Paragon Active Assurance: Solution Overview

Paragon Active Assurance consists of two parts:

  1. Test Agents – software-based active traffic generators. Virtual Test Agents (vTAs) are ones that you upload and boot from your own OpenStack environment. These vTAs will automatically connect to Control Center as part of the deployment process described in this guide. (Juniper Networks also offers non-virtual Test Agents in the form of software that is installed on stand-alone x86 hardware.)
  2. Control Center – for centralized control and coordination of Test Agents, including distributed VNF vTAs. This includes initiating test sequences and monitoring sessions, as well as evaluating collected measurement data, SLAs and KPIs.

Paragon Active Assurance vTAs are controlled through Control Center. The interface towards Control Center is either a web GUI or an orchestration API, as illustrated below:
