Assure and automate your IP/MPLS network and services
Modern IP/MPLS networks are built on a vendor-agnostic, ecosystem approach with thousands of routing paths—each carrying a myriad number of critical services and 5G network slices.
These dynamic networks need next-gen analytics and observability for informed decision-making and to enable faster activation, assurance, and automation of IP/MPLS services and slices. But traditional monitoring tools fall short of delivering meaningful insights that correlate network performance and routing behavior with service delivery.
Blue Planet® Route Optimization and Analysis (ROA) fills this visibility and management gap in your IP/MPLS networks. It delivers observability into IP/MPLS network and overlay services, including 5G network slices from any tower to the data center. And with ROA’s path computation and provisioning capabilities, you are on the path to service automation.
"Blue Planet Route Optimization and Analysis gives us visibility into the behavior of our network that we never had before. We identify and diagnose problems much faster, and by modeling changes beforehand, we have much higher confidence in our change management process."- José Campos, Technical Project Manager at REN
"Blue Planet Route Optimization and Analysis enables us to assure revenue-generating customer services, including Layer 3 VPNs. Its real-time routing analytics, alerts, and back-in-time forensics provide the visibility we need to detect, diagnose, and fix service delivery issues faster than ever before. In addition, the modeling capability mitigates risks from network changes by allowing us to run what-if analysis and showing us the impact of the changes even before they are made."- Ion Talvan, IP Network Architect, Orange Romania
How Blue Planet ROA helps
While Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), event log, traffic flow, deep packet inspection, application monitoring, and other similar tools are ubiquitous, they do not deliver insights into how routing behavior and network performance impacts service delivery, especially when it comes to 5G and Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC)–driven dynamic networks and services.
ROA captures real-time routing telemetry and correlates it with traffic and performance metrics to deliver both real-time and back-in-time forensics that help assure IP/MPLS services and network slices. This data is further leveraged for network planning with what-if analysis, helping you understand the impact of network changes before they are made.
Finally, ROA’s built-in Path Computation Element (PCE) and support for Path Computation Element Protocol (PCEP) puts network operators and service providers on the path to service automation and assurance, helping accelerate time to revenue, decreasing churn, and containing costs.
