  • Integrated, dynamic solution for full multilayer, multidomain service life-cycle management—Combined service activation testing, quality monitoring, and troubleshooting provide fully orchestrated assurance.
  • Virtualized and cloud-ready—Flexible deployment and elastic scaling on all major modern virtualization platforms allows you to start small and scale.
  • Easy to get started—Software-only and hosted components allow for smooth introduction, enable immediate use, and bring instant value.
  • Automation through well-documented complete API—Simple integration of fulfillment and assurance workflows eliminates manual work and reduces cost of complex integration.

Paragon Active Assurance is a programmable, active test and monitoring solution for physical, hybrid, and virtual networks. Unlike passive monitoring approaches, Paragon Active Assurance uses active, synthetic traffic to verify application and service performance at the time of service delivery and throughout the life of the service.

Your service delivery teams can use Paragon Active Assurance to verify that your services are configured correctly the first time and validate that service changes don’t impact service quality. Automating initial service verification and testing helps you reduce time to revenue, lower service delivery operating expenses, and slash failed service delivery rates.

Your network operations teams can use Paragon Active Assurance to identify, understand, troubleshoot, and resolve issues before your end users even notice them. This service performance visibility can help decrease incident resolution time by as much as 50%, resulting in greater end-user satisfaction and retention.

Active Layer 2–Layer 7 TestingSoftware-based test agents actively generate real-world packets on the data plane and measure service quality in real time across multiple applications, services and technology domains.
Reports and Alarm GenerationSchedule and email reports to stakeholders at custom intervals or retrieve them programmatically through the control center cloud API. Alarms with multiple severity levels can be sent as SNMP traps.
Multitenant CollaborationTest and monitoring scenarios and templates, active test agents, and all test results and reports can be freely shared among users in the same multitenant control center.
Fully Automated and OrchestratedRest APIs and YANG models enable the service assurance processes to be integrated with network controllers, service orchestrators, or OSS for complete automation.
Lightweight and Software-OnlySoftware-only, flexible, and automatable service assurance solution is suitable for any network topology, use case, or software-driven network.
Test Agent InventoryTest agents automatically discover and register toward the control center and appear as resources in the inventory after being launched or connected physically to the network.
Instant Remote DeploymentTest agents can be deployed in a variety of formats to meet your service needs, including as a virtual machine (VM), on bare-metal x86 hardware, a network device, a standard PC, or booted from a USB device.
SaaS or On-Premises OptionsOffered as a securely hosted SaaS solution in the AWS public cloud infrastructure or installed on-premises in private cloud infrastructure or private data centers.
