Assure1 by Federos

Always-on businesses rely on always-on services, applications, and infrastructure

Professional Services

Since 2005, Federos have continued to build a team of very experienced and highly skilled people to design, develop, deploy and support leading-edge service assurance solutions to service providers and enterprises across the world.

We pride ourselves in understanding the challenges being faced by our customers and being able to solve them using our solutions – whether it is helping operational efficiency by linking disparate applications together with our Fusion1 solution or using machine learning in our AI-driven Assure1 solution to identify accurate actionable insights and drive automation.

With more recent technologies such as virtualization, 5G and IoT driving the need for customers to transform their businesses, we appreciate that an agile and flexible approach to implementing service assurance as part of transformation is needed. To achieve this, we have developed our proven L.I.N.E.A.R. approach.

Support

Federos provided adaptable support structures to meet the needs of our customers and partners. Build on ITIL and ITSMF methodologies and best practices, our solution support is much more than simply product support – we understand how you are using our solutions.

Our support packages can include a number of options including:

  • Options from 8×5 business hours to 24×7 solution support
  • Web-based ticketing system
  • Telephone and email support
  • Proactive remote monitoring
  • Dedicated Technical Account Manager
  • Quarterly audits to ensure best practices are being used
  • Access to technical WiKi and forums

Training

Federos offers comprehensive training classes for our Assure1 and Fusion1 solutions.

Our comprehensive, flexible training portfolio is focused on helping our customers and partners develop an understanding of the solutions Federos offer so that they are ready to implement, configure and use our solutions to drive assurance of their critical services.

We have a comprehensive LMS platform with a large selection of online courses and certifications available for 24/7 learning anywhere. We also offer instructor lead training which can be offered remotely or on customer premises. Our instructors have worked with our solutions and are experienced trainers and engineers so that they can provide real-world scenarios and anecdotes throughout the training.

Federos Plan for Success – L.I.N.E.A.R.

Learn

We start by learning about our customer.

We focus on their business objectives (and challenges) and upon the details of their network. Of course, much of what we learn is familiar, we are a specialist supplier and most customers follow industry best practices, but each customer has nuances too; we take care to find these out.

We anticipate and plan for every customer to want their deployment to be configured slightly differently to suit them best.

Install

Install a basic version of Assure1 in a few minutes!

Add new data sources directly to Assure1. These can be physical, virtual devices, applications, services, and reference systems.

Initial deployment of Assure1 runs in parallel with existing legacy systems so there is no loss of service, no risks or worries!

Normalize

Assure1 takes a fundamentally different approach to data from legacy systems. Legacy systems cannot scale to meet the new demands of today’s networks and to overcome this they suppress most of the data – and discard it. After all, Machine Learning cannot spot trends and anomalies if it is only fed scraps of data.
All of the data is ‘unified’ on the Assure1 platform and is normalized into a common format to provide visibility across multiple areas that may previously have been siloed. With the unification and normalization of the disparate data sources, we can start to process it holistically. Then we ensure everything is running optimally – training completed, operators are fully enabled, automations are running efficiently and AI policies are producing the correct results.

Enhance

Leveraging normalized data we immediately start to enhance the Assure1 system further as we also enhance the processes and benefits to our customer. We would expect to be able to correlate fault, performance, topology, service, and customer data together in order to identify a root cause. Taking it one stage further, if the certainty is high that a root cause has been found, an automated recovery action can also be triggered with the result being validated (e.g., a ‘zero-touch’ or ‘closed-loop automation’). This is beginning to deliver what we call operational excellence

Add

The Add stage is, not surprisingly, focused on adding new data sources into the platform. These are often new physical or virtual devices or applications, new services, and new reference data sources as well as new users who often require new dashboards and reports to provide insights into their services and customers.
There are a myriad of other features within Assure1 ready to be exploited to transform the NOC management into proactive AIOps including Machine Learning, Automations, multiple Visualizations and integrated applications.

Retire

In a few weeks, we have reached this point.

Risk free, no outages, always adding new capability and delivereing value.

We have successfully deployed the Assure1 platform, and it is being widely used for assurance of the business services, applications, and infrastructure. Systematically replace legacy data feeds and gracefully retire redundant applications and systems to drive cost and resource reductions.

Federos can replace your legacy systems and enable transformation of your operations.
