Contrail Service Orchestration

NFV service creation and automated service delivery.

Contrail Service Orchestration simplifies and automates the design and implementation of custom network services, using an open framework that also delivers complete service lifecycle management. The platform gives operators a powerful network service design application, robust administration management and troubleshooting, and a customer service portal that fully orchestrates service lifecycles.

    Contrail Service Orchestration

    Overview

    A comprehensive management and orchestration platform lets you deliver network services built on an open framework. Use Contrail Service Orchestration to design services, create portals for admins and end-users, and orchestrate your services across all facets of their lifecycles.

    You can manage the entire lifecycle of your services under a single point-and-click experience that remains consistent across all deployment models within the Juniper Cloud CPE solution.

    In addition to providing a simple service lifecycle experience, Contrail Service Orchestration shortens the service creation process from months to minutes. For network administrators, it provides a robust service management and troubleshooting vantage point. And for end-users, it delivers a personalized self-service portal.

    An analytics engine gives end-users visibility into and control over WAN traffic through the customer portal. The engine provides a basis on which Contrail Service Orchestration can create informed policies to define how network traffic is prioritized. End-users can adjust policies in real time.

    Contrail Service Orchestration is purpose-built for modular integration with the Contrail Cloud Platform to create a cohesive yet flexible NFV management and orchestration software stack that can address a bounty of NFV use cases.

    Contrail Service Orchestration distinguishes itself with a number of innovative capabilities:

    Openness—Avoid expensive vendor lock-in. The Contrail framework is built on open protocols and data models that allow extensible third-party integration. You can easily grow your service catalog, scaling over time, using an open ecosystem to introduce new virtualized network functions (VNFs). The platform integrates with operational support systems (OSS) and business support systems (BSS) for full business logic orchestration.

    Intelligent Management and Orchestration—Reduce operational expenditures and increase productivity through a centralized service management and orchestration system. A comprehensive service-creation lifecycle workflow helps streamline management.

    Dynamic Application Optimization—Optimize traffic delivery in real time based on application type with a granular performance probe and dynamic, policy-driven traffic steering. Users can prioritize both business-critical applications for purpose-built MPLS managed service offerings, and non-business-critical applications for Internet-managed offerings.

    Personalization—Create customizable portals, improving user satisfaction and strengthening your customer relationships. You can also build specific service chains to align with customer business objectives.
