Meeting the Requirement of Easy Management for Service Providers and Data Centers

Demonstrating the software together with Spirent in OCP Experience Center

SAN JOSE, Calif., November 09, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OCP Global Summit – Edgecore Networks, the leader in open networking solutions, today announced a demonstration of datacenter troubleshooting capability built on OCP-based Hardware in collaboration with Spirent Communications. Leveraging the Edgecore-contributed OCP Device Manager monitoring and managing network devices, Spirent CloudSure solution can dramatically decrease the number of service outages by automatically identifying and remediating issues.

With the introduction of 5G mobile networks, the significant growth in bandwidth consumption has been driving an unprecedented level of expansion for existing network infrastructure. Consequently, service providers and hyperscale data center operators are looking at new ways to manage and resolve post-deployment operational issues within their data center infrastructure. Using Edgecore Device Manager these operators can quickly and painlessly deploy and manage their infrastructure components and reduce their DC support cost.

Edgecore Device Manager provides various functions, including asset management and device SW/FW updates, and offers an end-to-end DC management solution. As a part of its management activities, it also monitors the status of network device components (including PSU and fan modules, transceiver links, thermal sensors) as well as device operational aspects, such as resource usage (CPU, memory, storage) and network data transfer/error rates. Device Manager reports the collected data using OCP standard interfaces, and alerts operators on possible faults/instabilities to avoid failures in advance. CloudSure working together with Device Manager uses this data and many other system parameters, going through an extremely low overhead analysis cycle, and remediates a certain class of issues.

To implement the troubleshooting and remediation functionality, Edgecore’s Redfish® service monitors device telemetry data and alerts CloudSure for anomalies. CloudSure executes an advanced AI-based analysis, resulting in an automated fix (when possible), or a system-wide alert, instructing operators on how to fix the issue.

Larry Ho, Vice President of Software Engineering, Edgecore Networks, said, "Being the leader in open networking, Edgecore understands the importance of open possibilities, Edgecore Device Manager, a fully open-sourced standard implementation for tracking devices, collects and publishes networked device data, and enables Spirent CloudSure to proactively engage and manage networks. Through collaboration with such technology partners, Edgecore leads the industry with yet another way for innovation through standardization."

At the OCP Global Summit 2021, Edgecore Networks and Spirent will demonstrate this network monitoring, alerting, and remediation toolset in both Experience Center and Edgecore Booth (C23), using Edgecore Device Manager software, monitoring OCP-Accepted switches and servers at a remote DC located in Taiwan.
