Ushering 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, 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 and analytics for your multi-layer network?
The Blue Planet™ Multi-Layer Networking (MLN) solution does this for you. Built on top of the Blue Planet Route Optimization and Analysis (ROA) and Blue Planet Multi Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO) products, this vendor-agnostic solution provides answers to many of your multi-layer network problems. With integrated visibility and analysis into both the IP/MPLS and optical layers, the MLN solution helps you build an agile network—so you can activate services in hours and resolve service delivery issues in minutes.

Demo: Blue Planet Multi-Layer Networking Solution
Multi-Layer Networks are complex to manage unless you have access to unified visibility and analysis for both the IP and optical layer from a single solution. In this demo video we demonstrate how a network operator can use Blue Planet Multi-Layer Networking solution to quickly find if a service delivery issue was caused at the IP layer or the optical layer, and thereby speed up troubleshooting in multi-layer networks.
