Sedona Systems Redefines Planning and Operation of IP/Optical Networks with NetFusion
Sedona Systems™, the global leader in multilayer IP/Optical network
control and optimization, today announced a major release of its
NetFusion™ product. The new release adds network analytics and reporting
capabilities that provide immediate value to service providers seeking a
realistic and phased approach to network automation and SDN deployment.
The company also announced that NetFusion is commercially deployed by
global Tier 1 service providers and will be showcased this week in a
live demonstration at OFC Booth #3055.
NetFusion is an independent, software-only solution that connects to
network equipment and controllers from all major vendors. It
automatically discovers multivendor topology, traffic, and services for
both Optical and IP/MPLS layers, and the cross-layer connections between
them. This delivers unprecedented visibility, and allows service
providers to reap the benefits of network convergence and software
agility over their existing infrastructures.
Service providers use NetFusion to quickly identify congestion, risks,
and sub-optimal paths across their IP/Optical networks. With improved
visibility and full understanding of dependencies and cross connections,
networks run at higher utilization levels and operators can defer costly
expansions. NetFusion also delivers reliable inventory assurance,
improved resiliency, accelerated provisioning, and more efficient
maintenance and repairs.
Sedona has already demonstrated the product in advanced network
automation applications such as multilayer restoration, optimization,
and bandwidth on demand. Recently NetFusion played a key role in the
OIF's (News - Alert) SDN Transport API Interoperability demonstration, where, as the
master controller, it orchestrated services across multple optical
"Service providers are facing major challenges as they attempt to deal
with both profit-per-bit declines and increasing competition," said
Michael Howard, Senior Research Director and advisor at IHS (News - Alert) Markit.
"Sedona has taken a very pragmatic approach to the problem by focusing
on improving the efficiency and agility of existing IP-Optical networks
- I think this should be interesting to all service providers,
particularly those with large multivendor networks."
"The benefits of IP/Optical convergence are universally recognized but
achieving them was considered too hard - until NetFusion," said Yossi
Wellingstein, CEO of Sedona Systems. "Our software does all the hard
work of discovering and visualizing network topology and traffic across
the IP and Optical layers in multivendor networks. Service providers are
given a complete view of the network that is easy to understand and
control. It is the foundation of a new approach to network management
and automation, based on actual network data rather than assumptions and
NetFusion is available for deployment today. For more information, visit http://sedonasys.com/.
Sedona Systems has created NetFusion, the first multilayer application
platform, focusing on discovery, optimization, and control of the
Optical and IP/MPLS layers (L0-L3) in multivendor service provider
networks. Enabling both optically-aware IP routing and IP-informed
optical switching, our applications boost effective WAN capacity,
increase agility, availability and flexibility, and save up to 50% of
core network costs.
NetFusion connects to all major vendors' equipment through SDN
controllers or management systems, and optimizes key tasks through
dynamic, automatic management of both optical and IP resources.
