Features + Benefits

Device Lifecycle Management

Gain simple lifecycle management of all your WAN devices. You can automate onboarding plans, guided field installations, configuration, updates, and compliance audits, while the system continually performs AI-driven monitoring and enables advanced troubleshooting.

Device Onboarding

Your devices are fully ready for service in minutes. The system validates hardware and software authenticity, images the latest software, performs secure zero-touch configuration and provisioning, checks device health and network performance, and updates inventory.

Intent-Based Orchestration

You’ll accelerate your time to revenue with automated service activation. Paragon Automation translates intent into desired outcomes, such as guaranteed services that are delivered right the first time—and every time. You can easily customize service designs with services-as-code capabilities that enable structured service orchestration.  

Trust and Compliance

This capability verifies and quantifies network trustworthiness. It continuously monitors network infrastructure to measure trust posture and levels of compliance risk, vulnerability, and integrity impairment.

Network Observability

A high-level Day 2 supervisory dashboard displays aggregated volumes of telemetry and other monitoring data to keep you on top of business KPIs and outcomes. For example, you’ll know at a glance whether service-level agreements (SLAs) are being met, whether the network is healthy, and what the key issues are in your network.

Active Assurance

This feature verifies the network’s ability to support desired quality levels before deployment. It then continually and automatically validates performance against objectives while locating, troubleshooting, and fixing issues before end users are impacted.

AI-Enabled Operations

AI/ML-driven operations turn an overwhelming sea of network data into meaningful insights. Predictive trend analysis and anomaly detection proactively spot and isolate issues faster than is humanly possible, often finding issues that are tediously difficult or impossible for humans to discover and investigate.
