Monolith Software Stresses the Importance of Future-Proofing in the Service Assurance Space

Heavy Reading White Paper and Upcoming Light Reading Webinar Provide Compelling Information on the Importance of Service Assurance in a Virtual World

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2014) - Research from Heavy Reading shows that operators are keenly aware that legacy service assurance systems currently in place will no longer work in a virtualized world that will be unleashed by Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

"There is no doubt in the minds of the service providers that quality of experience will be the critical factor in making SDN and NVF initiatives successful," said Ari Banerjee, Senior Analyst at Heavy Reading. "Operators are aware that their legacy service assurance systems will no longer work in the virtualized network world that will be unleashed by SDN and NFV and must therefore turn to a unified service assurance platform that will enable them to handle the scale and unpredictability of virtualized network workloads, dynamic service delivery based on service chaining, multi-domains of a hybrid cloud models and the virtual components of an SDN network."

Monolith Software provides a unified service assurance platform, AssureNow™ 4.0, which allows service providers to handle the scale and unpredictability of virtualized network workloads through the unification of fault, performance, topology, and service-level management in a single platform.

Heavy Reading Senior Analyst Ari Banerjee reviewed the effects that a virtualized world could have on service assurance in his recent white paper, "The Role of Service Assurance in a Virtualized World." This paper discusses the effects that blended services in a virtualized world and higher customer demands related to seamless service will have on the telecommunications industry, including the capabilities that a unified service assurance solution has to fix these issues. 

A Light Reading webinar titled "Decoding the Importance of Service Assurance in a Virtualized World" on the same topic will be held on April 30 at 11 AM EDT / 3 PM GMT. This webinar will explore the appeal of NFV and why operators are increasingly moving towards virtualized network services. The keys to success behind one of the biggest trends in telecom today will be discussed, including:

  • Paradigm shifts in operators' IT strategies
  • Dependence of virtualized strategy success on breaking down silos and bridging service gaps
  • Service assurance's critical role in the virtualized service world
  • Functional attributes of a future-proof service assurance solution
  • How Monolith Software addresses key requirements for SDN/NFV

"In order to ensure that your organization is future proof, you need to think about service assurance for network virtualization," said Shawn Ennis, Founder and CTO of Monolith Software. "Key aligning features of our AssureNow™ platform like service propagation, real-time topology awareness, and cross-domain correlation and visualization allow service providers to address SDN and NFV while simultaneously supporting Class 5 Telco switches and MPLS Backbones. Download the Heavy Reading white paper, and join our upcoming webinar for information on future-proofing your organization."
