InfoVista announced the launch of a real-time and dynamic service assurance platform for its Service Assurance solution, VistaInsight.

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) can benefit from VistaInsight to accelerate their virtualization (NFV) programs through a real-time view of the network, support for closed-loop automation, and enrichment of Big Data.

CSP networks are undergoing a transition from legacy physical components to a new, virtualized infrastructure. During this transition, there will be a lengthy period during which complex, hybrid physical and virtualized networks will co-exist. This hybrid network environment demands speed and agility in the provisioning and deployment of new services in both the virtualized and traditional environments.

If a Service Assurance system does not keep up with the speed of service provisioning, is not synchronized with the changes in network topology, and cannot ingest and enrich data from multiple sources, CSPs will be unable to deliver and maintain the velocity required to meet business demands. To achieve such levels of service in both virtualized and non-virtualized networks, Service Assurance systems need to be open, agile, and highly responsive.

VistaInsight Real-time and Dynamic Service Assurance platform accelerates virtualization programs by exposing the platform capabilities to the entire CSP ecosystem. This is achieved through an extensive set of open APIs, telemetry sourcing of data, dynamically synchronized state of the network topology, and a real-time view of network and service performance. By streaming data in real-time, VistaInsight is dedicated to increasing business agility and interoperability in both virtualized and non-virtualized networks.

VistaInsight’s open API capability is key for the success of both the design- and run-time of upcoming NFV hybrid networks, and for designing NFV hybrid service models. Through its real-time dynamic service modelling, support for zero-touch operations, and support for wider and deeper analytics, CSPs can obtain immediate business benefits.
