MobileNOC MIOS Is vendor agnostic by design & is compatible with most major Network Device Operating Systems. This means ability to choose different hardware, open-source NOS, from more than one vendor. This also means you don’t need to make massive capex investments to upgrade infrastructure due to combability concerns, MIOS allows you to easily deploy and manage the lifecycle of devices from Cisco, Arista, Juniper,HP, Dell, Fortinet, Arbor Networks, F5, or Netscaler and cloud platforms AWS, Azure, VMWare.
Advanced Root Cause Identification:
Dramatically improve MTTR (mean-time-to-repair) by pointing operators directly to the cause of service-affecting problems. Accelerate troubleshooting with predefined, customizable, automated probes and an enriched view of anomalies with context and summary of root causes.
MobileNOC’s Zero-Touch Provisioning decouples bootstrap operations from vendor specificity. It allows Network Operating System (NOS) upgrades & other basic operations on multiple network devices simultaneously, reducing the time and complexity associated with initial device provisioning from different vendors.
MobileNOC Infrastructure Operating System (MIOS) is a full featured networking and cloud management overlay, that will help you more easily manage your enterprise infrastructure.
MIOS creates a centralized interface for engineers, managers, and executives to manage their infrastructure, collaborate with hardware vendors and carriers, track operations, and unify events, communications, and . Combining cloud and virtualization technologies, MIOS enables the running of any service on the unified shared infrastructure and dynamically attaching any service to any port.
MIOS is a distributed OS running over Docker containers, that offers flexibility, multi-platform support, native virtualization, and fast deployment processes. It’s a native cloud software with open APIs for automation, configuration, and telemetry.
MIOS control and data planes are natively disaggregated, where the data plane runs on a cluster of white boxes and the control plane can run on bare metal, inside a VM, or in any other environment that supports containers.
Address any scale: MIOS control and data planes can scale independently to address any scale requirements.
No performance degradation: Using a virtualization layer, the data-plane scales by adding more white boxes to the same logical network element with no performance degradation or downtime. The control-plane scales by just adding more resources to the server.
Built on containerized microservices, MIOS enables the running of any service on any port. Key network services such as core-routing, aggregation, and Provider Edge (PE) are implemented in microservices that run on the shared infrastructure. MIOS can then dynamically attach any service to any port.
MIOS patent-based technologies such as distributed logic, two-phase configuration sync, and a high-scale ultra-fast messaging bus enable the implementation of network services over a distributed architecture at telco-grade timing and scale.
Telco Grade High Availability and Non-Stop Routing
The unique design of MIOS enables high-availability where each microservice is backed by another. Using health check mechanisms for monitoring containers, processes and system resources, a microservice can recover quickly and seamlessly as compared to any other virtualization method.
Non Stop Routing (NSR) is essential to ensure telco-grade uninterruptible routing. Using BGP session grafting mechanism , the BGP sessions continue seamlessly when the system switches between the active and standby control-plans.
MobileNOC Network Operations Controller (MNOC) is purposely-designed to address the unique challenges that Communication Service Providers (CSP) face when deploying, integrating and managing a disaggregated network. Centrally orchestrating the smooth operation of every Network Cloud element, MNOC delivers carrier-grade scalable manageability with end-to-end automation and data-driven decision making.
On Demand Automation
MNOC leverages on-demand automation to allow engineers to automate as little or as much as they deem fit per business requirements. a fully automatic process to turn the discrete and disaggregated software and hardware elements of Network Cloud into complete routing entities. From zero-touch installation to hitless decommissioning, MNOC manages the full lifecycle of every Network Cloud element, both separately and as a whole.
Disaggregated networks present an integration and orchestration challenge. Hardware and software from multiple providers and locations need to come together at the right time and in the right sequence in order to create a manageable whole. This challenge is even more important in the case of Network Cloud, with its unprecedented scalability and cluster-driven extreme port density.
- MNOC was built for this task – from assembling a standalone disaggregated router to building huge routing clusters.
- MNOC automates the entire network lifecycle and provides an intuitive user interface to control and track every process, from Network Cloud deployment to the addition of services through upgrade.
MNOC provides northbound APIs for easy integration with third party orchestrators, OSS/BSS and inventory management systems.
Network intelligence & analytics
With complete network visibility, MNOC collects a wealth of data about Network Cloud – including performance metrics, fault statistics and traffic data.
- Generates a unique end-to-end visibility of the network and its behavior. This data is accessible through an intuitive user interface.
- Applies advanced AI analytics tools, and will enable machine learning-based operations of the network (future release of MNOC).
- Predicts faults, congestion and potential optimizations and configures Network to avoid or take advantage of such developments.
Next-generation Service Provisioning
Coupling network intelligence with complete software-centric gear control, future releases of MNOC will take a central position in the service orchestration stack. MNOC is built as a next-generation orchestrating system that is ready not only to manage network elements, but also to provision services.
- Network Cloud’s consolidated and unified network model enables a simplified and highly automatic service creation chain.
- MNOC takes advantage of that capability to provision network-wide services simply and automatically.
- Future releases will support multiple service models, including self-service modules that will allow end customers to order and provision services on tap.
