Proactive Network Operations

Modernize operations with AI-driven closed-loop automation

Simplify network and services assurance

Existing solutions for troubleshooting and resolving problems in the network were developed to support static networks and services—not today’s network, which is increasingly dynamic and complex. Reactive processes based on scrutinizing events and alarms aren't enough. You need to predict potential service issues—such as an impending network outage or limited bandwidth that simply can’t handle a surge in demand—and pre-emptively resolve them before they impact your customers.

Our Blue Planet™ Proactive Network Operations (PNO) solution uses advanced machine learning (ML) algorithms, combined with policy and orchestration, to do just that. And the best part? Your customers will never know there was a potential network problem.

The PNO solution is ideal for service providers who have (or are thinking about building) their own data lakes and want to experience the powerful benefit of AI-driven closed-loop automation to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction—while increasing staff productivity and reducing network troubleshooting costs.

Combined with specialized professional services that provide AI expertise and support key system integration points, the PNO solution is designed for easy evaluation and rapid deployment, helping providers realize key business outcomes quickly—without the inherent risk, delay, and costs associated with testing, qualifying, and implementing alternative solutions.

PNO Overview

PNO predicts impending network outages and prescribes actions to avoid them

Ciena acquires Centina, adding multi-domain and multi-layer network and service assurance capabilities to Blue Planet. With this addition, PNO solution provides self-healing and self-optimization of the network and enables closed-loop automation essential for building the Adaptive Network.
