Spectrum Enterprise Demonstrates Intent-Based Network Scaling Solution at MEF19 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 20 November 2019 11:43


In a proof of concept (PoC) at the MEF19 global networking conference, Spectrum Enterprise, a part of Charter Communications, Inc., today demonstrated an intent-based network scaling solution driven by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) that uses data from Internet of Things (IoT) devices to predict network demand.

The Spectrum Enterprise PoC shows how an intelligent and dynamic network service can adapt in real-time to changing conditions through the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning and automated orchestration. Monitoring the environment in and around an enterprise location using IoT devices and network elements, the network is able to flex across multiple dimensions including capacity, performance and software resources to meet the enterprise’s needs.

“Spectrum Enterprise is solving real business problems by actively developing dynamic network services that can flex at the pace of business change in the digital economy,” said Satya Parimi, Group Vice President, Enterprise Data Products, Spectrum Enterprise. “By bringing together capabilities such as intent-based networking, automated service orchestration, AI/ML and IoT, we are able to demonstrate how dynamic network services can be offered to enterprises to solve unique business challenges.”

The Spectrum Enterprise PoC depicts a smart sporting venue with an intelligent and autonomous, software defined, wide area network (SD-WAN) that dynamically flexes, using an AI/ML-based network analytics engine that is continuously ingesting data from IoT devices and other network sources to predict the network needs of various services across the venue. This flexing of the SD-WAN network ensures that the right network user experience including WiFi speeds, security and application performance, is provided to fans at the venue, guests in the hospitality boxes and employees supporting events throughout the venue. The solution is also capable of predicting needs for additional, non-network services and resources across the venue and can orchestrate and enable its turn up from hyperscale public clouds or on virtual infrastructure at the venue.

The Spectrum Enterprise PoC has been developed by integrating software, networks and platforms from several technology partners including:

·         Equinix – Interconnection platform to establish on-demand private connectivity to AWS;

·         Nefeli Networks – a Lean NFV-based platform for uCPE service and resource management;

·         Nokia – Integrated Operations Center (IOC) platform to aggregate and process IOT data;

·         Vitria Technology – a wide-scope AIOps platform providing cross-domain analytics

Proof-of-Concept Demonstration

Spectrum Enterprise will demonstrate its PoC during the Sixth Annual MEF 3.0 Proof of Concept Showcase at MEF19 in Los Angeles, CA from November 18-20, 2019. The Spectrum Enterprise booth is #515 and the Spectrum Enterprise PoC is #118.
