Reach Optimized Capacity.
Traffic Management using Fast Re-Route Mechanism.
Traffic engineered networks re-route signals based on automatic calculation that depends on criticality and bandwidth required for data transfer through the network path. During node or link failure, or high burst of traffic, Symphony MPLS, using the FRR mechanism, allows the network to optimize and easily handle traffic. Also, Symphony simplifies the configuration management of TE LSP tunnels for effective routing.
Auto-discover network components like Provider Edge (PE), Provider(P), Explicit Path and LSP Hops. Rediscovery is triggered on any configuration change to ensure MMMS is always in sync.
Unified visualiztion of traffic patterns topologically - LSP, LSP Hops and interrelation with PE & P. Scalable framework to manage millions of device.
Provision & Configure
Point-and-click provisioning of LSP , Explicit Path, and Static Routes. Audit log all config changes & newly activated MPLS services.
Set network baselines and test for vulnerabilities with ease. Easily track traffic flow record and bandwidth utilization over a given period of time.
Status of PE, P, interfaces, LabelSwitchedPath, ExplictPath, and LSP Hops. Alarms generated when link connectivity is fragmented. Status of Tunnel up, Tunnel Down, Tunnel Rerouted, and Tunnel Reoptimized Traps.
"Tunnel" into Your Virtual Private Networks.
VPN Management for Enhanced Security & Connectivity.
Symphony MPLS Management enables auto-discovery of Layer3 and PseudoWire entities and creation and provisioning of L3VPN services. Ensure secure transfer of voice, data and video and manage services and applications across your IP/MPLS VPN.
- Auto-discover physical resources viz Virtual Route Forwarder (VRF), Route Target (RT), Route Distinguisher (RD) and VRF interface.
- End-to-end topology view of service layers such as VPN, pseudowire, QoS policy; Map of Mesh and Hub-and-Spoke VPN.
- Hop connectivity discovery generates Layer 2 connectivity between routers in network.
- Fault management and notification (CE-PE connectivity, BGP sessions) for reduced downtime of VPN
- Scale networks and sync resources and their performance in real-time.
Infrastructures Change. So Does Your Network Priorities.
QoS Management for Optimum Efficiency.
Primary goal of QoS is to enable service providers to prioritize network services over underlying technologies such as Frame Relay, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), Ethernet, IP/MPLS routed networks etc. Voice, video and data packets through a network path, requires different conditions of dedicated bandwidth, jitter, latency, and packet loss that on type of data being transferred.
Symphony MPLS supports DiffServ on the PE to suppress traffic flow and discovers managed objects related to DiffServ. Also discovers, Cisco IP SLA traffic flow objects like ICMP Echo, Path Echo, UDP Echo, Jitter etc.
Symphony MPLS supports template based configuration of ICMP Echo, UDP Echo and Jitter. Configuration changes are easily tracked and audit logging for all config changes can be made.
Average jitter, Packel loss ration, Average RTT for Jitter and Threshold violation and connectivity for ICMP & UDP Echo. In DifferServ, counters store and provide octet/transferred counter information and vise versa (droppers).
Interoperability across Packet-switched Networks.
Effective Pseudowire Management.
Pseudo Wire Edge to Edge Emulation (PWE3) defines point-to-point tunnels and emulates services across a packet-switched network such as Ethernet, MPLS & IP. Symphony MPLS discovers PseudoWire services and categorized in the Inventory such as VPLS PseudoWire, VLL, VLL Local, PWEndPoint. It also provides information on PseudoWire services between LSPs. Tunnel link traps are listened for and propagated to the service. PseudoWire Performance is monitored by number of bytes & packets received and forwarded. Measure end-to-end MTU, verify edge devices can see each other, stay aware of end-to-end state signaling through Symphony.
