Leveraging Analytics for Next Generation Service Assurance

As we enter into the era of software-defined everything, where mobile and fixed infrastructures undergo rapid and dynamic change, is time to invest in and modernize existing service assurance Analytics platforms. Technologies such as Big Data and Analytics are becoming essential to be able to ensure end-2-end new technology services based on SDN and NFV are delivered within SLAs to end users. The next generation service assurance should be able to understand and co-relate the events from the entire stack cutting across physical and virtual resources.
