Frost & Sullivan Chooses Netrounds For Company’s Agile Network Enablement Solution
LULEA, SWEDEN – May 24, 2016 –
Analyst firm Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan has chosen Netrounds, a leading provider of innovative, software-based testing tools for Communications Service Providers (CSPs), as a Global ’10 to Watch’ ODAM (Operations, Orchestration, Data Analytics & Monetization) Company for 2016.
Netrounds was selected as Stratecast believes the concept of Orchestrated Assurance proves that Netrounds is among those companies initiating the necessary transformation to a new kind of ODAM. Orchestrated Assurance is the practice of using NFV-compliant, software-based Test Agents to test and assure network services throughout the full life cycle (activation testing, continuous assurance, and trouble shooting). Stratecast maintains that service orchestration, not network management, is the key to supporting next-generation services, business models, and relationships.
“Netrounds aims to provide telecommunications providers who are undergoing today’s virtual transformations with a dynamic test and assurance solution that can adapt to their needs as they begin deploying agile, next generation networks,” says Mats Nordlund, CEO and Co-founder of Netrounds. “We understand that network operators and service providers will have different testing and assurance requirements tomorrow than they do today, and we created Netrounds to provide them with an easy-to-use, dynamic tool that will evolve with their new services offerings.”
“Service assurance has long been a fundamental requirement for delivering quality communications services. However, next-generation networks built on virtual, cloud-based infrastructure will create a new set of agile assurance requirements that extend far beyond the fundamental. An opportunity has opened for suppliers who can provide next-generation assurance for the full lifecycle of complex, multi-party, multi-technology services,” said Tim McElligott, Senior Consulting Analyst at Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan. “Netrounds is seizing on this opportunity by unifying assurance and orchestration across network domains and between physical and virtual service endpoints, thereby providing a path forward for suppliers as they transition.”
