Route Optimization and Assurance is used by the world`s leading network operators, enterprises and government entities to assure the delivery of critical services
The Blue Planet Route Optimization and Assurance (ROA) products fills a key management gap in IP/MPLS networks. While SNMP, log, NetFlow, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and other tools are ubiquitous, only the ROA products provide real-time visibility into how routing behavior affects service delivery. ROA captures real-time telemetry from network devices as well as from domain controllers and service orchestrators such as Blue Planet Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO).By providing visibility into the IP/MPLS network control plane, users can see exactly how specific traffic traverses the Layer 3 network and precisely where performance is abnormal. Sub-optimal conditions missed by traditional tools can quickly be identified to correct possible service delivery issues and use network resources more efficiently.Engineered for network automation, ROA provides powerful analytics and orchestration capabilities and integration with Blue Planet Multi Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO) to accelerate the transition to a self-configuring, self-healing, self-optimizing Adaptive Network.Blue Planet ROA technology has been field-proven for more than a decade. The people responsible for managing the largest, most complex networks in the world depend on the ROA products to ensure critical services are delivered optimally and reliably. When their NMS and OSS dashboards are green but customers are complaining of poor service quality, Blue Planet ROA tells them why.
Blue Planet Route Optimization and Assurance comprises five products:
Route Explorer® collects and analyzes all IGP and BGP routing events to provide real-time visibility into how routing behavior affects service delivery. Download the Route Explorer data sheet for more details.
Traffic Explorer® analyzes flow records (e.g. NetFlow) network-wide and in real time to enable faster diagnosis of problems. Download the Traffic Explorer data sheet for more details.
Performance Explorer collects SNMP-based performance data from network devices to enable sophisticated root cause analysis by correlating changes in performance to path changes caused by routing events. Download the Performance Explorer data sheet for more details.
Explorer Path Provisioning & Explorer Traffic Engineering automate the calculation and configuration of traffic engineered tunnels and automates the provisioning of new service paths.
Understand how network routing paths affect SLAs
Resolve transient and intermittent IP/MPLS network performance problems much faster
Avoid unintended service impacts from network changes
Make more informed infrastructure investments
Accelerate the design and provisioning of new, differentiated services
Simplify the journey to closed-loop automation using a single analytics and orchestration platform
It`s a key component of the Blue Planet Route Optimization and Assurance (ROA) product family. Like the Traffic Engineering application,it leverages ROA?s vendor-agnostic IP/MPLS telemetry and analytics to give network operators powerful automated service provisioning capabilities.
