Orchestration Brings Software-Defined Operations to Full Life : Come Join Us at the MPLS+SDN+NFVWorld Event in Paris

March 7, 2016 - 1 Comment

Many Service Providers are now moving towards the new and dynamic, Software Defined Network (SDN). It helps them to better accommodate the explosive traffic growth, stay nimble, and cost effectively manage their service offerings. SDN and NFV technologies help operators extract the full value of their network and service assets in terms of scale, performance and reliability. Visibility and availability of these assets alone however, are not sufficient for bringing software defined operations to full life. This is where real-time, automated orchestration comes into play.

At the MPLS+SDN+NFVWorld held in Paris this month, we will demonstrate the powerful benefits of Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) enabled by Tail-f, a YANG model driven orchestration solution designed for highly dynamic and programmble networks. We will showcase how Cisco NSO helps simplify the end-to-end lifecycle management of services that help software defined operators to make the most of SDN and NFV. The demos span both fulfillment and assurance operations. You will also see a deep dive webinar on ‘Orchestrated Assurance’, as a part of an ETSI Proof-of-Concept project as described in an earlier blog by Dr. Stefan Vallin, Principal Architect of Cisco.  Telstra has chosen the Cisco NSO for deploying orchestrated assurance and by doing so, Telstra expects to significantly boost the level of automation and assurance for their enterprise and business customers.

We’d like to invite you to come and see us at our booths to talk live with experts and learn more about how the Cisco NSO can help you.

Please take a moment to download this Heavy Reading white paper, “Service Orchestration and Network Virtualization : A Lifecycle View” for more insight on the changing and crucial role of orchestration in this new era of virtualization.

We look forward to seeing you at the event!
