Sedona NetFusion will join the Cisco Crosswork network automation portfolio to unify and modernize optical and IP operations. NetFusion delivers network abstraction and control, allowing service providers to manage their network across vendors, domains and optical and IP layers, Kevin Wollenweber, VP of Networking for Cisco’s Mass-Scale Infrastructure Group, said in a blog post.
The acquisition of Sedona will enable Cisco to deliver the most advanced network automation platform for Cisco’s Routed Optical Networking Solution. CSPs can gain real-time, dynamic, and seamless control of IP and optical multi-vendor networks together. They can move from manual operations across siloed teams and technologies to a completely automated and assured network.
