Packet Design is revolutionizing the way network operators plan, deploy and assure services to help them accelerate time to revenue, decrease churn, and contain costs. Modern IP/MPLS networks call for next-gen analytics and orchestration software but most management tools fall short. With real-time telemetry for millisecond by millisecond visibility into service paths, historical and predictive analytics, and automated service provisioning, the Explorer product suite is future-ready management software that has been proven in hundreds of the world’s largest, most complex networks.
The Packet Design SDN Management and Orchestration (MANO) Platform, built on the Explorer technology, is the first open and vendor-agnostic set of integrated capabilities to provide visibility and control of physical and virtual resources in the core network, and the overlay services that run over it. Its open RESTful APIs give early adopters easy access to the functions needed to develop their own custom SDN orchestration applications, enrich self-service portals, and integrate with OSS and BSS tools. By supporting both existing and SDN-enabled network infrastructure, Packet Design is helping operators deploy advanced services at their own pace and without forklift upgrades.
The Packet Design SDN Traffic Engineering (SDN-TE) application is an example of the intelligent orchestration capabilities that can be achieved with Packet Design’s SDN MANO Platform. The SDN-TE application leverages the Platform’s rich network telemetry and analytics to automate the difficult and time-consuming task of balancing network loads. It does this by creating tunnels to shift loads from heavily-congested links to lightly-used links. This results in better overall use of network resources and smoother service delivery. The SDN-TE application taps into several of the Platform’s services via the open APIs, including real-time and historical routing, traffic and RSVP-TE telemetry, predictive modeling and optimization, policy setting, and orchestration via open source SDN controllers
