Sedona’s NetFusion automatically discovers, aggregates and analyzes network data from multiple online systems, optical and IP sources, providing a unified, real-time and accurate network-wide data model that is consumed via different NetFusion applications. These applications reduce the complexity, cost, time and resources you need to plan, forecast and operate the optimal network infrastructure for delivering unrivaled services, performance and reliability.
For SDN networks, NetFusion acts as a Hierarchical SDN controller for transport network, IP, optics and microwave. As such, it provides full lifecycle of L1 to L3 services over multi-layer and across domains and vendors.
NetFusion acquires core and metro network data through a patented and automated discovery method that maps topology, traffic, and services into a live, unified network model. This multi-vendor view extracts valuable network knowledge and makes it available through a three-dimensional UI or an API. Visibility includes all cross-layer and cross-domain connections, offering a unique, network-wide, service-to-fiber view. This depth and quality of NetFusion data takes the guesswork out of network operations, leaving you free to focus on offering revenue-generating services. The NetFusion platform also eases the architectural transition from legacy to SDN with an adaptable architecture that permits direct access to network elements, legacy EMS/NMS, and domain controllers. As your solution develops, changes are not required to network equipment, domain controllers, or service orchestrators, thus powering the way to the next evolutionary step in network control.
