The whitepaper is aimed at senior decision-makers within a CSP. It looks at how Sedona NetFusion can automate the management of IP/Optical transport networks delivering quantitative benefits for all operators, be they mobile, fixed broadband or enterprise-focused. Based on a taper of benefits in the first six months, we estimate an accumulated benefit of $113 million over a three-year ROI period
Sedona Systems and DataStax Joint Solution delivers real-time inventory accuracy to CSP provisioning, operations & engineering. In the sprawling networks built by Communications Service Providers (CSP), there is a troublesome disconnect between the network as it functions, and the network as it is designed and documented in inventory databases.
This solution brief examines why it is so critical to identify all of the SRLGs in the service path that could cause a shared-group failure, and the level of risk involved, and runs through a case study of exactly how NetFusion is supporting tier-1 operators to manage SRLG identification and risk.
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.
Sedona NetFusion enables CSPs to embrace digital transformation and prosper from 4G and 5G digital services by moving from process-driven, manual networks to data-driven, fully autonomous networks.
Operators are increasingly embracing software-defined networking (SDN) across their networks, from data centres to wide-area networks (WANs) and the customer edge, as part of their automation journeys.
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.
Based on a webinar with Light Reading and Nokia, this white paper provides a detailed look at the new SDN-based IP and optical integration renaissance, including the market drivers, technology enablers, primary applications and use cases, leading operator success stories, and work yet to be done.
This white paper describes the NetFusion Intelligence and Automation App Platform, which enables multivendor discovery of the Optical layer, IP/MPLS layer, and cross-connections between the two layers. The accompanying NetFusion Explorer UI enables you to visualize and explore this multi-layer network model in near real-time, showing optically-aware IP/MPLS routing and conversely, IP/MPLS-informed optical paths.
This paper focuses on requirements for the NBI of Optical domain controllers in a multilayer architecture. The NBI of the optical domain controller has four main functions: topology discovery, monitoring, provisioning, and path computation. These requirements generally apply to both DWDM and OTN systems, with the obvious omission of feasibility limitations that only apply to the DWDM layer.
