InfoVista has announced the launch of its cloud-based turnkey managed service assurance platform, VistaGO, which promises Tier-2 or Tier-3 operators agility for end-to-end SLA reporting and affordable Tier-1-grade mobile backhaul assurance.
Both CSPs and MNOs face constant pressure to reduce TCO while requiring increased agility. Whether Tier-2 or Tier-3 sized providers, they demand the same power, scale and flexibility in their service assurance platform as Tier-1 providers, but don’t always have the resources needed to achieve this. VistaGO provides a low-cost, agile solution to their service assurance needs, InfoVista says.
VistaGO for business services delivers end-to-end performance visibility for SLA reporting of IP-VPN or Carrier Ethernet, enabling CSPs to differentiate their services, drive customer acquisition and enable revenue uplift with a predictable, monthly cost.
With VistaGO for mobile backhaul, MNOs gain end-to-end visibility of their backhaul network freeing up engineering resources from reactive troubleshooting and improving capacity investments. Operators can assure a higher QoS for mobile subscribers on their IP, Ethernet or Microwave backhaul networks, while accelerating their service ROI, says Cyril Doussau, senior director of service assurance products and markets at InfoVista.
“CSPs are constantly under pressure to reduce costs and deliver better quality to their end customers, and VistaGO reflects our commitment to helping them succeed while keeping total cost of ownership low,” said Doussau. “We’ve built VistaGO to enable customers with real-time and historical network intelligence in an agile, cloud-based managed service platform. CSPs and MNOs of any size can access Tier-1-class service quality.”
“With the constantly escalating cost pressures, CSPs are actively evaluating new approaches to reduce TCO of operational systems and increase operational flexibility and efficiency,” said Anil Rao, senior analyst, Analysys Mason. “With a low upfront investment and rapid deployment timescale, the VistaGO cloud-based managed service offering enables CSPs to achieve these operational objectives while freeing up valuable engineering resources to focus on higher value business activities.”
