Accedian, Cyan to Demo Automated Provisioning
MONTREAL -- Furthering their partnership, Accedian Networks, the leader in Performance Assured Networking solutions, and Cyan (NYSE: CYNI), a leading provider of software-defined networking (SDN) and packet-optical solutions for network operators, today announced that they will deliver a comprehensive solutions demonstration to showcase the power of performance assured networks and flow-through network and service management as it relates to a multi-vendor environment during the upcoming COMPTEL event.
As end-user customers demand more and more reliable, high capacity services for applications such as mobile backhaul, wholesale transport and business Ethernet, there is a real need to deliver best-in-class solutions which can measure service performance, deliver precise (SLA Driven) performance information and report on the overall health of the network to support the carriers’ business operations.
Providing rich service definition, orchestration, and monitoring solutions is critical to many carrier environments today. Working together, the combined solution of Accedian’s MetroNODE LT and Cyan’s Blue Planet enables service providers to automate the following:
1. Service provisioning
2. Service activation testing with RFC 2544 and Y.1564
3. Continuous service performance monitoring with Y.1731 for Layer 2 and RFC 5357 TWAMP for Layer 3 based services.
