LONDON --(BUSINESS WIRE)--02.11.2016--
Ontology Systems, provider of service impact analysis and end-to-end dynamic
network and service topology, today announced that it will be collaborating
with Cognizant (www.cognizant.com) and EXFO (www.exfo.com), in the TM Forum's
Lighter Logical Inventories Catalyst project to explore how new approaches to
inventory can be applied to virtualised and hybrid networks to provide better
The Catalyst is championed by global communications service provider Verizon (
www.verizon.com) and will demonstrate how next generation OSS tools can be used
to combine data from many sources to create a real-time comprehensive model of
a service and the elements it depends on. This model can then be combined with
measurement and performance data to provide true end-to-end service assurance
even when services are delivered by complex hybrid infrastructure.
As NFV and SDN make network infrastructure ever more dynamic, legacy approaches
to network inventory are unable to provide the very complete end-to-end
information required to truly assure services, requiring new technologies and
new notions of the role of inventories.
'Legacy network inventories were designed to address the challenges of legacy
networks', said Leo Zancani, Ontology Systems CTO, 'but now networks are
becoming much more dynamic, and CSP's ability to evolve their infrastructure
and services cannot be limited by the time to roll out new inventory
functionality. Assurance functions do still need a reliable, up-to-date view of
what's involved in the delivery of a service though - so a lighter, more agile
approach is essential.'
The Catalyst will show how Ontology Systems' product, Intelligent 360 for
Network Operators, uses graph-data and semantic modelling to provide an agile
way to combine data from sources such as legacy OSS, network discovery,
orchestrators, SDN controllers and virtualisation management to provide an
understanding of how physical and virtual resources depend on each other to
deliver a service.
