IP VPNs are the mainstay of next-generation-network business services worldwide. Communications Service Providers’ (CSPs) customers demand performance guarantees, proof-points, multiple classes of service, seamless scalability and wide service coverage. So, how can CSP's not only deliver on these expectations with proper service level management, but also provide a differentiated service and drive a positive customer experience?

The answer: by aligning the CSP's network operations with engineering and planning to deliver the necessary performance to the end customer, and then demonstrating the IP VPN's quality with real-time performance reporting. The included multi-tenant, Web-based portal demonstrates SLA compliance and forecasting of service usage and performance degradation. In addition, it empowers the end customer with self-service dashboards, maps, filters and user-configurable thresholds using an intuitive Web 2.0-based GUI.

InfoVista's ability to link the three dimensions of service performance - the resources, end-to-end performance metrics such as latency, jitter and packet loss, and class-based service utilization - gives the CSP the ability to define, manage and deliver a service-based view of its multi-vendor, multi-CoS IP VPN to the end customer. The underlying service modeling capability ensures that what the customer sees maps directly to the service they buy. Built to handle the capacity that CSPs require with billions of transactions processed each day, the IP VPN service level management solution provides both the technical and commercial scalability to help the CSP best align investment with return.

In addition the CSP can choose to extend its IP VPN reporting with the added value of application performance management through our Application Visibility Services.

    With a SSO-based, multi-tenant customer portal, the CSP can rapidly deploy its service’s proof point to their enterprise customers or gracefully integrate the reporting into an existing portal solution.
