The Operations management components represent the day 1 and day 2 functions to ensure that the infrastructure and service components are operating in a healthy state so that SLAs are met. The Telco Cloud Platform RAN solution includes components that together provide a holistic approach to the operations management for Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI). vRealize Operations, vRealize Log Insight, and vRealize Network Insight together monitor the health of the NFV infrastructure, collect logs and alarms, and correlate events across multiple data sources and components to predict issues.
The Telco Cloud Platform RAN solution also includes VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance as an optional component. Telco Cloud Service Assurance is a real-time automated service assurance solution designed to holistically monitor and manage complex 5G NFV virtual and physical infrastructure and services end to end, from mobile core to the RAN to the edge. From single pane of glass, VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance provides cross‑domain, multi‑layer, automated assurance in a multi‑vendor and multi‑cloud environment.
Telco Cloud Service Assurance monitors only the day 2 operations of the Telco Cloud Platform RAN infrastructure.
