Route Optimization and Assurance is used by the world’s leading network operators, enterprises and government entities to assure the delivery of critical services
The Blue Planet Route Optimization and Assurance (ROA) products fill a key management gap in IP/MPLS networks. While SNMP, log, NetFlow, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), and other tools enable traditional network management, only the ROA capabilities provide real-time visibility into how routing behavior affects service delivery. They provide powerful analytics and traffic engineering capabilities that can be integrated with other components of the Blue Planet software suite to accelerate the transition to a self-configuring, self-optimizing, adaptive network.
Engineered for SDN, Blue Planet’s ROA capabilities capture real-time telemetry from network devices as well as from domain controllers and service orchestrators such as Blue Planet Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO). By providing visibility into the IP/MPLS network control plane, users can see exactly how specific traffic traverses the Layer 3 network and precisely where performance is abnormal. Sub-optimal conditions missed by traditional tools can quickly be identified to correct possible service delivery issues and use network resources more efficiently.
Blue Planet Route Optimization and Assurance comprises four products:
Route Explorer® collects and analyzes all IGP and BGP routing events to provide real-time visibility into how routing behavior affects service delivery. Download the Route Explorer data sheet for more details.
Performance Explorer collects SNMP-based performance data from network devices to enable sophisticated root cause analysis by correlating changes in performance to path changes caused by routing events. Download the Performance Explorer data sheet for more details.
