SkyLIGHT™ VCX Controller
is the industry’s first performance assurance controller employing Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to bring advanced monitoring capabilities network-wide, without the need for expensive, high-end test equipment.
This radically more efficient approach to network performance monitoring combines all the
benefits of virtualization without compromising test speed or precision. By eliminating key
cost, scalability, and coverage barriers to network performance visibility, service providers
can now more cost-effectively ensure a better quality of experience (QoE) for users.
The VCX Controller works together with Accedian’s Nano smart SFP (optical transponder)
and compact gigabit Ethernet Modules to deliver multi-flow traffic generation and ability to
monitor the performance of thousands of flows. The Modules are easy to install and cost up
to 90% less than existing solutions, enabling service providers to realize the significant
capital and operational efficiencies promised by an NFV architecture, while their customers
benefit from a fully assured network.
Designed to fit seamlessly into a service provider’s existing infrastructure and operational
practices and procedures, the VCX Controller uses the same interfaces as Accedian
standalone solutions to interoperate openly with standards-based network elements,
management platforms, analytics platforms, and more.
The result combines centralized control with distributed firepower. This approach is unique
in its scalability, and its ability to openly interface network-wide intelligence with existing
infrastructure, management, and control platforms.
