  • Publication number: 20210286818
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to automated control loop searching (“ACLS”). According to one aspect disclosed herein, an ACLS system can create a search model that provides high-level information regarding what the ACLS system should search for when a search pattern is detected within data that is output from execution of a control loop. The ACLS system can activate a control loop system that executes the control loop to yield the data as output. The ACLS system can detect the search pattern within data, and in response, the ACLS system can execute, based upon the search model, a search of the data. The ACLS system can collect search results of the search and select additional data from the search results.

  • Patent number: 11102219
    Abstract: Systems and methods to manage operation of at least one network is provided. The system includes a processor, an input/output device coupled to the processor, and a memory coupled with the processor. The memory comprises executable instructions that when executed by the processor cause the processor to effectuate operations. The operations include identifying at least one event signature associated with an event, wherein the event signature is indicative that it is probable that at least one user of the network will experience a predefined service anomaly. Operation of the network is monitored for a presence of the at least one event signature. The presence of the at least one event signature is detected. At least one action is determined to deter the predefined service anomaly. The action is caused to be implemented on the network.

  • Publication number: 20210182362
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to managing enterprise software licenses for virtual network functions (“VNFs”). According to one aspect disclosed herein, a system can acquire a software license for a software asset to be instantiated and used by a cloud computing environment associated with an enterprise. The system can prepare, with an enterprise anchor point (“EAP”) module managed by a vendor of the software asset, a certificate validation process that uses an enterprise security certificate to ensure the software license is valid for an execution instance of the software asset. The system can instantiate the execution instance of the software asset in the cloud computing environment. The system can validate, by the EAP module, the enterprise security certificate to ensure the software asset is instantiated and used in accordance with the software license.
