Easing the transition to next-gen automated design tools

For telecom operators, transitioning to next-generation (NG) technologies and a converged infrastructure generates new challenges. In addition to the normal concerns about maintaining SLA-defined levels of availability, operators now must also deal with issues caused by the multi-service and multi-technology environment.

In the new NG multi-technology network environments, the design and optimisation required to meet emerging subscriber demands are increasing operational complexity to levels never before encountered by telecom operators.

Multitechnology environments also bring multiple protection and restoration techniques (MPLS FRR, G-MPLS ASON, SDH SNCP, DWDM fast switching etc.). There are many cases in which restoration methods overlap each other, creating higher-than-needed reliability with needless CAPEX and network resource usage. In other cases, services might be protected by two different techniques, creating competition between the two methods and a failure of the service, although it is protected.

Automated planning tools have proven to be the solution for this challenge.
