What if you could guarantee service quality
for virtualized customer edge services?
Virtualized customer premise equipment (vCPE) promises faster, more automated delivery of new connectivity and services to enterprises. However, the cultural change required by virtualized networking is a paradigm shift. Managing complex multi-domain services delivered through multi-vendor, multi-domain, and physical and virtual infrastructure represents a serious operations challenge.
CENX enables service providers to take advantage of vCPE solutions, while avoiding increased operations complexity and costs. Bridge operations between physical and network function virtual infrastructure (NFVI) with a trusted, single pane view. Accelerate and assure new services at the customer premise with CENX’s real-time operations and automation capabilities.
CENX enables end-to-end visualization, assurance, and closed-loop automation across
mobile network services and vEPC infrastructure
WHAT IF YOU COULD VISUALIZE ALL YOUR ENTERPRISE SERVICES AND APPLICATIONS IN A SINGLE PANE OF GLASS?
Network Function Virtualized Infrastructure (NFVI) can become another silo if not implemented with a solution that bridges operations between physical and virtual infrastructure. CENX provides at-a-glance and detailed views of network inventory, service topology, fault, performance, and utilization for across the physical and virtual infrastructure, all in a single pane of glass. Visualize and monitor the performance of virtual firewalls (vFW), virtual load balancers (vLB), and other applications in the same view.
WHAT IF YOU COULD ACCELERATE MULTI-VENDOR VCPE SERVICE DELIVERY AND ASSURE SERVICE QUALITY OF EXPERIENCE (QOE)?
Virtualization of the customer edge promises a reduction of, if not an end to, out-dated, difficult to upgrade, physical CPE, as well as, a reduction in truck rolls required to turn-up new, and troubleshoot existing services.
CENX integrates rapidly with multiple technologies and vendors, and provides a common point of control across physical and virtual infrastructure. CENX’s end-to-end view of service state, topology, and performance enables network and service operations personnel to understand the impact of a specific alarm, the most probable root cause, and immediately identify impacted customers.
WHAT IF YOU COULD CLOSE THE LOOP BETWEEN ASSURANCE AND FULFILLMENT WITH AUTOMATION?
Virtualization also increases the opportunity for wireline service providers to deliver a range of differentiated, value-added services, such as Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi), hosted VoIP, virus protection, load balancing, and many others. CENX compares established capacity forecasting policies against current utilization metrics available at all layers (virtual network functions, virtual machines, and network function virtualization infrastructure) and then determines whether to trigger orchestrated scaling. Once the new VNFs are instantiated, CENX’s Service Information Model (SIM) is dynamically updated with information about the customer, the service topology/inventory, physical and virtual network functions, and the VIM enabling a closed loop.
Provide key input parameters required to instantiate and configure a VNF, as well as, KPIs for monitoring across the MANO stack layers automatically with TOSCA templates. Enable rapid and intelligent build-out of new, assured services with CENX’s real-time operations and automation capabilities.
