Automatic Private Line Provisioning
NCE (Transport Domain) manages existing and SDN network resources to implement automatic service control on optical networks. It provides customized service templates, comprehensive routing policies, cross-layer service provisioning, BOD, bandwidth calendaring, and a wide variety of other indispensable functions.
Some customers invest heavily on ensuring the private lines they rent offer the lowest possible latency. However, carriers' sales personnel cannot quickly determine which private lines meet latency requirements and must repeatedly confirm latency information with the network construction and design departments. Carriers' O&M personnel lack effective methods to monitor and assure the latency. In addition, customers lack the means to realize the specific latencies of private lines and the impact on their business. NCE (Transport Domain) provides E2E capabilities for visualization, selection, and monitoring of service latency. Sales personnel can quickly obtain the latency and bandwidth information between sites or source and sink nodes based on the latency map and estimation capability. In addition, O&M personnel can use the latency-based route computation capability to provision the private lines committed to customers and monitor private line latencies and threshold-crossing alarms in real time.
Optical Network Survivability Analysis
Optical network survivability analysis can simulate a node, link, and shared risk link group (SRLG) fault on a TSDN network and provide multiple trigger modes to check whether the remaining resources meet service protection requirements and identify any services that will be interrupted or downgraded. This helps users determine network resource bottlenecks, identify potential risks, and implement O&M measures to ensure service reliability and avoid SLA violations.
Optical Line Health Forecast
NCE (Transport Domain) leverages AI to forecast the health status of optical lines. It accurately identifies potentially sub-healthy optical lines, effectively forecasts the potential degradation of optical lines, and forecasts faults that may occur over the next month with 90% accuracy. This enables carriers to easily identify fiber degradation during the early stages of WDM network O&M and rectify potential faults before they occur.
