MONTREAL, Canada -- Accedian Networks today introduced the SkyLIGHT™ VCX, the industry's first performance assurance controller employing Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to bring advanced monitoring capabilities network-wide, without the need for expensive, high-end test equipment. By eliminating key cost, scalability, and coverage barriers to network performance visibility, service providers can now more cost-effectively ensure a better quality of experience (QoE) for users.

"The VCX is a radically more efficient approach to network performance monitoring, combining all the benefits of virtualization without compromising test speed or precision," said Patrick Ostiguy, President & CEO of Accedian. "Accedian is doing to performance monitoring what Roku did to TV. We're using the minimum hardware required at each monitoring point, while using NFV to turn ultra-compact modules into full-blown test sets, probes, and analyzers."

The VCX Controller works together with Accedian's Nano smart SFP (optical transponder) and compact gigabit Ethernet modules to deliver multi-flow traffic generation and ability to monitor the performance of thousands of flows. The modules are easy to install and cost up to 90% less than existing solutions, enabling service providers to realize the significant capital and operational efficiencies promised by an NFV architecture, while their customers benefit from a fully assured network.

The VCX Controller combines centralized control with distributed test traffic generation to offer full mesh and segmented testing that would be otherwise impossible due to cost, deployment effort, and feature shortcomings. The VCX Controller solves the challenges inherent with legacy solutions, which act only as simple test reflectors and lack the ability to initiate and generate test sessions.
