Service Assurance

Once services are in the hands of customers it is not only up to all CSPs and MSPs to make sure the customer is receiving the best possible experience, but, even more basic, they must make sure the customer is continually able to consume the service for which they are paying.


Service Assurance is the functional equivalent of proactively monitoring networks to ensure issues are corrected prior to customer impact. It is also the area that is contacted about customer issues and employs the necessary tactics to resolve the issues and put the customer back into service.

Vertek assists service assurance organizations, including NOC operations, in performing key functions or process areas to offload internal resources. Also Vertek can independently evaluate and consult in this area to optimize and enhance the Service Assurance delivery.
