Announcing Spirent VisionWorks Release 22.4

VisionWorks Release: 22.4

End-to-end service assurance is critical to proactively identify issues that impact customer experience (CX). In a time of increasing network and service complexity, service assurance must not only focus on fault monitoring and performance management but also provide end-to-end visibility. An optimal assurance solution must rely on analytics to build tight, cross-correlated models for network and service data. Having a single platform to provide customers a 360-degree view is critical in being able to correlate and provide proactive fault isolation across the entire network.
VisionWorks 22.4 extends Spirent’s active assurance capabilities across the entire network and across all network domains. The newly introduced features will help new and existing customers as they evolve their network as part of their 5G strategy.
