Accedian Networks is extending its Ethernet OAM-based performance assurance with its new V-NID suite of application-oriented performance assurance tools. At the heart of the solution is the V-NID Actuator which sends emulated traffic to V-NID agents located in Accedian’s MetroNID, MetroNODE 10GE, or other network element.

Using a patented, one-way delay measurement technique, the V-NID Actuator can assure the performance of specific applications without requiring synchronized hardware test points at each end of the connection. The V-NID Actuator gathers Ethernet OAM, as well as application-specific performance data, which is then summarized and displayed by VisionAnalyzer in a visual performance monitoring dashboard. A centralized approach enables the V-NID Actuator located in the core of the network to remotely assure end-to-end performance by communicating with the V-NID agents residing at the edge.

The V-NID Suite consists of:

  • the V-NID, an embedded application performance monitoring agent which is implemented in the Accedian MetroNID and MetroNODE 10GE High Performance Service Assurance platform as well as other network elements;
  • the V-NID Actuator, which sends and receives active performance assurance messages to and from the V-NIDs;
  • the V-NID Manager, which manages configuration and collects raw performance data;
  • and VisionAnalyzer, a software tool summarizing and creating dashboard reports of per-flow performance.
