The Service Assurance Opportunity
Don’t wait for the network to break.
Don’t wait for the customer to call.
The biggest impact to Customer Experience is the availability and uptime of their network. Most operators are ‘eyes on glass,’ waiting for something to break, and apply an ‘are you there’ approach to network management.
90% Reduction in Troubleshooting Time
DAA collects all vital health and performance data from the network to automatically detect, predict, and resolve issues. The ability to correlate all realtime and historical performance data with the actual inventory, allows for industry leading service assurance automation within the transport domain. We make the data actionable, so you can stop waiting.
Use Cases & Outcomes
Under a Minute
Less than a minute to determine service path, gather data, and isolate the transport issue, by reducing swivel-chair.
Reduce SLA Payouts
By fixing it, before it breaks, which can mean millions saved.
Save time with the most accurate information for your technicians.
Create a revolutionary positive change in your Customer Experience.

Brief: The Transport Management Dilemma
Performance Monitoring & Management
The ultimate objective of assurance automation is to leverage ‘realtime’ discovered inventory, ‘actionable’ data/analytics, and control automation – all from the ‘live’ network. These critical functions are required for feedback-loop programmability to auto-detect, auto-predict, auto-test/triage, and auto-restore issues on the network. With these three functions (discover, analyze, control) required for control-loop-actionability, most solutions today lack one or two of these. Likewise, gaps exist today where test-automation does not cover the vastness of multi-vendor, multi-generation, and multi-technology as deployed in large operator networks. netFLEX Analytics and Assurance Automation reflects a family of capabilities that addresses all of these.
