Accedian has partnered with Lanner Electronics to integrate its fully virtualized SkyLIGHT performance assurance platform into Lanner’s x86 network platform.

The combined solution will bring performance assurance and visibility to Lanner’s service provider customers deploying its platforms for universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) applications.

Service providers are accelerating virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE) and uCPE roll-outs using a mix of centralized, distributed, and hybrid deployment models with their enterprise customers. While bringing greater customer service flexibility and cost savings, service providers also need complete quality of experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS) visibility to manage service level agreements (SLAs) and identify network problems in their virtualized service deployments. Accedian’s SkyLIGHT provides Lanner’s x86 uCPE service provider customers with the ability to establish 24x7 network performance visibility for managing SLAs and diagnosing the root cause of performance issues.

Accedian SkyLIGHT extends virtualized instrumentation layer capabilities and includes service assurance, monitoring of bandwidth usage, service activation testing, and network fault isolation. 

Additionally, when deploying SkyLIGHT with the Accedian Nano module, it offers features such as integrated MEF CE2.0 demarcation, remote packet capture and bandwidth utilization monitoring capabilities to the vCPE platform.

Sven Freudenfeld, Director Global Business Development Telecom Application, Lanner
Customers are using our x86 vCPE and uCPE platforms in a variety of deployment models, and Accedian’s virtualized SkyLIGHT platform now allows us to bring virtualized performance assurance capabilities to our customers, while also preserving native diagnostic, troubleshooting, and SLA assurance in their traditional demarcation devices.

Patrick Ostiguy, CEo, Accedian 
SkyLIGHT has already been adopted by more than a dozen tier one mobile network operators who need our solution to assure their virtualized networks. Enterprise services are also undergoing radical virtualization and the service providers that support them need performance assurance solutions to match.
