ADVA, Amartus automate service lifecycle management

ADVA (FSE: ADV) has announced a joint demo with Amartus that reveals how service providers can reduce service activation and modification times from weeks to minutes, the company said.

Showcasing the value of MEF´s Presto network resources provisioning (NRP) interface, the proof of concept (PoC) uses programmable interfaces for the automation of lifecycle service orchestration (LSO).

The demo “Making end-to-end service lifecycle management real with MEF´s LSO Presto API” highlights how dynamic automated network services are fundamental to MEF 3.0´s transformation vision. Using the ADVA Pro-Vision® solution, it proves how open and standardized APIs can realize the promise of zero integration for various multi-vendor components, significantly reducing CAPEX and OPEX.

The joint PoC involves edge compute nodes controlled by ADVA´s Pro-Vision® domain management solution and features a Presto NRP northbound API jointly developed by Amartus and ADVA interfacing with a service orchestration platform. It represents a major step towards making agile, assured and orchestrated connectivity services available across multiple vendor and technology domains.
