With service management critical for operators today, the Hub™ represents the eco-system’s key thinking, with solutions and solution providers presented in the context of a framework, thus helping carriers understand how different solutions fit.
Online PR News – 14-October-2012 – Mountain View, California – Service and Performance Management are vital today for operator’s worldwide, because their core business (happy customers!) depends critically on the ability to manage the services and performance of their network!
With the publication of its Provider Network Health Assessment Framework in the prestigious Intercomms http://bit.ly/PkoRML, Metanoia, Inc., with initial partners OPNET, BTI Systems, and Cariden, launched its Service Management Hub™ http://bit.ly/Q5LU9Y, to convene solution providers and operators with the goal of furthering operators’ understanding of available solutions and seeding collaboration.
Dr. Vishal Sharma of Metanoia, Inc. said from his Silicon-Valley office, “Smart strategies to keep the network/services running smoothly, are the very foundation of an operator’s network management plan. We see three principal areas where advances in the state-of-the-art can help operators immensely.”
Proactive diagnosis and reporting, where changes in: configuration, logical entities, and performance are reported in advance, so anomalies are handled ahead of actual trouble. Deviations of the operational network from the baseline, or impairments in end-user applications are detected in real-time, enabling proactive action and massive savings; a key focus for OPNET.
Smart integrated systems, which consolidate multiple layers, e.g. DWDM, SONET/SDH, ATM, Ethernet and IP, in a single system, saving capex. With multi-layer monitoring, they can expose vital parameters through a portal, giving superior visibility into network layers and simplifying fault correlation, directly helping a carrier’s bottom line, as done by BTI’s proNX service manager, and 700/800/7000 series systems.
Finally, today the operator environment is highly dynamic, with time-varying demands e.g., streaming VoD, webcasting, or replicating a data center, which impose requirements on the rapid creation of on-demand virtual networks with time-limited bandwidth reservations, well-articulated here http://bit.ly/OjJ186. To provision such services, network resources must be exposed to software applications, giving the operator: visibility, flexibility in bandwidth usage and network asset management, and a pay-for-use capability yielding precious savings. This is where companies like Cariden are leading the way.
Dr. Sharma concluded, “We expect the Hub to become a nucleus for eco-system players to understand the service management space, and look forward to other players joining this initiative!”
