Milano, October 2017

SIAE MICROELETTRONICA announces the successful deployment of iVeritas in Telefónica Deutschland’s mobile backhaul as part of the TST project. Telefónica Deutschland Transport SDN Trial (TST), is a project whose long-term aim is offering value added services on future 5G network infrastructure in an SDN environment. As part of this project SIAE MICROELETTRONICA, a Telefónica long term supplier of wireless technology, deployed its new SDN application named iVeritas offering multivendor performance analytics and preventive maintenance analysis.

iVeritas sits on top of the OpenDaylight transport SDN controller that through an SDN mediator interfaces to existing SNMP microwave links, the selected portion of the network was composed by links from three different vendors.

iVeritas collected performance information from the links, correlating the data and presenting them according to Telefónica’s KPIs. Relying on the standard ONF YANG model TR-532 and TR-512, data-models common to all hardware suppliers thus ensuring multivendor compatibility, iVeritas was able to collect radio, Ethernet and equipment label parameters. Finally iVeritas dashboard showed the network health status, including network congestion, availability and Ethernet performances.

“iVeritas offers immediate feedback on how the network is performing, allowing the operator to drill down to the most critical links impacting the custom defined KPI” says Massimo Moretti Telefónica sales manager in SIAE MICROELETTRONICA, adding “immediate identification of critical links means immediate preventive action, addressing criticalities before they become outages.”

“Preventive maintenance is an important topic within Telefónica Deutschland. As an operator we need to assure continuous network operation on high performance levels for our customers,” says Thorsten Heinze, Network Architect at Telefónica Deutschland, adding “An open SDN implementation eliminates dependencies generated by proprietary network management entities and creates an ecosystem, which is open for highly innovative solutions.”
