WebNMS Launches NFV/SDN Orchestration Platform
PLEASANTON, Calif. -- WebNMS, a leading provider of network management and IoT solutions, today announced the launch of the Symphony Orchestration Platform, a unified software suite for automation of service provider network operations. Symphony enables carriers and other service providers to efficiently transform existing static service offerings into dynamic services and introduce new SDN and NFV-based services.
To meet the growing demand for dynamic network services, providers need solutions to transform their existing network and service management systems into orchestration platforms that automate existing operations and rapidly incorporate new, on-demand services as the market evolves. Until now, service provider network management silos have inhibited effective orchestration. An industry first, Symphony combines unified network management with workflow automation for dynamic service provisioning and assurance across multi-vendor networks. This unification enables automation of existing services, such as Carrier Ethernet and MPLS, and integration of emerging services based on SDN and NFV.
Symphony eliminates operational silos by unifying all management functions across end-to-end, multi-vendor and multi-layer networks. Based on the industry-leading WebNMS Framework, Symphony unification enables efficient automation of existing services, grounded on well-defined specifications such as those from the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF). Symphony orchestration employs key technologies that enable the seamless integration of SDN and NFV services. These technologies include YANG modeling, REST APIs and big data analytics.
