Sedona announced that Vodafone has selected its NetFusion as the Hierarchical Controller to create a flexible, software-defined transport network.

The solution is designed to deliver coordinated management of different vendors and technologies, to build on-demand transport services and maximize service availability.

At the recent MWC 2019, Vodafone and Sedona Systems demonstrated an innovative approach to service provisioning and assurance across multi- domain Transport networks at Mobile World Congress.

The demo showcased advanced unified service provisioning across a multi-domain network with multilayer service-to-fiber visualization capabilities and automatic traffic rerouting when a fault is anticipated through AI-based predictive analysis. The demo was based on the Sedona’s NetFusion product.

Santiago Tenorio, Head of Network Strategy & Architecture, Vodafone
NetFusion provides a real-time view of the network and services, abstracting all its complexity to a single and easy-to-manage model. This unlocks many automation opportunities to deliver a highly resilient and programmable network and allows Vodafone to deliver a differentiated customer experience.

Ori Gerstel, Co-founder and CTO, Sedona
Mass 5G deployment are right around the corner, and forward-looking operators like Vodafone are getting ready for it. With a dramatic increase in the number of network elements, complexity will skyrocket.
