At this year's MEF17 conference, the focus was all around the changing landscape of the industry. With growing investments in technologies such as SD-WAN, NFV, and SDN, the communications industry is experiencing a massive shift from static connectivity services to more dynamic and agile services.
As service providers virtualize their networks, they require a solution that can "close the loop" to automate the monitoring and optimization of services. During the event, CENX answered this need with its release of CENX 7.
The latest version of our software breaks down the barriers between virtual and hybrid network infrastructure and delivers guaranteed service quality through the enablement of closed-loop assurance automation. With CENX 7 service providers can rapidly identify, isolate, and resolve network and data center events, often before services and customers are impacted.
CENX also took home some hardware at the MEF 2017 Awards ceremony in Orlando, FL. Our team was presented the “Third Network Technology Solutions – Service Assurance” award in recognition of the company’s MEF compliant namesake network data and visualization solution.
The MEF Awards is the largest global awards program focused on high-performance carrier Ethernet services and emerging Third Network services powered by LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), NFV, SDN, and CE 2.0 networking technologies.
“CENX provides extreme value to service providers with real-time, actionable data for a wide array of technologies,” said Michael Howard, Senior Research Director, Carrier Networks at IHS Technology.
“Navigating complex systems like, NFV, SDN, OSS, BSS, SON, 5G and others can be an arduous task. The CENX software facilitates simplified network operations by integrating all network data into an easy-to-navigate dashboard which ultimately allows operators to pinpoint and address faults, optimize capacity and identify areas of opportunity. CENX is a viable solution for those looking to launch new margin-rich NFV services while materially lowering operational costs.”
