The industry’s first fully-virtualized (software-based) performance assurance platform, delivering network-wide visibility to service providers and enterprises—insight to gain complete control and provide the best possible user experience. A nervous system for networks, SkyLIGHT streams actionable intelligence to big data analytics, reporting, and control systems—essential to achieving peak performance in complex, large scale networks.


Here is real innovation that demonstrates clear market traction, many reasons for operators to embrace it, and clearly highlights both what is new, and how it is impactful. NFV is nascent, and tools for monitoring and managing it are even more so. The vision and execution here are commendable.
