Network management systems

Built around high-available and scalable data architecture, our Ensemble Controller and Ensemble Sync Director combine our proven and widely applied FSP network management solution with latest SDN control and virtualised network management for full control of the synchronisation as well as the underlying transport network. With continuous, real-time visibility into the entire synchronisation network in graphical format, operators can easily and efficiently prevent synchronisation outages and loss of quality.


Ensemble Controller

Our Ensemble Controller is a user-friendly management system specifically engineered for networks built from ADVA FSP and OSA elements.

Combining network management with domain control

Our Ensemble Controller is part of our comprehensive Ensemble software solution suite for advanced operation and control of physical and virtualized networks. With its management capabilities, it streamlines operational processes, helps to isolate faults, gathers performance data and delivers comprehensive reporting. Thanks to an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) and multitude of sorting and filtering options, operational staff can easily and efficiently manage the network, no matter how big or complex it is.

With our Ensemble Controller’s automated procedures, even tedious and long processes, such as network element backups or software downloads, become child’s play. Open SDN interfaces simplify the integration into overarching orchestrators for automated dissemination of abstracted resource information and network health as well as automated service activation.

Ensemble Sync Director

Our Ensemble Sync Director uses topology mapping to display the entire synchronisation infrastructure in graphical format, including synchronisation network resources, the relationships between them, and the health of the entire infrastructure.

Timing management and sync assurance

Distributing and assuring phase, frequency and time-of-day synchronisation are critical components of today’s communication networks. Network operations increasingly depends on centralized visibility and control of this mission-critical timing environment. Our Ensemble Sync Director provides the flexibility, availability, scalability and performance required to meet growing demand for network and application synchronisation.

With our Ensemble Sync Director, the highest performance of time-critical network applications is guaranteed. Designed from the bottom up to support continuous assessment and assured timing precision for today’s critical infrastructure networks, our Ensemble Sync Director supports the complete Syncjack™ test framework. It configures, initiates and monitors all Syncjack™ routines and schedules test procedures, enabling step-by-step troubleshooting and fault isolation.
