Cortx Service Orchestrator Expedites Troubleshooting
CENX, a global leader of Service Orchestration solutions for software-defined networks, today announced that it has been selected by a Tier 1 North American mobile service provider to automate service assurance for its machine-to-machine (M2M) offering. The new multi-million dollar order from this CENX customer includes Cortx Service Orchestrator fault isolation, troubleshooting, and visualization of network connectivity, eliminating time-consuming manual processes.
M2M applications are a key growth segment for service providers. According to a recent GSMA study, mobile M2M connections will grow at 26 per cent per year between 2014 and 2020, globally. In North America, M2M connections currently account for approximately one in ten connections and by 2020 are forecasted to reach 27 per cent. This represents a tremendous opportunity in enterprise services - one that needs to be nurtured by providing exceptional quality of service.
"Cortx Service Orchestrator is an essential tool for service providers to deliver enterprise-quality services in a highly efficient manner," said Ed Ogonek, President and CEO of CENX. "We are pleased to provide increased value to our customer by helping them grow their M2M business while streamlining their network operations."
