Full-stack assurance

What is full-stack assurance?

It combines infrastructure observability with telecom-specific, AI-enabled analytics and anomaly detection. As a result of EXFO’s and Intel’s collaborative endeavor to full-stack visibility into 5G network infrastructure, it is now possible to link the performance of cloud-enabled virtual workloads with network QoS and customer QoE.

The technology context driving change

The need for full-stack assurance is driven by the shift to cloud-native 5G functions. While bringing immense flexibility to telecom network design, this shift toward network functions virtualization (NFV) in the context of 5G infrastructure, also brings about loss of visibility.
