C Spire Selects Centina Systems for Strategic Service Assurance

Centina Systems, a leading provider in service assurance analytics and network performance management solutions for CSPs worldwide, has announced that C Spire will deploy its NetOmnia suite of solutions for service assurance. This will include real-time end-to-end network visibility for improved troubleshooting and problem resolution.

C Spire offers Triple Play services to residential customers along with a suite of fixed and wireless services to businesses and backhaul network services to wireless carriers in the southeastern U.S. C Spire, which also operates the nation’s largest privately held wireless network, will implement Centina’s NetOmnia out-of-the-box, all-in-one solution for Fault and Performance Management, Ethernet Assurance and SLA Manager to monitor the company’s entire infrastructure, including Ethernet, optical, core, access networks for business, and FTTH for residential offerings.

C Spire maintains over 4,500 route miles of fiber optic cable infrastructure throughout Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana and Florida (states in which it is certified as a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier), which includes 43 DWDM Spans, 95 OC-48 SONET Rings, 18 OC-192 SONET Rings, two regional MPLS networks and five Ethernet backbone rings, all of which will be monitored by NetOmnia.

“It’s critical to  drive as much productivity and cost efficiency as possible into our service assurance processes, particularly as our business and industry continues to grow and diversify,” said Gregg Logan, CTO for C Spire. “After an extensive evaluation of solutions available in the market, we determined that Centina’s NetOmnia provides the enhanced value we need through its analytics and next-generation network performance visualization.”

With NetOmnia, C Spire can now improve its operational and business performance through an end-to-end unified view of the network and real-time SLA monitoring. NetOmnia’s advanced analytics and capacity planning reporting will enable C Spire Fiber to improve network performance and customer experience.

“C Spire has a stellar reputation for driving technical innovation and achieving superior customer satisfaction,” said Anand Gonuguntla, Co-founder and CEO of Centina Systems. “Centina is excited to partner with C Spire to apply strategic assurance solutions that combine network optimization with predictive and proactive analytics.”
