Network Lifecycle Management Platform

INTENT-BASED OPEN NETWORKING

Telecommunications network efficiency and ease of use are becoming an important component for business success. These days hyper-scale operators (biggest players with thousands and thousands routers) invest in self-developed solutions by leveraging on combination of open equipment and open software. Such leverage requires huge efforts and may sound infeasible and focus-loosing for majority of medium to large companies.

Open Networking Lifecycle Management Platform

for Telecom Networks

Our lifecycle management platform provides single intuitive GUI to manage on-premise networks of any size effortlessly with efficiency and technology leverage previously available to hyper-scale operators only.

Reducing CapEx/OpEx up to 10X. Saving time up to 100X.

Our 24/7/365 TAC is available by phone/e-mail/messenger/ticketing and all inquiries are directly addressed to experienced specialists acting as a single point of contact for the whole system.

We guide our customers through the whole open networking transformation journey.

Elastic Broadband

Our ready-to-go elastic broadband functionality allows network operators to partition their transport network and securely provide on-demand wholesale services to their consumers (external or internal users). 

 The platform comes with integrated billing system which is able to calculate the price based on regions, links, transit locations, bandwidth, number of ports, incorporates different 95-th percentile and discount options, works in pre-paid and post-paid mode, shows prices in local currency. Additional custom functionality can be developed by request.

 

Network Visibility

The platform provides easy to access and easy to setup visibility. Traffic statistics are available for every defined service plus platform visualizes relevant port status, service status or mac activity in an eye-catching way

 Custom statistic boards can be created in a few clicks for grouping/summing for easy overview. These tools are designed to be used by network engineers, by managers and by internal/external customers.

Network Topology

L3 fabric design allows building transmission networks of every topology. BGP protocol which is used to propagate information about network is the most scalable, allows full equal cost link usage and eliminates usage of old protocols and methods like spanning tree or LAG(link aggregation).

 Customer services such as IP-Transit, L2 VPN, Audio/Video streaming, VoIP and others are being transported on top of L3 fabric.

This design allows any combination of certified and supported hardware. Even high availability can be organized by using different models or even different vendors.

  

Elastic cross  – connect 

Elastic cross-connect is automated approach for meet-me-room in carrier hotels or optical cross rack telecom facility or optical patch panel in one of the remote shelters of optical backbone.

The solution is made by integration with 3D MEMS photonic switch. A single switch can cross-connect 160 or 320 ports of dark fiber pairs in a non-blocking design.

The whole lifecycle is managed through XCloud Networks GUI.

Besides pushing cross-connect configuration towards photonic switch our platform actively collects telemetry information regarding light level from every single port, telemetry information is analyzed by our analytics engine and tailored alarms are sent to relevant users to accelerate preventive actions as well as to help in the troubleshooting process.

 

Data Center Integration

Our lifecycle management platform is also available for data center networking which basically means that in addition to described functionality all the data center needs such as physical/virtual server connection, server load balancing, security access control, virtual private network, and encryption are available under a single platform.

Monitoring & Maintenance 

Our integrated fault prediction and detection system constantly follow telemetry information from every hardware unit.

   In case of maintenance has to be done, the device can be safely powered off after enabling maintenance mode which tells every neighboring device to re-route the traffic.

   In the event of switch replacement it should not necessarily be replaced by the same model or even same vendor, just any of validated switches with amount and types of ports you need, then network operating system can be installed automatically and configuration of the previously removed switch can be automatically restored.
