WebNMS and Omnitron Systems Partner to Support SDN-Enabled Carrier Ethernet Service Automation
PLEASANTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
a division of Zoho
Corp. and a leading global provider of network and element
management solutions, and Omnitron
Systems, a leading innovator and manufacturer of MEF (News - Alert) Carrier
Ethernet 2.0 solutions, announced a partnership to integrate Omnitron's
iConverter GM4 Network Interface Devices (NIDs) with the Carrier
Ethernet component of a comprehensive solution. Together, the two
companies deliver dynamic provisioning and operation of network services
that enables migration to carrier Software Defined Networking (SDN)
As end-user applications increasingly demand rapid delivery of high
bandwidth services, communications service providers need to automate
service provisioning and operations on their expanding deployed networks
to keep pace. Carrier services, including mobile backhaul, cloud
computing, data center connectivity and business Ethernet all rely on
sophisticated networking and transport equipment to fulfill Service
Level Agreements (SLAs) with high availability and performance assurance.
Omnitron's (News - Alert) iConverter Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified Network Interface
Devices have been integrated with the WebNMS Framework Orchestration
Platform to provide a powerful, SDN solution that streamlines critical,
end-to-end service orchestration with the following capabilities:
Elastic service creation and delivery
Automated service provisioning and activation testing
Continuous service performance monitoring
Dynamic service adjustments through a customer portal via a RESTful API
The Omnitron/WebNMS integration enables Carrier Ethernet 2.0 service
automation on a network of Omnitron iConverter GM4 NIDs orchestrated by
the WebNMS Framework. The cloud-based WebNMS Customer Portal emphasizes
the dynamic nature of SDN services by making live adjustments through
Omnitron's G4 NID flexible service provisioning interfaces.
"Integration with WebNMS leverages the latest Carrier Ethernet 2.0
service testing, performance assurance, fault management and service
protection provided by Omnitron's iConverter Carrier Ethernet 2.0
Network Interface Devices," said Sankar Ramachandran, director of
Telecom Product Marketing of Omnitron Systems. "This partnership enables
our customers to reduce their operational costs with automated service
creation and activation testing. The partnership also provides a
cloud-based portal to respond to customer demands in an incredibly
efficient and simple manner."
Extending monitoring, control of performance, and accelerating service
provisioning helps communications service providers differentiate
services by improving the end-user experience. Automated service
provisioning and activation are essential to control operational costs.
As performance demands increase, enabling and orchestrating dynamic
service adjustments will become increasingly important as service
provider Carrier Ethernet and MPLS networks become larger and more
complex. The graphic user interface of the WebNMS Customer SLA Cloud
Portal provides intuitive, fluid service control to enable on-demand,
end-to-end service creation and activation by the end user.
"Many of our carrier customers seamlessly manage multi-vendor Carrier
Ethernet and MPLS networks with WebNMS SDN solutions," said Prabhu
Ramachandran, director of WebNMS. "By collaborating with Omnitron, we
are showing our carrier customers a smooth path to dynamic services.
This partnership enables WebNMS carrier SDN orchestration of Carrier
Ethernet services on the iConverter GM4 NID. Omnitron's proven
demarcation solutions provide an exciting vehicle to unify service
orchestration across Carrier Ethernet, MPLS and transport networking."
