Tail-f Systems NCS for Carrier Ethernet Presentation

  1. 1. Tail-f Systems Helps Networking Equipment Providers Take the Pain Out of Provisioning Carrier Ethernet Services www.tail-f.com [email_address]
  2. 2. Agenda <ul><li>Tail-f Systems Overview </li></ul><ul><li>ConfD - Making Network Elements Smarter </li></ul><ul><li>Industry Challenge </li></ul><ul><li>NCS - A New Approach </li></ul><ul><li>Extending NCS for Carrier Ethernet </li></ul><ul><li>Market Opportunity </li></ul><ul><li>Summary </li></ul>
  3. 3. Tail-f Systems Overview Business • Growing rapidly • Profitable • Global distribution • Funded by leading European VC Technical • Multiple technical innovations • Leading contributor to standards • Senior development team Market • Leading provider of carrier-grade, on-device management • Powering global production networks • 6/10 largest NEPs are our customers
  4. 4. ConfD Making Network Elements Smarter <ul><li>Data Model Driven </li></ul><ul><li>• Rapid development </li></ul><ul><li>• Avoid costs of stovepipe architecture </li></ul><ul><li>• Auto-render management interfaces </li></ul><ul><li>On-Device Transactions </li></ul><ul><li>• Transaction-safe </li></ul><ul><li>• Reduce configuration errors and network downtime </li></ul><ul><li>• Not peek-and-poke </li></ul><ul><li>Built for Scale </li></ul><ul><li>• Multi-box management </li></ul><ul><li>• High availability </li></ul><ul><li>• Role-based access control </li></ul><ul><li>• Symmetric multicore processing </li></ul>
  5. 5. Industry Challenge NEPs are required to provide more complete operations solution Customers expect fast Turn-up and spotless Frequency of change in networks increasing Complexity of service provisioning exploding Voice Services Video Services Mobile Backhaul Access Services OPERATORS must replace manual, error-prone, time consuming steps in service provisioning
  6. 6. Current Approaches Ineffective <ul><li>Manual </li></ul><ul><li>• Configure one device at a time </li></ul><ul><li>• Requires network experts </li></ul><ul><li>• Expensive </li></ul><ul><li>• Error-prone and not scalable </li></ul><ul><li>Vendor Specific EMS </li></ul><ul><li>• Minimal automation functionality </li></ul><ul><li>• CLI scripting or SNMP limitations </li></ul><ul><li>• Error-prone </li></ul><ul><li>• Not service-aware </li></ul><ul><li>Multi-vendor Tools </li></ul><ul><li>• Multiple adapter layers </li></ul><ul><li>• CLI scripting or SNMP limitations </li></ul><ul><li>• Complex and hard to maintain </li></ul><ul><li>• Error-prone </li></ul>UML and SID Models Change setting on all devices Create service Service Fulfillment Data Models, CLI, NETCONF, SNMP Network Devices Order Management Systems
  7. 7. NCS - A Unique Approach Existing Gaps NCS Approach Delays in Service Activation Lack of Automation Error-Prone Operations Costly Software Overhead <ul><li>Zero-touch Configuration </li></ul><ul><li>Multi-node Deployment </li></ul><ul><li>Device Discovery </li></ul><ul><li>Service Model Driven </li></ul><ul><li>Dynamic Modeling </li></ul><ul><li>Fine-grained Changes </li></ul><ul><li>Transaction-safe </li></ul><ul><li>Rollbacks </li></ul><ul><li>Validations </li></ul><ul><li>FastMap – Adapter-free </li></ul><ul><li>Auto-rendered Interfaces </li></ul><ul><li>Versioning </li></ul>Change setting on all devices Create service Service Configuration Deployment Engine Mapping Dynamic Automated Config synch Config change Auto-rendered UI, CLI, APIs Service Order
  8. 8. Examples of Carrier Ethernet Challenges Customers expect fast turn-up and spotless service quality • Mobile operator • Financial institution interconnect • Private line replacements Complexity of provisioning multiplied per service • 20-30 parameters per device • Minimum two devices per change • Lock-step provisioning (service, OAM) Frequency of change in networks increasing • Thousands of CE elements • Tens of thousands of E-services • Service parameters
  9. 9. Implementation for Carrier Ethernet <ul><li>Complete Configuration Management System </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Web UI based on common practice </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Service models based on MEF 7.1 (NMS/EMS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Device models based on MEF 7.1 (EMS/NE) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Configuration database </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Reduce development time by 6+ months </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce project risk </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce life time engineering costs by 50% </li></ul>NETCONF JAVA WEB UI CLI NETCONF NETCONF GATEWAY Interface to inventories subnetwork managers Service Manager Service Applications YANG Service Models Device Manager YANG Service Models CDB NCS Transactional Engine
  10. 10. Deployment Scenarios EMS Deployment • Add to existing EMS • Differentiate OAM Layer • Fine-grained, real-time changes OSS Deployment • Integrate with Service Assurance • Reduce cost of adapter maintenance • Accelerate service deployment
  11. 11. <ul><li>New industry challenges to provision services effectively </li></ul><ul><li>Gaps in legacy approaches driving costs, delays, and network disruptions </li></ul><ul><li>NCS is an innovative solution for building power configuration management applications </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic, model-driven, and adapter-free </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Growth and complexity of Carrier Ethernet driving NEPs to deliver comprehensive OAM solution </li></ul><ul><li>Tail-f Systems makes activating Carrier Ethernet networks faster and easier </li></ul>Summary
