Fujitsu to Resell Centina Systems’ NetOmnia™ to Offer Carrier Ethernet SLA Management

Combination of Fujitsu’s World-Class Technology and Services Coupled with Centina’s Innovation in Ethernet Service Assurance Delivers Unprecedented Competitive Advantage to Customers

NICE, FRANCE – May 14, 2013 – Centina Systems, a leading provider of service assurance and service quality management solutions for communications service providers (CSPs) worldwide, has announced today that Fujitsu Network Communications will resell NetOmnia™ Ethernet Service Assurance for end-to-end visualization and SLA management of Carrier Ethernet services and the NetOmnia™ SLA Manager.

By offering NetOmnia™, Fujitsu can deliver on the entire Ethernet Life Cycle from solution delivery to service quality management and SLA management. With NetOmnia™ Ethernet Assurance and SLA Manager, Fujitsu provides CSPs with a solution supporting ITU-T Y1731 and IEEE 802.1ag industry standards. NetOmnia™ allows CSPs to:

  • Easily define, track and report on contractual SLAs
  • Improve SLA conformance with proactive performance reporting for key Ethernet service quality metrics (SQMs), such as availability, delay, jitter, throughput and packet loss
  • Automatically discover end-to-end Ethernet services
  • Collect and monitor service metrics and configure dynamic thresholds
  • Create and report on customized Key Performance Indicators and Key Quality Indicators (KPIs/KQIs)

“As operators continue to turn to Fujitsu’s communications networking portfolio to support the high-quality, high-bandwidth Ethernet services, ensuring quality of service and customer experience is critical,” said Paul Havala, Vice President of Planning at Fujitsu Network Communications. “NetOmnia™ allows us to deliver a comprehensive Ethernet solution with the ability to assure the service performance across multi-vendor networks.”

Carrier Ethernet’s shared architecture has created new requirements and challenges for assuring service quality in real-time, resulting in the need for Ethernet-specific service performance visualization and service assurance across multi-vendor networks. Centina’s NetOmnia™ Ethernet Assurance solution and SLA Manager feature are specifically tailored to Carrier Ethernet service requirements to help CSPs monitor and assure bandwidth availability and deliver on differentiating SLAs allowing CSPs to improve customer experience and compete more effectively.

“Today’s communications operators are facing immense challenges in providing a differentiating Quality of Service for customers amid an explosion of bandwidth demand due to the rise of cloud services, pervasive video and the uptake in smart devices.” said Anand Gonuguntla, Co-founder and CEO at Centina Systems. “Services must offer reliability and guaranteed SLAs, while improving network performance and optimizing utilization, in order to achieve a better cost per gigabit of data traffic and lower operating costs. The combination of Fujitsu’s market leading networking technology, world-class services & support and NetOmnia’s™ innovation gives CSPs a real competitive advantage in delivering and assuring carrier-class Ethernet services.”
