To provide visibility and fault management for MPLS VPN and IP routing protocol configurations
Nokia Siemens Networks and EMC have collaborated on an IP network management product they said will enable service providers to shorten network down-time, boost service availability, lower churn, and reduce operational costs.
The companies said the joint offering will provide end-to-end visibility and fault management for MPLS VPN and IP routing protocol configurations in multi-technology and multi-vendor environments. The product is based on the mobile network management of Nokia Siemens Networks’ NetAct and IP domain visibility of EMC’s Smarts automated IT management solution.
Juhani Hintikka, head of operations and business software division at NSN, said: Our strategic objective is to support the continuing trend toward IP networks. Our work with EMC will increase the overall visibility and control the service providers have over their networks. The win for service providers can be significant in terms of cost reduction and network quality, and for the customer it delivers an improved individual communications experience.
NSN will also continue to resell and provide system integration capabilities for EMC’s line of automated IT management solutions including EMC Smarts, EMC Application Discovery Manager, EMC VoyenceControl, and EMC Infra.
