Transforming network operations with Ensemble Controller

2,375 views

Published on

Our Ensemble Controller is the ultimate tool for managing SDN- and NFV-centric networks. Combining our FSP Network Manager and Pro-Vision® and providing open SDN interfaces, it streamlines the transition to COTS-based networks and intelligent control. Our Ensemble Controller removes barriers to service innovation and enables network operators to migrate from manual operations to automated and autonomous control.
