EXFO delivers active service assurance in Amdocs ONAP enabling real-time orchestrated service lifecycle management

Complete end-to-end service monitoring and testing supporting autonomous workflows with critical service and network KPIs for managing customer experience

QUEBEC CITY, Sept. 21, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF), the communications industry's test, monitoring and analytics experts, today announced the integration of their active service assurance solution into Amdocs NFV powered by ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform). Delivering real-time, active testing and monitoring functionality as an integral part of ONAP, provides the foundation for fully autonomous service assurance in support of orchestrated service lifecycle management operations models.

Highlights:

  • EXFO's active service assurance probes and test orchestration platform provide NFV-based service activation testing and real-time service monitoring. The solution delivers 100% end-to-end visibility of virtualized services and network performance.
  • Closed-loop, autonomous network and service management solutions demand extensive insights to support policy driven operations. EXFO's active service assurance solution supports the industry's most complete set of service and network KPIs, enabling unmatched, end-to-end visibility for quality of experience optimization.
  • Partnering to deliver open, standards-based networks. As a key member of Amdocs Open Network Partners Program, EXFO's solutions are fully ONAP onboarded and certified, greatly simplifying adoption, reducing cost and allowing carriers to focus on the delivering new, innovative services demanded by their customers.

"Virtualized networks and services challenge the carrier's ability to manage end-to-end service quality since they are continuously changing" says Abdelkrim Benamar, EXFO's Vice President, Service Assurance, Systems and Services. "Embedding active service assurance in the service chain and making it an integral part of the service definition, gives service providers the ability to automate the entire service lifecycle and drive autonomous network and service optimization–unleashing the true benefits of virtualization".

"With EXFO's vVerifier virtual network functions onboarded to Amdocs NFV powered by ONAP, CSPs can easily and efficiently build self-monitoring services and closed-loop operations policies, reducing time to market and operational costs, and improving customer experience," said Yogen Patel, VP, Head of Marketing for Amdocs Open Network.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
