VIAVI Solutions has unveiled what it claims is the first intelligence platform that automatically delivers real-time test and measurement data from network instruments directly to software-based planning, provisioning, assurance and optimisation applications. VIAVI’s new Nitro platform helps service providers and enterprises reduce costs and complexity while optimizing performance throughout the entire network lifecycle.
Working seamlessly across mobile, fibre, cable, cloud and enterprise networks, this platform maximises the value of current investments in VIAVI instruments and software solutions, presently deployed by over 200 network operators globally.
“Tomorrow’s networks promise to deliver a multi-billion dollar market over the upcoming decade, but before this promise can be realized, service providers need to resolve a number of significant issues that cannot be addressed at scale today,” said Sue Rudd, Director Service Provider Analysis at Strategy Analytics. “Next-generation technologies — IoT services, fixed mobile convergence, hybrid cloud, network slicing, 4K video and 5G — all create specific challenges that require new approaches to network management, including greater automation, virtualisation and real-time analytics.”
“Nitro leverages intelligence gathered throughout the entire network and across the service lifecycle to overcome the increasingly complex challenges presented by evolving physical, virtualised, and hybrid networks,” said Paul McNab, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, VIAVI Solutions. “With a common platform that introduces greater automation, real-time analytics and virtualisation, Nitro enables service providers and enterprises to reduce complexity and manual intervention while maximising the value they gain from the broad line of scalable VIAVI test and measurement instruments and software, including their current VIAVI installed base.”
