LULEA, SWEDEN – May 31, 2016

Netrounds, a leading provider of innovative, software-based testing tools for Communications Service Providers (CSPs), announced that its Netrounds Control Center and active Test Agents have successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with Network Services Orchestrator (NSO 4.1) and Elastic Services Controller (ESC 2.0).

The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, Netrounds is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.

Netrounds’ programmable, software-based test and service assurance platform, suitable for fixed and mobile networks, allow OSS and NFV orchestrators to remotely test, monitor, and assure network service KPIs and SLAs. Netrounds reduces the need for purpose-built hardware and alternative proprietary test instruments by utilizing standard x86 hardware, lowering network test and assurance costs while also enabling remote troubleshooting capabilities to rapidly identify the root cause of network issues with minimal onsite visits and field engineering to solve customer problems.

“Network operators and CSPs that are currently undergoing network transformation strategies can now leverage the proven compatibility between Netrounds and Cisco’s NSO and ESC to introduce programmability and workflow automation into their daily network operations processes. These software-based solutions enable operators to invest in test and customer-centric service assurance products that will fulfill their testing needs as they move from legacy or hybrid networks to virtualized networks,” says Mats Nordlund, CEO and co-founder of Netrounds.

The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers.
