Deliver and monitor End-to-End (E2E) services in a mixed physical and virtualized network require new approaches as well as excellent understanding of the legacy systems. Based on our experience, Data Ductus is the best choice to guide the customer in how to orchestrate their E2E services in a mixed Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks (NFV/SDN), regardless of underlying technology.
Many Equipment Providers are transforming their legacy systems into Virtual Network Functions (VNF) in order to provide their products as Software as a Service (SaaS). This new approach introduces new challenges for providing management functions. Data Ductus has years of experience in building management solutions on both agent and manager side.
Service providers need to excel in bringing up and monitoring existing and new E2E services in a secure way in a rapidly changing network environment consisting of both physical and virtual network functions. By using best practice in Management and Orchestration (MANO) as well as the Element Management in Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks (NFV/SDN) we bring the markets best tools and software expertise to your organization.
Network and Service Management is one of Ductus strong areas with many years of successful integration of OSS systems. From a TMN Layer perspective, our focus areas have been from the Element Management Layer up to Service Management, while on an eTOM perspective our main areas of expertise have been on fulfilment and assurance. Since the introduction of NFV/SDN, our expertise has extended to also include the orchestration of E2E services in a virtualized environment, not only orchestrating the IT environment but also the network itself.
We always ensure that the customer gets the best solution for their needs, and although we have extensive experience with products like NSO from Cisco, Smarts from EMC, TeMIP from HP, vSphere from VMware, etc., we always remain product independent. We believe that our domain knowledge in building management solutions for customers is far more important.
