the rate at which they change is also rising, driven by network-on-demand offerings and self-service portals. In this dynamic environment, traditional test and assurance solutions simply cannot keep up, and if they can, they often bring unacceptable operational costs. These traditional hardware-bound solutions also hobble agility and innovation, and in today’s evolving networks, innovation is crucial to staying competitive.
Model-driven Orchestrated Assurance offers Service Providers a new approach to bridging this gap between service fulfillment and assurance. Software-based test agents, which are well-suited to a dynamic network environment, perform end-to-end activation tests and active monitoring that are automated throughout the full service lifecycle in closed-feedback loops. This enables service providers to automatically validate SLAs, discover issues earlier, and resolve problems more quickly.
Orchestration experts from Cisco and our Solutions Plus Partner Netrounds share insights on the business benefits and savings that can be gained through implementing a new automated approach to active testing, monitoring and assurance in NFV environments.
