Ethernet Service Orchestration software to deliver performance
monitoring and data integrity for 4G network in multi-million dollar
OTTAWA, Feb. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - CENX announced that they have been
selected by a North American tier 1 mobile service provider for a
multi-million dollar project to provide a real-time performance and
fault monitoring solution for a nationwide 4G backhaul network. The
CENX Ethernet Lifecycle Manager will deliver significant operational
cost savings by reducing trouble triage time, establishing an
authoritative measurement of access vendor performance, and improving
The CENX Ethernet Lifecycle Manager will allow this tier 1 mobile
service provider to monitor Ethernet transport services in real time.
Ethernet Lifecycle Manager (ELM) is CENX's flagship Service
Orchestration solution. ELM features a common inventory and monitoring
dashboard that visualizes the state of Ethernet circuits end-to-end
across the entire network, including those services provided by
numerous access vendors. With the CENX solution, the mobile service
provider can now monitor the performance of circuits provided by access
vendors, reduce mean time to repair with intuitive fault
sectionalization, and automate the delivery of authoritative
intelligence to ensure that SLAs are met.
CENX's ELM software is extensible to VoLTE, as it enables correlation at
the CoS level and can be linked to IMS core performance.
A 2013 trial of the CENX solution with this service provider delivered
tangible business value, substantially reducing triage time, and
ensuring more efficient and authoritative SLA process management.
This announcement follows a previous multi-million dollar order from another tier 1 service provider for CENX to accelerate the build-out of 4G mobile backhaul network.
CENX President and CEO
"Today's networks generate millions of data events per minute. Network
operations teams are challenged to sift through this mass of data,
determine the most relevant data and interpret the data that resides in
disparate systems to take timely action to ensure the most positive
customer experience," said Ed Ogonek, CENX President and CEO. "With
CENX, our customer gains an authoritative single-pane view to monitor
Ethernet services end-to-end. They will derive immediate business value
in faster time to market, reduced OPEX and a future proof solution that
can transition to next generation software-defined networks."
