  7. What Is Service Assured Access? Minimum-Touch Deployment • Performance Monitoring • Traffic Management • Timing • Fault Management

  8. Market Dynamics • Proliferation of bandwidth-hungry applications • Demand for Differentiated Services • Increasing service coverage dictates carrier-to-carrier connectivity • LTE/LTE-A deployments with partial/full mesh connectivity • Customers expect the SLA performance they are paying for • Lower ARPU (average revenue per user) forces providers to offer more services while reducing their TCO

  9. Service Assured Access – Addressing Service Providers Challenges • Reduce TCO: • Increase Revenues: • SLA/Premium service introduction • Up-selling opportunities • SLA transparency • Fast TTM • Automated operations • Reduce truck rolls • Reduce trouble ticket handling
