VMware announced an agreement to acquire the technology and team of Dell EMC Service Assurance Suite which covers network health, performance monitoring and root cause analysis for CSPs and their customers.
The addition of the Dell EMC Service Assurance Suite technology to the VMware Telco NFV portfolio equips CSPs with the ability to maintain operational reliability in their core network, cloud, and IT domains across physical and virtual infrastructure - enabling them to operationalize competitive new services faster, says VMware.
VMware, a leader in network functions virtualization (NFV) infrastructure, will leverage the Dell EMC Service Assurance Suite to help customers accelerate their virtual network function deployments with end-to-end service assurance once the deal closes.
After the deal closes, Dell EMC customers will continue to have access to the Dell EMC Service Assurance Suite’s solutions pursuant to a commercial reseller agreement in place between VMware and Dell EMC. This acquisition demonstrates VMware’s growing commitment to the telecommunications industry.
