Overview

Netrounds is a programmable, active test and service assurance platform for physical, hybrid, and virtual networks. Netrounds is a Cisco SolutionsPlus Partner and provides out-of-the-box capabilities to actively test and monitor performance metrics for L2/L3 connections, as well as voice, video, and data services.

This demonstration uses Cisco® Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) to automatically perform active service activation testing at the time of provisioning, as well as enabling active monitoring of the delivered service. In addition, the demonstration shows how Netrounds detects violations to promised SLAs and triggers NSO to initiate service troubleshooting and healing, effectively achieving closed-loop automation.
