Communications Service Providers and

The Virtualization Revolution

Today’s virtualization revolution pressures Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to be more agile than ever before.  Customers want agile, on-demand services they can click-to-order and that can be delivered instantaneously.  CSPs leveraging SDN and NFV for their next-generation networks need a new strategy for service assurance, service activation testing and production of “birth certificates”.  These next-generation test solutions need to be cost-effective, agile and be instantiated on-demand, much like the virtualized services they are assuring.

Assure Services with

Service Activation Testing

Customers are increasingly demanding “birth certificates” for new services to verify it meets the performance criteria before activation.  CSPs need a consistent method of testing Ethernet and IP services to ensure that it respects the SLA.  Siama Systems’ solutions allow CSPs to verify their services by enabling an RFC 2544 test without the need to dispatch a technician to the customer premise.  The GENEM-X application performs these tests with the click of a mouse and provides formal test report documents in PDF format that can be shared with customers.  You can use the same GENEM app to perform on-demand testing to troubleshoot customer issues.

Siama Systems Provides

Consistent Test Methodologies

As VNFs replace traditional hardware-based solutions, customers want the flexibility of virtualized solutions but with the performance of traditional hardware-based products.  CSPs test portfolio must be able to test applications regardless of the platform they are running on.  Siama Systems’ products provide a consistent interface across both hardware-based and virtualized test solutions to simplify deployment.

In-line Service Monitoring & Troubleshooting

In-service monitoring

The PROVA appliance can be connected to a switch or router’s mirror/SPAN port, test port, or in-line with the service path.  Use the power of GENEM to non-intrusively monitor individual flows, capture flows for analysis and generate synthetic traffic on VLANs, pseudo-wires, and individual TCP/UDP sessions to test and troubleshoot issues. 

Service Activation Testing

SAT

Verify and guarantee performance before you turn circuits over to subscribers.  Service Activation Testing (SAT) allows you to verify connectivity and the correct provisioning of your circuits, including critical latency, jitter and loss performance requirements to ensure your customer will get the service quality they require.

Continuous Performance Management

Continuos PM

Monitor virtual circuits and pseudo-wires in real-time with a robust set of continuous performance management features.  GENEM allows you to gather latency, jitter and loss metrics on a per-service basis so you can compile performance data into monthly reports. 

Protected ENNI Service Testing

Protected ENNI Service Testing

Perform Service Activation Testing or other troubleshooting tests across a link-protected ENNI using the GENEM application.  Multiple PROVA test ports can be aggregated to perform tests over a link-protected interface.  Test the performance of active/standby links by forcing switchovers and precisely measuring the switchover time and tracking packet loss during the switchover event.

Synthetic Traffic Generation

Synthetic traffic gen

Use GENEM’s powerful synthetic traffic generation tools to emulate real-world traffic by combining multiple application streams into multiplexed flows.  Create any type of packet and specify header values using our intuitive packet editor.  Add hardware timestamps and sequence numbers to synthetic traffic to track performance of streams.  Accurate stream rate control allows you to precisely throttle the rate of packet transmission on a test port for each stream independently.

Packet Capture and Playback

Pkt capture and playback

You can capture traffic on any of the test ports with the click of your mouse.  A large 8GB onboard capture buffer can store a copy of received packets up to line rate.  You can export the capture buffer and decode the contents using WireShark.  You can also playback the capture at the rate it was captured or at full line rate.  Upload pre-saved PCAP files to the PROVA and play them back on any test port.
