Together with Skylight, Cisco can offer simple and expedient deployments of new services from day 1 at service turn-up. In addition, Skylight delivers continuous performance monitoring for fully automated in-lifecycle management of the network and applications.

With these capabilities at their disposal, Cisco is given increased visibility and observability across all network types, as well as greater performance visibility, data granularity, and the ability to detect performance issues that other solutions typically miss.

“Service providers are always looking for ways to securely and cost-effectively improve customer experience, differentiate services, and enhance operational efficiency,” said Kevin Wollenweber, Vice President of Networking, Mass-Scale Infrastructure Group, Cisco. “With Accedian Skylight for Cisco Network Automation, we are helping them to achieve dynamic service assurance, driven by powerful analytics and automation, while providing a better experience for subscribers.”
