Operations

Efficient network operations are often hampered by manually collected network data that is inaccurate and incomplete. In addition, “swivel chair” management in which data and actions are siloed across disparate management systems, OSS tools and operations teams, makes efficiency a daily challenge.  The result is slow resolution of failures, lots of resources wasted on investigating issues, and a reactive mode of fixing problems when they affect services.

As part of the Sedona NetFusion Network Intelligence and Automation Platform, Sedona NetFusion Operations focuses on helping you optimize and streamline network operations. Armed with complete and accurate visualization of your network and how it’s performing, you can better:

  • Understand every node, connection, and service path, in your multilayer network Reconcile inventory data with the reality of the network
  • Understand current failures and congestion and their impact on services
  • Pinpoint the root cause of a failure, at any layer
  • Determine the impact of maintenance before taking down services
With Sedona NetFusion Operations you get:
  • 100% accurate network inventory of all layers, vendors, and domains
  • A unified network/services reference for all operations teams
  • Intuitive, web-based UI providing a searchable map view of all resources
  • Visibility of L1-L3 service mapping to IP and optical layers, down to fiber routes
  • Traffic heat maps highlighting congestion and failures in real time
  • Past (time machine) and future (predictive analysis) network views
  • Call-to-action dashboard focusing teams on areas that need their attention
  • Cross-layer root-cause analysis to determine which team needs to focus on the problem
  • Model what-if scenarios to measure the impact of maintenance activity
  • Tailorable performance data analytics engine in a network context
  • Support for SNMP, CLI, YANG, Files, BGP, Syslog, TL1, Kafka, gRPC
With Sedona NetFusion Operations you can:
  • Make your live network the inventory database of record
  • Strengthen all operational systems that rely on accurate inventory data
  • Understand and troubleshoot any service path across VPNs, domains, and layers
  • Prevent unnecessary delays or unanticipated impact in network maintenance
  • Assure service quality and uptime through diversity and shared risks analyses
  • Improve troubleshooting by comparing current and past network state
  • Enrich your network data model with external data sources, such as inventory records, trouble tickets and alarms, providing a network context to OSS managed entities
