IT workload migration from the enterprise data center to remote, cloud data centers, increasing IT mobility, and remote management for the Internet of Things (IoT) all drive the need for assured network services for business-critical communications. Assured network services offer availability and performance guarantees, unlike the best effort services provided by the Internet. Telecom network operators see this assured service demand as an opportunity for revenue growth, both from existing services like Carrier Ethernet and MPLS as well as new, innovative services that incorporate SDN, NFV and M2M technologies. The highly diverse, reliable and scalable connectivity they can provide with thei…

After Cisco’s acquisition of Tail-F, how does NetConf based management move forward?

Sometimes, a major event focuses our attention on a broader issue and forces us to reevaluate the situation. The Cisco acquisition of Tail-F has done just that for the critical topic of network orchestration, where NetConf has shown promise in being one of the enabler technologies, especially in the north-bound API layer of SDN service orchestration. Tail-F has been a torchbearer in the NetConf arena paving the path for the blogosphere to be abuzz with commentary on the importance of network orchestration for service automation and of how the acquisition of a market leader might delay the realization of a cross vendor orchestration platform. Of two things, there is little doubt. First, that network orches…

Service OAM (or Operation, Administration & Maintenance) is simply about detecting service performance degradation and making the networks more reliable. Developments in OAM are arguably the most important networking advancements and that is what makes OAM the backbone of the modern ethernet services being provided today. Wondering why OAM is such a big deal when we already had fault management systems in place? With the advent of carrier grade ethernet, especially with Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0), the networking technologies, environment and most importantly the service types have changed. So have the customer expectations. Due to the intense competition, network operators need to…
