In his talk at Layer123’s SDN NFV World Congress 2018, CTO Ori Gerstel describes how CSPs can effectively compete in the digital era with network intelligence and automation.
Challenges in the Face of Digital Transformation The Communication Service Provider (CSP) landscape is changing rapidly in the face of the digital era. New and stronger competition, growing customer demands, increased operational costs and evolving technologies are just a few of the challenges CSPs face today. CSPs are now required to adopt a digital strategy…
Analyst Sterling Perrin writes about the requirements and benefits of delivering automation in the carrier WAN, with a focus on the IP and optical layers andas the value of software-based coordination between the layers using SDN.
In this demo, Sedona CTO and co-founder Ori Gerstel shows Light Reading Editor-in-Chief Ray Le Maistre how NetFusion enables service providers to get the most out of their network – especially during times of high traffic.
In this Light Reading Telecom Innovator’s Showcase, Sedona Founder & CTO Ori Gerstel sat down with Ray Le Maistre, Light Reading’s Editor-in-Chief. The two discussed Sedona’s network and automation platform, NetFusion, and how NetFusion is used to speed up and get better accuracy in network mergers and migrations.
Introduction Accurate network inventory data is a critical foundation for delivering new services and minimizing the impact of maintenance and outages, with significant flow-through impact on both cost and revenue. That said, access to accurate inventory data is a big challenge for most, if not all Communications Service Providers, because today’s inventory validation and audit…
This white paper examines how the control hierarchy for SDN networks is converging toward a three-tier structure, with a service orchestrator, a network controller, and multiple domain controllers. The benefits are plenty, including faster innovation, a stable ecosystem of collaborating parties, and flexibility to replace building blocks with minimal effort and without vendor lock-in.
In this video, CTO Ori Gerstel sits down with Glenn Wellbrock, Verizon’s director of optical transport planning, to discuss the practical challenges and significant value of introducing accurate discovery and automation into a Tier-1 service provider network.
In this SDxCentral DemoFriday video, Sedona’s Gal Afriat and Daniel Tardent demonstrate NetFusion, a hierarchical network controller developed by Sedona to support the realistic migration to automated service-aware networks.
Network Intelligence – The Essential Foundation for Network Automation and a Powerful Tool for Revenue Growth and Operational Efficiency Improvement
Automation is one of the big rising stars of networking. It has attracted huge industry interest of late, with Light Reading dedicating a whole category to the topic and many industry events, including Layer123’s SDN NFV World Congress, hosting significant automation tracks. Carriers are building requirements around it in their RFP processes, and analyst firms…
