Customer demand in the Carrier Ethernet market has been growing at a breakneck pace. But connecting carrier networks directly tend to be time-consuming involving technical and business challenges. Carrier Ethernet exchanges are seen as key providers that make it far easier for networks to interconnect across geographies. And increasingly, Ethernet exchange offerings are going beyond just interconnecting network service providers, to interconnecting cloud service provider and the network service provider and interconnecting data-centers.
With this evolution, Ethernet exchange providers have a pressing need to offer reliable and stable support to diverse service providers with a global footprint. Exchange providers are expected to accelerate revenue opportunities for service providers in a cost effective manner.
Emergence of innovations and newer standards create ample avenues to improve the Quality of Service (QoS) delivered by service providers. Thus, exchange providers have to compulsorily support any SLA committed by the peering service providers to their customers.
This introduces multiple challenges including but not limited to preservation of data/protocol transparency, frame handling, fault management and lack of multi-service awareness. While most of these problems are not encountered during service activation, it is more prone to occur in real-time after service turn up. The ad-hoc trouble shooting activities in many cases are inefficient to repair or reverse the damage caused to the service providers.
Veryx provides a unique range of specialized products, to equip Ethernet exchange providers in their pursuit of supporting a wide range of service offerings. We also offer complementing professional services to ensure that Exchange Providers are prepared to deliver with consistency, the SLA promised by the service providers.
Veryx SAMTEST can be used by Ethernet exchange providers in designing interconnects, turn-up testing, troubleshooting and monitoring of interconnects between multiple peering partners and specifically ensuring SLA compliance at the hand-off points. It would comprehensively test the circuits being peered for SLA compliance under varying conditions to pro-actively ensure no issues are leaked to the customer – as troubleshooting post turn-up in peering situations could be time consuming and costly. Veryx SAMTEST would also significantly expedite the troubleshooting by the peer exchange providers.
Veryx SAMTEST’s customer portal can provide web-based access to the historical performance information required by the peering partners and also facilitates scheduled report generation. This capability, could be a competitive edge to the peer exchange providers as it improves the performance visibility that they offer to the peering partners.
