What and for whom?


In this webinar, we focus on the SLA’s from the customer and service provider perspectives.
– The customer view: what to evaluate when developing technical services to internal or external audiences provided as cloud services from a data center.
– The service provider view: how to deliver and secure the required network connection quality to an end customer.

We bring you two perspectives on this topic. First, from the network assurance and performance monitoring point of view. Explain how a service provider could build their SLA’s from a quality perspective, but also how to measure the SLA’s in real-time with confidence. The second perspective comes from the data center context. We view how connection quality becomes one of the key elements when delivering services to different audiences through the cloud.

We will present use cases from different perspectives in order to explain how the network connection quality becomes a crucial element in the customer experience.

Our main goal in this webinar is to show through our perspective and through use cases on how a service provider can use network performance monitoring to deliver better customer experience.

Creanord is one of the pioneers in network performance quality solutions delivered to service providers and data centers.

Ficolo designs and builds cloud solutions that match our customers’ exact needs by utilizing our own data and cloud delivery centers enabling hybrid cloud and hybrid networking.
