Multi-layer Operations

Clear insight simplifies operations

Networks generate vast amounts of detailed telemetry data, but it is difficult to parse out key insights and take the best course of action. Moreover, with IP and optical networks converging, manual correlation between multiple systems is often required to get a full understanding of a network’s state and trends. That’s where Multi-layer Operations apps can help. These advanced analytics provide intuitive visualization of correlated data across multiple technology layers and hone in on significant findings to simplify and speed up cross-layer operational workflows and mitigate network issues.

Multi-layer Operations benefits

Single pane of glass

Gain a complete view of your network services and the underlying infrastructure each service is traversing and navigate easily between layers, including multi-vendor optical, Ethernet, and IP infrastructure. No more manual data correlation. Instead, you can rapidly complete cross-layer operational workflows and increase network reliability by ensuring diversity of network routes across multiple layers.

Cross-layer problem resolution

Speed up troubleshooting of network issues by isolating and addressing the root alarm, across layers. Easily find and resolve configuration errors and missing data with automated audits. Avoid timing disruptions. Ensure reliable data communications connectivity. Keep your network running smoothly.

Network capacity management

Optimize usage of network assets by identifying areas of capacity exhaustion or underused resources—multi-layer—to drive informed capacity planning decisions. Leverage the flexibility and scale of the cloud to collect and analyze as much data as you need, when you need it. View key performance metrics to uncover trends and get ahead of performance issues.
