Cisco Knowledge Network – Orchestrated Assurance: What Is It, and Why Do I Need It?

Model-driven Orchestrated Assurance offers an approach to bridging the gap between service fulfillment and assurance. Software-based test agents, which are well-suited to a dynamic network environment, perform end-to-end activation tests and active monitoring that are automated throughout the full service lifecycle in closed-feedback loops. This enables service providers to automatically validate SLAs, discover issues earlier, and resolve problems more quickly.
