Pro-Visionยฎ Supports Multilayer Packet and Optical Provisioning, Management and Reporting to enable Agile, Assured and Orchestrated Networks

CHATSWORTH, CAโ€”November 17, 2015โ€”MRV Communications โ„ข, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVC) (โ€œMRVยฎโ€), a global provider of innovative packet and optical solutions, today announced the availability of Pro-Vision 3.2.1 which enables the complete provisioning, management, troubleshooting and reporting of packet and optical services. Lifecycle orchestration of MEF CE2.0 and Optical Transport services is streamlined and automated with intuitive GUI-based screens that speed up service creation, monitoring and troubleshooting. Pro-Vision combined with MRVโ€™s OD, OptiPacketยฎ, and OptiSwitchยฎ product lines, which also offer ROADMs and 100G interfaces, enables complete control of optical transport and packet services for innovative, next-generation access networks and services.

โ€œThis release of Pro-Vision adds optical service lifecycle orchestration for WDM services including automated path computation with impairment awareness, real-time and historical service monitoring, thresholds and alerts for numerous service characteristics, as well as troubleshooting capabilities that include service-level activation testing as well as alarming with root cause analysis,โ€ said Adam Scheer, Senior Vice President of Product Line Management and Corporate Development. โ€œThese optical features are in addition to the complete array of MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 packet service orchestration capabilities for which Pro-Vision is already widely deployed.โ€

โ€œIt has become quite apparent during the last year that Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) progress will be critical to deploy dynamic services with the automation that carriers clearly want,โ€ stated Michael Howard, Senior Research Director for IHS Technology. โ€œAnd the reality is that LSO has only just started. Carriers tell us that their customers are asking for dynamic Ethernet services and bandwidth on demand, yet these offerings are a small but growing part of the Ethernet services market. The automation inherent in LSO for the packet and optical layers can significantly reduce time-to-service delivery and minimizes the human resources required to manage networks, thereby reducing operational costs. โ€œ

Pro-Vision addresses the phases of LSO from planning through activation and monitoring, including maintenance and troubleshooting. As conveyed by Michael Howard, the reduction of time to service delivery and minimizing of required resources are important requirements for delivering quality assured dynamic and flexible Optical Transport as well as MEF compliant CE 2.0 services that are a rapidly growing portion of service providersโ€™ revenues.

Additionally, Pro-Vision introduces a new Optical Channel Monitoring capability that works in concert with a dedicated module that is part of MRVโ€™s optical transport portfolio and can automatically monitor up to eight 40- or 80-channel DWDM trunks per module. This tool enables users to simplify and automate troubleshooting by setting thresholds, generating automated alerts, and gathering historical information about performance of each individual wavelength on all of the monitored trunks for historical review, and reporting, as well as enabling export to customer portals or standard file types.
