AT&T announced that it is migrating network probe functions to the cloud with a new service assurance software from RADCOM. RADCOM is a leading provider of NFV-ready service assurance and customer experience management solutions for Communications Service Providers (CSPs).
This move supports AT&T’s continual shift to network virtualization. AT&T will use RADCOM's service assurance software, MaveriQ to deploy vProbes as virtual network functions(VNFs) running on the AT&T Integrated Cloud (AIC).
RADCOM said that AT&T has selected its solution because of its functional strengths, especially in virtualization, scalability, performance and efficiency. The company claims that MaveriQ offers exceptional performance with terabit scalability, delivering the most cost-effective and innovative software-based service assurance solution.
MaveriQ enables operators to migrate to NFV while supporting both physical, hybrid and virtual networks. In the NFV environment, RADCOM’s offering delivers service assurance in a fully orchestrated and virtualized solution for on-demand probing, onboarding, automated vertical and horizontal scaling and self-healing, all while slotting seamlessly into a rich NFV ecosystem.
