Ushering in unified multi-layer network management
Customers are demanding faster activation of new transport services and better service delivery assurance from network providers. But for network providers, doing this in multi-layer networks that consist of both IP/MPLS and optical layers is complex and time-consuming. Multi-layer networks have diverse network teams working in silos and managing each layer separately with little or no coordination between them. As a result, it takes weeks to months to do the planning and path computation required to activate a new service and many hours for service assurance—all leading to SLA violations and unhappy customers.
Would you like to avoid the finger-pointing between your different network teams and gain unified, single-pane-of-glass visibility into your multi-layer network?
Blue Planet’s Multi-Layer Networking (MLN) does this for you. A key use case that combines Blue Planet Route Optimization and Analysis (ROA) and Blue Planet Orchestration (BPO) products, MLN delivers unified visibility from Layer 0 to 3 in a single-pane-of-glass view. The unified view from MLN helps you quickly understand your multi-layer network without swivel-chair management or awaiting reports from different teams. You can see the IP overlay and the optical underlay and drill down up to Layer 0. This unified view adds agility, speed, and accuracy to network planning, service provisioning, and root-cause analysis.
