OPNET delivers optical planning software for Tellium

Jan. 3, 2001
OPNET Technologies announced delivery of optical-network planning software for Tellium, Inc., allowing Tellium to offer service providers planning and management solutions to optimize the performance of optical networks.

OPNET Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: OPNT), a provider of predictive network management software, announced delivery of optical-network planning software for Tellium, Inc., provider of in-service intelligent optical switches, allowing Tellium to offer service providers planning and management solutions to optimize the performance of optical networks.

The software, developed in conjunction with Tellium, leverages the OPNET Netbiz platform and enables the creation of optical network simulations based on Tellium's optical switch technology. Tellium will resell the software as part of its network planning suite. The new software allows service providers to project the impact of network-element failures on overall network performance as well as identify the root causes of predicted network bottlenecks.

These capabilities make it possible for carriers to deliver reliable broadband services in anticipation of growing customer needs. The software also enables service providers to create contingency plans for resuming service within seconds of an interruption.

The new Tellium software will also be used internally as part of a suite of planning products to train the Tellium sales force and accelerate the delivery of network proposals to Tellium customers by automating the design process and quantifying predicted infrastructure performance. The software�s analyses can remove uncertainty about the reliability and capacity of a proposed optical network by predicting variables such as path-blocking rates, load distributions, restoration latency and network availability.

About OPNET Technologies, Inc.:

The OPNET product suite combines predictive simulation and a comprehensive understanding of networking technologies to enable network professionals to design and deploy networks, diagnose network and application performance problems, and predict the impact of proposed network modifications.
