Centina Systems Unveils the Next Standard of Service Assurance with NetOmnia™ 5.0

Continuing its mission to provide the next generation of service assurance for the rapidly evolving communications industry, Centina Systems, a leading provider of service assurance and service quality management solutions for communications service providers (CSPs) worldwide, has released NetOmnia™ 5.0, the new standard for communications service assurance.

With pre-integrated support for 550+ different device types from 100+ vendors, enhanced workflow management, advanced reporting and dashboards, and flexible SLA management, the NetOmnia™ 5.0 solution offers actionable insight into today’s unprecedented scale of network and performance information, while meeting operational expenditure savings and time-to-market requirements.

“First and foremost, the most stunning change we see in carrier requirements for service assurance and network and performance management is a never-before-seen need for scalability,” said Centina Systems CEO Anand Gonuguntla. “It’s an era of Big Data—operators are facing a disruptive explosion of 5 to 10 times the number of supported devices than they once had, escalating volumes of data and video traffic, and ever more complex network infrastructure which includes Ethernet and LTE as top-of-mind investments.”

The rise of heterogeneous networks (HetNets) is changing the game for communications service providers (CSPs), he added. “Going forward into 2013 and beyond, we will see big infrastructure extensions,” said Gonuguntla. “Mobile operators globally are launching LTE but also leveraging small cells, and cable operators are embracing Wi-Fi on a widespread basis to extend coverage even as they continue DOCSIS 3.0 builds. Meanwhile, telcos have more and more fiber in the ground, while still maintaining plenty of copper. The result for carriers of all sizes, from Tier 1 to mid-size operators, is a growing, disjointed mountain of service-related information in need of visibility.”

Centina Systems' NetOmnia™ 5.0 offers a number of key benefits to service providers. These include but are not limited to:

  • Ever Expanding Device Support: NetOmnia™ now includes pre-integrated support for 550+ different device types from 100+ carrier infrastructure vendors
  • Workflow Automation further empowers the end-user: NetOmnia™ Workflow Automation allows users to easily automate and interconnect systems through reusable workflow actions without programming, , and additional actions for external database and Web Service Query.
  • Advanced & Scheduled Reports: Customers can not only generate reports within NetOmnia, but can also access data from external systems, enabling powerful and consolidated views across the network and OSS infrastructure.
  • Enhanced SLA Management, Conformance and Reporting to meet the needs of next-generation services and increasing competition
  • Scheduled Maintenance module empowers users to schedule maintenance on demand either with NetOmnia’s internal maintenance schedule or integrated with external maintenance databases.
  • Adaptive Correlation Module empowers NetOmnia to learn the behavior of any network to automatically correlate and suppress alarms to dramatically improve troubleshooting and network performance.
  • Javascript Rules Engine allows users to create, test and enable advanced event processing rules in real-time with no system downtime

“With this release, our mandate was to meet that main scalability challenge, and then take the platform further, to support the prismatic array of business and consumer expectations for the reliability of their communications,” said Gonuguntla. “The result is that NetOmnia™ 5.0 is a carefully tailored solution for the next generation of communications, across operators of all sizes, for 2013 and beyond.”

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder.

However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...

How can you compare one technology or tool to its competitors? Usually, there is no objective comparison available. So how do you know which is better? Eclipse or IntelliJ IDEA? Java EE or Spring? C# or Java? All you can usually find is a holy war and biased comparisons on vendor sites. But luckily, sometimes, you can find a fair comparison. How does this come to be? By having it co-authored by the stakeholders. The binary repository comparison matrix is one of those rare resources. It is edite...
There’s a lot of discussion around managing outages in production via the likes of DevOps principles and the corresponding software development lifecycles that does enable higher quality output from development, however, one cannot lay all blame for “bugs” and failures at the feet of those responsible for coding and development.

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore's Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at Big Data Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, disc...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated.

But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers ...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task.
