San Jose, CA – November 13, 2019 – The 6connect team is pleased to announce that 6connect ProVision has achieved VMware Ready status as a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Certified Solution. This designation indicates that, after completing a rigorous validation process, ProVision has attained VMware’s highest level of endorsement and is now listed with the official certification on the VMware Solution Exchange Marketplace. 

Developed to address network infrastructure provisioning challenges in Service Provider and Enterprise environments, 6connect ProVision tailors innovative solutions for your individual needs. It’s a unique Dynamic Network Provisioning (DNP) platform offering a vendor-neutral, native multi-tenant environment that integrates with your existing authentication platforms for fast and easy deployment from the moment of installation.

With 6connect ProVision, you never have to replace your current infrastructure unless you want to. The platform’s robust Connector Library automates the provisioning, configuration, and control of devices across distributed networks present in datacenters worldwide – and through a unified interface, provides support for a wide range of technology partners like ISC, Secure64, KnotDNS, Infoblox, Cisco, Juniper, NS1 and Splunk. 

Architected from the ground up as an API-driven application, ProVision introduces dramatic time and cost efficiencies for your organization. Enterprise customers can leverage existing environments as much as possible with the use of Modules and Connectors, while Service Providers can enjoy built-in workflows and functionality like communication management for peering, multiple LIR support, OSS/BSS integration and RIR workflows built-in. 

6connect ProVision offers a number of other notable features. For instance, it includes a fully customizable Resource Manager so you can track everything from cross-connects to contracts in a single place; one-stop IP Address Management with complete IPv4/IPv6 support (including sparse allocation); a DNS/DNSSEC Controller providing easy support for multiple zones in complex distributed DNS environments; a DHCP Controller offering configuration management via API or GUI; and a Peering Manager that can generate ad push configurations to Exchange routers. All of these features are built using ProVision’s own REST API for consistent performance in a variety of environments.

For your convenience, the ProVision platform can be deployed via the 6connect dual-stack cloud or a locally deployed application in your own environment, with hybrid options also available. Top-notch customer support is provided across time zones with 24/7 escalation path as standard.

ProVision’s comprehensive and flexible solutions ultimately give you what you need most – improved delivery service time and fewer outages, high-performance automation of complicated and frequent network provisioning workflows, and reduced network complexity and costs. 

And now, you can enjoy the added satisfaction of VMware support. Your business deserves nothing less.
