WCTEL selected Centina’s vSure® solution for end-to-end network and service assurance with a focus on assuring ethernet services and adhering to service level agreements (SLA). As part of a continual effort to improve customer service, vSure will also be used to provide Customer Portals and as the main displays for network health in WCTEL’s new state-of-the-art network operations center (NOC). In addition, WCTEL plans to leverage vSure to provide a managed NOC service to other service providers.
