MRV Delivers Powerful Pro-Vision 2.0 For Superior Service Provisioning And Monitoring Of Next-Generation Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Services

Stocks in this article: MRVC

MRV Communications™, Inc. (OTCQB: MRVC) (MRV), a leading provider of optical communications network infrastructure equipment and integration and managed services, today announced its Optical Communications Systems Division (OCS) has enhanced its award-winning Pro-Vision® Service Management Solution to allow users to more effectively manage next-generation services via MRV’s powerful OptiSwitch® family of Carrier Ethernet products and optical transport Lambda Driver™ and Fiber Driver™ elements. The enhanced Pro-Vision solution, named Pro-Vision 2.0, expands the key benefits customers have come to expect from MRV’s service management platform, including shorter time-to-market for new services, superior scalability and resiliency, and simplified operational efficiencies in managing small, large and complex networks. Additionally, Pro-Vision 2.0 supports recently defined Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) specifications for Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) to enable differentiated services over managed and interconnected global Ethernet networks.

“MRV designed Pro-Vision 2.0 to provide scalability and ease-of-use for the many performance measurements monitored, which is essential to service providers planning to meet the new CE 2.0 service deployment scenarios,” stated Michael Howard, co-founder and principal analyst, carrier networks, Infonetics Research. “This MRV management tool addresses critical service and element management requirements, and is designed to scale for tens of thousands of devices, with automation features that reduce manual efforts. Service providers are looking for these capabilities, since they are indispensable for network growth, management, and profitable operation.”

The Pro-Vision 2.0 Service Management Solution uniquely combines a self-service Web portal for complete reporting of real-time and historical performances to offer a sophisticated network tool for managing MEF CE 2.0 services. The self-service Web portal gives service providers’ customers complete visibility into customer-specific Ethernet services and end points; Service Level Agreement (SLA) performance data; Operational, Administrative and Maintenance (OAM) status; bandwidth utilization; fault conditions and more via interactive and dynamic real-time dashboards. Not only can customers design the portal to reflect their own brand, but they can view service performance on their own at any time from any Internet secured connection. Pro-Vision 2.0 also offers an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) that saves time and eliminates human error found in Command Line Interface (CLI) scripting. Pro-Vision 2.0’s automated zero-touch provisioning allows for automatic device turn-up, discovery, configuration, software upgrades, backup, restore, database synchronization, as well as offline provisioning of devices and services. Combined, these features dramatically reduce the cost of maintenance and maintain peak network availability and performance.
