PETALUMA, Calif. -- Cyan, a provider of SDN, NFV and packet-optical solutions for network operators, today announced support for Cisco ASR 901, ASR 903, ASR 9000 and ME 3600 platforms, as well as the Juniper MX960, MX480 and MX2010 platforms in Cyan's Blue Planet SDN Platform. The new Blue Planet functionality allows customers to automate, manage, inventory and provision Ethernet services across networks built with these devices.
Blue Planet SDN-based network automation technology has already been proven to dramatically shorten time‐to‐revenue by reducing provisioning times from months to hours or minutes in networks around the globe. Blue Planet SDN‐based control over Cisco and Juniper equipment is based on access to standards-based interfaces such as CLI and NETCONF/YANG and provides a critical value-add to service providers who find the management and provisioning of those networks to be complex, time-consuming and operationally expensive.
Support for Ethernet service delivery across the indicated Cisco and Juniper devices is available for demonstration and customer trials immediately. Commercial availability will be part of the next Blue Planet and customer trials immediately. Commercial availability will be part of the next Blue Planet software release, currently scheduled for release by Cyan in Q4 2014.
