Viavi Solutions has launched its intelligent testing platform, named Nitro, that automatically delivers real-time test and measurement data from network instruments directly to software-based planning, provisioning, assurance and optimization applications.
The new platform helps service providers and enterprises reduce costs and complexity while optimizing performance throughout the entire network lifecycle. It works seamlessly across mobile, fiber, cable, cloud and enterprise networks and this platform maximizes the value of current investments in Viavi instruments and software solutions, presently deployed by over 200 network operators globally.
Leveraging their current Viavi installed base enables customers to cost-effectively manage their migration from today’s static network deployments to next-generation, policy-based automated dynamic networks. The first solution in this new family is Nitro vNet Fusion offering virtual test, service activation and performance monitoring.
The testing and measurement firm said it designed the new platform keeping the requirements from its customer base of Tier-1 service providers, enterprises and network equipment manufacturers in mind. Nitro stands for Network Integrated Test, Real-time analytics and Optimization technology platform and connects real-time testing and activation data from network instruments with software-based planning, provisioning, assurance and optimization probes and applications, creating a unique end-to-end view of the network lifecycle.
In this way, Nitro addresses the needs of today’s separate business teams, plus the evolution to automated end-to-end service delivery, in the same common platform.
Along with the platform, the company also launched vNet Fusion, a next-generation virtual Ethernet lifecycle management solution for test, service activation, performance monitoring and troubleshooting on all network layers. Fusion provides a valuable set of tools that deliver repeatable, standards-based test methodologies to monitor and ensure network performance and verify Service Level Agreements in both virtual and legacy mixed networks.
Leveraging the Viavi instruments and physical test infrastructure, Fusion enables service providers and enterprises to resolve customer complaints faster, increase customer satisfaction with Ethernet and IP services, divert technician truck rolls with helpdesk based remote testing, and reduce technician coordination for RFC6349-compliant TrueSpeed tests.
