Visit Inmanta at MEF19

This week, from November 18 to 20, Inmanta will be exhibiting at MEF19 in Los Angeles. MEF19 is the global event showcasing network services for the digital economy, where transformation leaders converge and innovate. Inmanta participates as a sponsor with a booth and with a multi-domain orchestration POC Showcase together with Ekinops and TELUS.

Ekinops, Inmanta and TELUS PoC Showcase

Visit our joint MEF3.0 PoC Showcase together with Ekinops and TELUS at booth H2 (PoC # 122) in the Networking Hall.

The PoC demonstrates closed-loop automation across multiple domains, including physical and virtual network functions (Ekinops uCPE and vRouter for the MPLS infrastructure, VyOS virtual router), SD-WAN domain (through TELUS Controller), and cloud (AWS Virtual Private Cloud). Inmanta provides the multi-domain service orchestrator.

The goal is to guarantee end-to-end SLA across multiple domains, more specifically the end-to-end delay between a video server located in AWS VPC and a video client remotely connected to the server via the MPLS and SD-WAN infrastructure. 

In case of a SLA violation, the Inmanta Service Orchestrator is triggered by the monitoring infrastructure. It will adapt the network configuration and provision priority queuing mechanisms on the Ekinops uCPE and similarly on the TELUS Controller. This way, Inmanta can enforce that the end-to-end delay is within the user-defined boundaries (i.e. the intent). This network configuration will be rolled back by Inmanta Service Orchestrator once the end-to-end delay meets again the SLA while avoiding hysteresis loss.

In addition, Inmanta Service Orchestrator is able to enforce the original intent by automatically triggering self-healing on the orchestrated resources. For instance, in case of manual configuration changes induced by some temporary network outages or incidents.

Inmanta End-to-end Service Orchestration Demo

Visit Inmanta at booth 303 and learn more about Inmanta’s end-to-end and intent-based service orchestrator.

Inmanta will show its new demo on end-to-end service orchestration: automation from a self-service portal up to the network ports, across multiple domains (network, NFV, security/firewall, inventory). A declarative, business-level intent triggers the orchestrator to ensure the desired outcome is provisioned and maintained. The orchestrator will take care of the lifecycle management and self-healing.

Book your demo slot

Schedule a live demo or a meeting at beforehand, so that the team can reserve a specific slot for you, whether it is for an Inmanta-specific demo or for the PoC Showcase. We provide no-nonsense answers to all your questions on orchestration and automation.

Discover Inmanta and learn more about:

  • Inmanta’s vision on orchestration and how it brings value to service providers and their customers,
  • what intent-based orchestration really means and how it increases efficiency and reliability,
  • how Inmanta differs from other orchestrators and why this is relevant for you.
