CKN: Orchestrated Assurance: What Is It, and Why Do I Need It?

Event Summary

Service providers aim to deliver network services more quickly with assured customer quality. However, as networks are becoming increasingly software-defined and programmable, the rate at which they change is also rising, driven by network-on-demand offerings and self-service portals. In this dynamic environment, traditional test and assurance solutions cannot keep up, and if they can, they bring unacceptable operational costs. These traditional hardware-bound solutions also hobble agility and innovation, and in today’s evolving networks, innovation is crucial to staying competitive.

Model-driven Orchestrated Assurance offers an approach to bridging the gap between service fulfillment and assurance. Software-based test agents, which are well-suited to a dynamic network environment, perform end-to-end activation tests and active monitoring that are automated throughout the full service lifecycle in closed-feedback loops. This enables service providers to automatically validate SLAs, discover issues earlier, and resolve problems more quickly.

Join this special Cisco Knowledge Network webinar in which orchestration experts from Cisco and our Solutions Plus Partner Netrounds will explain how the proven integration between the market-leading Cisco NSO and Netrounds' Orchestrated Assurance solutions enables customers to introduce automated assurance into their networks with confidence and ease.

We will also share real-life use case examples of the business benefits that can be gained through network orchestration and automation.
