VoIP solutions vendor Nectar Services Corporation launches updated CMP
Company Nectar Services Corporation has announced the total overhaul of its Converged Management Platform (CMP), boasting that it now enables network operators to have deep visibility within converged IP networks. One of the major improvements in the new version is the innovative Vendor Knowledge Module (VKM) designed for Avaya Nortel CS 1000 and Avaya Nortel Call Pilot, integrating so called auto-discovery of Nortel installations, real-time performance analysis and quality management.
Joe Fuccillo, chief technology officer at Nectar Services, described Avaya Nortel CS 1000 VKM as device that features continuous auto discovery making whole productivity much more tangible, especially for operators of large, complex voice and data networks utilizing Avaya Nortel systems. ‘’Automating is the creation of sophisticated asset elements and respective monitoring yields significant savings of time and labor, Fuccillo noted. CMP organically creates an end-to-end attached visualization of voice assets, demonstrating to network operators real-time status of devices and their dependencies, Fuccillo said, adding that “This is the single-pane-of-glass view NOCs have been waiting for.” The product massively simplifies the process of maintaining the thousands of servers, routers, gateways, boards, systems and subsystems making up a converged Avaya Nortel network. Fuccillo stated, that the software interfaces with Avaya Nortel voice assets at a extremely functional command line profile. In addition to determining whether specific systems or subsystems are connected to the network, the company’s firmware-level APIs enable CMP also delivers configured, real-time performance monitoring and reporting of every element in the converged network such as capacity utilization and trends. Due to ability to manage data at the command line level, Nectar CMP can concentrate inventory on the exact versions of software and firmware deployed. Company officials boasted that operators can easily identify the customers that need upgrades and those that don't, since they can compare versions and refer to basic notes. Automatically, the Software Release Management (SRM) Module, a part of the new release of Nectar CMP, performs this essential task, according to company officials. “Nectar CMP marks inter-dependencies in real-time, and notifies network operators of specific systems or devices impacted by a manufacturer software or firmware change,” Fuccillo said, adding that this “greatly simplifies” the change management process for converged network operators. For different sites and device types, the new automated QoS mapping feature in Version 4.0 supports separate service thresholds. Company officials said that CMP filters QoS events via business rules empowering the system to distinguish between important and trivial problems. Also, other Version 4.0 enhancements include increased support for data networks with MIB import and automated MIB polling; integration of Syslog Servers with alarm receiver and dependency tree module; a VKM for Avaya System Manager; and support for Acme session border controllers (SBCs), providing critical control functions for unified communications across IP network borders. Earlier this year, Nectar Services declared the nomination of Harry Abt to vice president of Global Channel Development.
