VodafoneZiggo selects Netscout for NFV service assurance
Netscout Systems Inc., a provider of business assurance, service assurance, cybersecurity, and business intelligence solutions, announced a new multi-year agreement with VodafoneZiggo to support its Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) transformation.
Netscout will deliver end-to-end visibility and analytics into VodafoneZiggo’s converged, hybrid network to ensure the seamless delivery of services.
VodafoneZiggo is a joint venture of Liberty Global, the largest international TV and broadband internet company, and Vodafone Group, one of the world’s largest telecommunication companies. VodafoneZiggo provides fixed, mobile, and integrated communication and entertainment services to consumers and businesses in the Netherlands.
“We chose Netscout after a comprehensive review because its software-based architecture delivers unprecedented flexibility. A single platform with multiple deployment options, Netscout’s solution is designed specifically for mixed environments like ours.
As VodafoneZiggo heads toward an NFV future, it is critical that our customers continue to enjoy a high-quality, seamless experience with our services. Netscout’s real-time network and customer intelligence gives us the granularity required to make it actionable, ensuring an outstanding customer experience as we transform our network infrastructure,” said Matthias Sauder, director of mobile networks, VodafoneZiggo.
“The same NFV and virtualisation technologies that drive service agility also bring significant challenges to identifying network and service performance. NFV networks do not usually operate in isolation, but rather work alongside existing physical network functions.
With 360° visibility across the entire network, VodafoneZiggo can rely on our solution to rapidly pinpoint the exact location of an issue, wherever it occurs. By selecting to partner with Netscout, VodafoneZiggo can move ahead with its NFV transformation with confidence that new and existing services and applications are performing optimally,” said Anil Singhal, co-founder, president, and chief executive officer, Netscout.
