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.”

Microservices Articles
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
As Enterprise business moves from Monoliths to Microservices, adoption and successful implementations of Microservices become more evident. The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases. Documenting hurdles and problems for the use of Microservices will help consultants, architects and specialists to avoid repeating the same mistakes and learn how and when to use (or not use) Microservices at the enterprise level. The circumstance w...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...
CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Traditional IT, great for stable systems of record, is struggling to cope with newer, agile systems of engagement requirements coming straight from the business. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, William Morrish, General Manager of Product Sales at Interoute, will outline ways of exploiting new architectures to enable both systems and building them to support your existing platforms, with an eye for the future. Technologies such as Docker and the hyper-convergence of computing, networking and...
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
Gone are the days when application development was the daunting task of the highly skilled developers backed with strong IT skills, low code application development has democratized app development and empowered a new generation of citizen developers. There was a time when app development was in the domain of people with complex coding and technical skills. We called these people by various names like programmers, coders, techies, and they usually worked in a world oblivious of the everyday pri...
