Learn about the basic features and use cases of
DX NetOps Virtual Network Assurance.
DX NetOps Virtual Network Assuranceenables existing infrastructure management solutions to monitor software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).
DX NetOps Virtual Network Assurancereduces the challenge and risk of SDN/NFV deployments by providing extended visibility and sustained reliability for self-service, automated networks.
DX NetOps Virtual Network Assuranceprovides the following functionality as part of the Performance Monitoring solution,
DX NetOps Performance Management:
- SDN/NFV Stack CorrelationShows and monitors all the physical and virtual layers of the stack that supports virtual network functions (VNFs).
- Service Chain VisibilityProvides insight into the building blocks that form service chains.
- Multi-vendor Protocol and Platform CoverageSupports for SDN controllers, orchestrators, OpenStack, and vendor agents including on-demand certification.
- Integrated MetricsEnables SDN/NFV monitoring and analytics with traditional SNMP monitoring and analytics.
DX NetOps Virtual Network Assurancecollects data from SDN/NFV controllers and orchestrators and provides that data to subscribers. Each orchestrator or controller requires a plug-in to configure the connection.
DX NetOps Virtual Network Assurancenormalizes the collected data and sends updates to subscribers that consume the data.
