Continuing to advance its network virtualization strategy, Verizon has implemented an orchestrated real-time analysis engine that aggregates IP and optical network data to successfully provide service assurance for NFV deployments. Verizon has chosen CENX to provide the tools that deliver a unified view of the state of physical and virtual components across multiple network systems and data centers.
Operational complexities increase as service providers implement NFV across networks. A singular view, such as that provided by CENX, simplifies those complexities with views of network inventory, service topology, faults, performance, and usage, said CENX. This information is then correlated with KPIs to generate end-to-end performance monitoring.
At the same time, Verizon Enterprise Solutions has selected Ericsson to provide end-to-end dynamic orchestration, closed-loop service assurance and virtual network function (VNF) onboarding and testing for its virtualized global Managed Network Services offerings, including Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD WAN) services.
This allows Verizon customers to take advantage of self-service ordering and configuration, end-to-end automation and flexible payment models resulting in more efficient service delivery. The self-service offerings will give enterprises the flexibility to dynamically combine virtualized features from a catalog of service options such as security packages, WAN optimization and data center load balancing for tighter service integration and better performance.
