Enlighten is a multi-layer management suite for managing Infinera’s metro packet-optical networks (XTM Series and XTG Series). With its extensive set of capabilities, Enlighten helps network operators carry out the day-to-day activities associated with managing their metro transport network and services. Enlighten’s full life cycle approach provides operators with a set of tools for planning, deploying and operating the transport network in a cost-effective and simple manner.
Catering to the growing need for bandwidth and more sophisticated transport services, packet-optical based metro networks are increasingly becoming the transport network of choice. Enlighten adds to the benefits of packet-optical networks by introducing features designed for management of such networks.
With a single integrated management system for multi-layer metro networks, faults are identified more quickly, troubleshooting is made easier and resolution time is significantly reduced, all of which help meet service level agreements (SLA).
