CygNet Service Fulfillment

The CygNet Service Fulfillment platform includes a comprehensive Service Fulfillment and Activation system supporting multi-vendor, multi technology Networks spanning access, aggregation and core layers. The Order Orchestrator application provides the workflow and orchestration of the service. The Design/Assign component of CygNet SPAS is responsible for automating the design of a service from end to end, across L1, L2 and L3 of the network, as well as earmarking resources for this purpose in an optimal manner. This includes identifying the required network resources, ensuring feasibility of service, and automatically computing the end-to-end path to realize the service. The up-to-date dynamic inventory, autodiscovery, rediscovery and reconciliation ensure minimum manual effort and thus minimize order fallthrough, while ensuring quick service delivery. The Service Activation Orchestrator interfaces with Domain Controllers, enabling fast deployment and provisioning of convergentĀ services. The integrity of the inventory data, automatic path computation, and end-to-end automation are also enablers of smooth, efficient service fulfillment to end-users.

Key Features

  • Automatic Path Computation
  • Manual Path Computation
  • Constraint based path design
  • Reservation of Computed Path
  • Compliance to Standards based Protection Mechanisms.
  • Allocation based on free resource availability.
  • Visual Representation of End to End Circuit with allocated resources
  • Activation across Multi Tech/Vendors
  • Roll back support on failure of any provisioning activities.

Key Modules

Service Provisioning

  • Design Assign functionality
  • Design: End points selection and path computation for activation of service across domains
  • Feasibilty checks
  • Performs VLAN /IP Address and other necessary checks/logical allocation
  • Resource Allocation
  • Standard interfaces to integrate with OEM Domain Controllers

Service Orchestration

  • Overall coordination of incoming Provisioning- Activation requests based on path computed or path inputs
  • Maintaining the request life cycle
  • Management of service decomposition into multiple vendor specific sub-services (vendors across/within PTN-L2, CEN-L2 & L3 technologies, as required)
  • Delegation of the activation requests to the mediation layer to integrate OEM domains controllers

Service Activation

  • Activation of services based on the service configuration for the path, policy & assigned resources
  • Service creation by integration with the NE with the service configurations
  • Notifications on successful activation
  • Deactivation and rollback in case of exceptions
  • Life cycle management of service by appropriate interfaces with higher layers
