OneControl Unified Management System offers a unique and comprehensive solution to manage mission-critical networks that span across domains (access, metro, core, and subsea), with unprecedented visibility through protocol layers (WDM, OTN, packet services). With this innovative approach, OneControl returns network and services control to the operator.
OneControl unites the management of Ciena’s Packet Networking, Converged Packet Optical, and Optical Transport product portfolios under a single solution, as shown in Figure 1. With its unique toolset of comprehensive management features, OneControl puts the control of critical networks at the operator’s fingertips. Through a unified GUI and common management model, NOC operators can rapidly deploy new service offerings that cut across domains (access, metro, and core) and coordinate across network protocol layers to ensure efficient use of critical network assets and bandwidth optimization.
This efficiency provides comprehensive management and control from the access customer hand-off points, through the metro, and into the intelligent core. The OneControl GUI allows NOC personnel to create and activate end-to-end services at the optical layer—OTN/SONET/SDH and Layer2 services such as E-LAN, E-Line or E-Tree. Once enabled, OneControl provides complete visualization of the entire end-to-end service multi-layer correlation, facilitating proactive root cause analysis and troubleshooting.
