IPITEK's Internet Media Transport division (IMTRAN®), announced today that it has deployed its latest version of Node Wizard® Network Management Software for tier 1 Multiple System Operators (MSOs). The new software supports a growing business data Metropolitan Access Network (MAN) that utilizes IPITEK's MSP Series of 1 Gig-E and 10 Gig-E carrier-centric switches. This first of its kind software provides a single, complete Operational Support System (OSS) solution to service providers, allowing them to take advantage of new low cost, high volume Carrier-grade Ethernet technology that is particularly useful for improved Enterprise business service offerings.
IPITEK's new software was created to provide MSOs a solution that automates the tasks of rapidly adding nodes, links, end-to-end service level provisioning and testing capability. By including node-level layer-2 auto-discovery in its Ethernet devices and treating VLAN-based parameters as end-to-end per circuit service variables, IPITEK has been able to automate these rather complex tasks to support rapid circuit adds, moves and changes.
IPITEK's new generation software system is based on a client-server Windows Operating System with a JAVA browser client and extensive SQL database that stores all managed parameters. Color-graphical and tabular screens depicting Network, node, point, and circuit level views are enhanced and tuned for multi-rate, multiport Network Elements (NE's). Superior pull-down dialog box provisioning, equipment and circuit inventory reporting, event history tracking, and full physical and frame layer statistics-based performance monitoring are also added. The new software features an IEEE.802-based and ITU OAM standards--based link layer and end-to-end circuit assurance testing for automated and manual craft use from any server connected Node Wizard client PC on the maintenance LAN, and device swap-out is made easy with device level synchronized software updating tasks.
“Our customers’ network growth and operational complexities have driven us to develop software that helps them to better meet their customers’ ever-changing needs,” said Michael Salour, IPITEK’s CEO. “IPITEK’s mission is to help our customers sleep better at night by maintaining their new-service installations and protecting them from accidental outages.
The new-generation of Node Wizard software suite is available for added support of IPITEK's MSP-10GE and MSP-1GE carrier-switch based products. Node Wizard has previously been deployed for IPITEK's HBR-2500 and HBR-2502 products, as well as their IMCQ systems supporting Pro-Video Services and managed HFC platforms.
