The MSActivator™ is a holistic solution to the challenges in network/security testing that uses an intent-based testing approach, an agile abstraction, and converts vendor-specific languages to expose unified API. The MSActivator™ takes care of provisioning/creation, activation, configuration and assurance of devices and services.
With this framework, MSActivator™ provides network engineers with a single, simplified UI through which they can define and s run any suite of tests their network and devices are capable of supporting. With all their devices in one place, network operators can arrange tests and corresponding actions based on the assigned user/group of a device, which means a single test set up can be applied to a single user or across a SP/Es entire customer base.
In many cases the MSActivator™ gets information directly from the device, which means less operator error.
Using the Intent Based-Testing offered by the MSActivatorTM, operators can implement actions to be taken automatically based on alerts, triggers, or logged events, which finally gets network operators out of fire-fighting, reactionary fixes, and lets them look forward at how to continue to increase security and up-time of the network. Through automated testing and orchestrated actions, operators can use the simplified, customizable visual displays to track key metrics across users/groups, implement new tests according to the data, and help ensure services perform as expected, every time.
