It’s time for change
Communication service providers are implementing ambitious network transformation projects as they move from vendor-specific, vertically integrated hardware to disaggregated, open networks using software-empowered, standardized hardware. The evolution of management systems needs to keep up. This is why we’ve combined our network operations expertise with our excellence in SDN and NFV to create a next-generation network control solution that embraces central management, open domain control and distributed network operation systems. With its open northbound control interfaces, it provides easy integration into end-to-end orchestrators or multi-domain controllers.

Transforming network management
With storage space and server capacity becoming dynamically allocated multi-cloud architectures, the network needs to interconnect server and storage resources with business applications in a fully automated way. Automation, even of complex operational processes, becomes a key requirement for service providers looking to benefit from the growth of cloud-centric services. A combination of legacy management systems and open interfaces for automated control is now essential for the seamless replacement of manual processes by intelligent algorithms. Our Ensemble Controller is a new breed of network management and control solution for the digital transformation of network operations.
Simplifying multi-technology networking
Our Ensemble Controller features intuitive graphical user interfaces that provide service provisioning and management across your entire network with open programmatic control. This scalable, reliable single control instance manages connectivity, security and synchronization over our packet and optical networks. Whether commissioning, delivering, servicing or troubleshooting, our Ensemble Controller meets your service and control needs at every stage of your digital transformation.
