Original Webinar Date: Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Service providers are embracing NFV, moving from limited trials to full operationalization, but are being hampered by their existing OSS. On the other hand, new NFV management systems bring increased complexity and risk of data inconsistencies. All this makes service assurance more problematic and time consuming, grinding operations to a halt.

A comprehensive Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) solution, providing a view into the real-time state of the services and the network, is needed to bring your network operations to life.

This on-demand Heavy Reading webinar discusses:

  • What is service assurance? How is it different from service orchestration? Why is it critical?
  • Clarification of NFV solution components: LSO, NFVO, VNFM, VNFs, VIM, and their role in enabling end-to-end service assurance in a heterogeneous network with NSOs and PNFs
  • How real-time big data analytics is the key to assuring quality of connectivity and cloud services
  • Value of LSO in unlocking the potential opex/capex benefits of NFV
