Level 3 Communications has selected Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO), enabled by Tail-f to deliver on-demand Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solutions for enterprises and video providers.
With the support of Cisco NSO, Level 3 developed a programmable wide area network (WAN) to automate the full range of data services and multi-vendor devices in its markets around the world. The company can also orchestrate the entire service lifecycle - including activation, testing and ongoing service-level assurance - through a single data model.
It also enables agile Hybrid Cloud Connectivity where customers can order Ethernet services such as E-Line, E-Access and E-Lynk, Level 3’s public cloud connection service, with flexible bandwidth options.
Level 3 said that it now manages more than 75,000 different network devices around the world. It is offering the same automated services, with the same scalability, high availability and redundancy across geographies, regardless of the underlying infrastructure.
