WASHINGTON and PLEASANTON, Calif. — November 17, 2014 : WebNMS, the leading provider of multi-vendor network management and IoT solutions, today announced that it will showcase its innovation in network service automation at MEF GEN14. The event, being held at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Washington, D.C., has gathered industry thought leaders and decision makers from across the provider community, many of whom see orchestration as critical to their profitability.

At MEF GEN14, WebNMS is highlighting automation solutions for MEF-defined Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services. The WebNMS Carrier Ethernet Solution enhances key network and service management capabilities required for dynamic services. The WebNMS solutions support a wide variety of use cases, but at the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) conference, WebNMS is focusing on critical new capabilities enabling automation of MEF-defined services, use cases and best practice workflows across multi-vendor, Carrier Ethernet 2.0 networks. These new capabilities within the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet solution are prerequisites for provider orchestration of many existing, well-defined services and future services based on SDN and NFV.

“WebNMS is excited to take advantage of the opportunity MEF GEN14 offers to showcase the innovations we are developing to support on-demand network services,” said Prabhu Ramachandran, director of WebNMS. “Service providers are looking to automate their operations through orchestration, not just for SDN, but for today’s bread and butter services like Carrier Ethernet. At MEF GEN14, WebNMS is showcasing orchestrated Carrier Ethernet services with new solutions that give operators and their customers dramatically increased service visibility and control.”


A MEF GEN14 silver sponsor, WebNMS is exhibiting its entire product portfolio, including MEF, MPLS, SDN and NFV solutions. Key activities include:

  • At the MEF GEN14 Proof of Concept Showcase, WebNMS has a live, multi-vendor CE 2.0 network, built through close collaboration with industry partners Omnitron Systems, a leading provider of connectivity products, and VeEX, a global leader in telecom and CATV test solutions. On this network, WebNMS orchestrates the fulfillment of dynamic requests for assured services through a customer portal with automated end-to-end service provisioning and remote automated service activation and testing. This automated workflow highlights a practical solution for reducing truck rolls and other provider OPEX costs.
  • At booth 403, WebNMS is exhibiting its complete set of products, including the new Symphony Orchestration Platform, the first solution to combine unified network management with a flexible software framework for workflow automation.
Also, on Wednesday, November 19 at 3:35 p.m., Prabhu Ramachandran is participating in a panel discussion titled “Simplifying and Accelerating SLA-Assured Ethernet with Automation and NFV.”
