Telefonica certifies NETSCOUT

NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC., (NASDAQ: NTCT), a provider of service assurance, security, and business analytics, has announced that Telefonica has certified its virtualized solutions vSCOUTâ„¢ and vSTREAMâ„¢ for deployment with its UNICA Lab architecture that supports future networks based on network function virtualization and software-defined networking (NFV/SDN) technologies, the company said.

NETSCOUT successfully completed a set of defined tests that demonstrated pervasive visibility across physical, virtual and cloud networks as well as interoperability with other virtual network functions (VNFs) on the UNICA platform.

vSCOUT and vSTREAM offer pervasive visibility with software-based instrumentation of traffic flows and application workloads in data center and hybrid cloud environments. As the foundation for end-to-end service assurance, including application-and network- assurance, these tools give Telefonica unprecedented visibility and control of hybrid cloud environments.

NETSCOUT supports VMware and OpenStack + KVM private cloud, as well as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure public cloud environments, providing visibility to critical network data that is lost when key network functions and services are virtualized. Administrators can use the full suite of OpenStack and VMware administrative tools to orchestrate the NETSCOUT virtual probes and the virtualized network functions and application services monitored by them.

Telefónica is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world by market capitalization and number of customers with a comprehensive offering and quality of connectivity that is delivered over world class fixed, mobile and broadband networks. As a growing company it prides itself on providing a differential experience based both on its corporate values and a public position that defends customer interests.
