Service Orchestration Allows Service Providers to Rapidly Turn-up Connectivity Services
Hong Kong, China, June 11, 2014. CENX, a global provider of Service Orchestration solutions for mobile, wireline and data center operators, today announced that the company has expanded its presence in APAC with a regional office in Hong Kong, to serve the high-growth data services market. Consumer and enterprise demand for advanced data services is creating a need for service providers to rapidly turn-up connectivity services and assure inter-carrier performance, with customer self-service options. Such topics will be in discussion at CommunicAsia in Singapore, June 17-20th, featuring keynote speaker Nan Chen, Co-Founder and Executive Vice-Chairman of CENX, and President of MEF.
"It’s an exciting time for the telecommunications industry, powering millions of businesses and changing billions of lives, nowhere more so than in APAC," said Nan Chen, Co-Founder and Executive Vice-Chairman of CENX, and President of MEF. "Users expect connectivity services on-demand, with mobility and guaranteed quality. To do this requires mobile, wireline & data center operators to be able to provide connectivity services that are dynamically provisioned and deleted, quality and security assured, intra- and inter-operator orchestrated."
Mobile usage is driving broadband access growth globally. Notably in APAC, mobile data traffic grew by 86% in 2013, according to Cisco’s VNI Index, and is predicted to have a 67% CAGR through 2018. Service providers can meet this demand cost-effectively, with high quality of user experience, using CENX’s end-to-end Service Orchestration solution, built upon the Ethernet Lifecycle Manager (ELM) software product.
ELM significantly improves the management of advanced data services by automating network build services and providing dynamic services monitoring and utilization analytics, resulting in an estimated >80% reduction in services turn-up time and >40% improvement in operational savings. Service providers can also enhance their enterprise service offerings with self-serve customer portals, which offer real-time connectivity and performance monitoring.
