Creanord Redefines 3G and LTE Backhaul SLA with MEF 10.2.1, Launches EchoVault with Red Hat Enterprise Linux
BARCELONA, Spain -- Creanord Ltd., a leading enabler of analytics-driven SLA management assisting Carriers and service providers in exploiting the flexibility of Ethernet to differentiate and save cost today announced the redefinition of 3G and LTE Backhaul SLA by leveraging MEF 10.2.1 based Unavailable Seconds (UAS) as well as the EchoVault solution with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
The Metro Ethernet Forum Technical Specification Performance Attributes Amendment, MEF 10.2.1, defines the basic criteria for determining service availability. The service availability definition now uses frame loss during a sliding window to determine availability or unavailability for each short time interval. This can allow a CSP to define their service level specifications more appropriately, in the best case avoiding unnecessary SLA breach penalties. MEF 10.2.1 sliding window service availability calculations in EchoVault allow flexible SLA management, analytics and real-time and monthly SLA portal reporting all based on MEF 10.2.1.
CSPs increasingly need a flexible yet robust platform to support bringing innovative services to their customers. At the same time the pressure to leverage investments to the maximum never ceases. LTE puts significant delay and phase lock requirements on the networks and proper SLA management is required to ensure consistent performance even with high data rates and oversubscription.
Creanord EchoVault allows advanced SLA management with unique, highly granular per CoS, per circuit and per second reporting, letting you not only provision, but also manage and report Carrier Ethernet services with TDM-level service consistency. Customer loyalty is strengthened by giving visibility into the service through an automated SLA portal with dynamic and interactive web reports.
The solution allows a Communications Service Provider (CSP) to enhance their Ethernet-based backhaul service with a state-of-the-art Carrier Ethernet performance management and SLA solution.
CSPs have been delighted with EchoVaults capabilities supporting Carrier Ethernet SLA differentiation without compromising quality. Now this attractive solution is also available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which allows the CSP to not only lower capex, but to realize operational savings in organizations having standardized on Linux. Further, deployment is in many cases faster with the broad range of supported server hardware readily available.
