BARCELONA, Spain and PLEASANTON, Calif. - March 3, 2015 - WebNMS,a leading provider of scalable software platforms for multi-vendor network management and IoT solutions, and Veryx Technologies, the global leader in CE 2.0 test and measurement, today announced their partnership to deliver fully automated Carrier Ethernet (CE) service orchestration solutions. Their combined solution allows service providers to automate and unify their network operations and offer dynamic, high quality networking services. WebNMS is demonstrating the Symphony Orchestration Platform in Hall 5, Stand 5K21 at Mobile World Congress, running today through March 5 in Barcelona.

As communication service providers operate large networks built on equipment from multiple OEMs, they need solutions that are independent from any individual device vendor to provide them operational flexibility and control their own success. The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) has facilitated this multi-vendor model with their open CE 2.0 specifications. The Third Network vision of the MEF builds upon these popular specifications to define Lifecycle Service Orchestration — a set of best practices and specifications for building automated service management systems to lower operating costs and make service offerings more dynamic.

"Today, turning up, assuring and troubleshooting Carrier Ethernet services is often a cumbersome process and even negatively impacts the end customer’s experience," said Prabhu Ramachandran, director of WebNMS. "Our Symphony Orchestration Platform unifies multi-vendor network management and provides powerful automation tools. By integrating with Veryx SAMTEST, we have extended automation to include active service validation and verification — essential for assured network services."

"Carrier Ethernet service providers are leveraging Veryx SAMTEST to ensure CE 2.0 network integrity," said Madhan Panchaksharam, director of product management at Veryx Technologies. "Our partnership with WebNMS will now help them orchestrate the entire service life cycle and dynamically create, test, deliver and assure the quality of their Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services."

The Symphony Orchestration Platform unifies orchestration of CE, MPLS, SDN and NFV services on multi-vendor networks. Based on field-proven, carrier-scale network management technology, Symphony unifies and automates every aspect of service management, including:

  • inventory
  • provisioning
  • activation
  • assurance

As an experienced leader in multi-vendor networking solutions, WebNMS has bundled an unmatched library of OEM equipment adapters and integrations with open interfaces such as RESTful APIs into Symphony.

Veryx SAMTEST is a fully automated testing and monitoring solution, designed to help service providers in all stages of CE 2.0 service assurance, including service activation testing, monitoring and troubleshooting. The SAMTEST service assurance solution uses distributed test probes managed by a central controller engine that orchestrates test probe operation and third-party Ethernet demarcation devices to provide comprehensive, real-time service visibility. Service providers offering high quality services for mission-critical applications leverage SAMTEST SLA measurement that delivers nanosecond accuracy and continuous performance monitoring at sub-millisecond intervals to ensure SLA compliance with the utmost precision.
