WaveSmith Networks unveils its WaveFlow Element Management System

Nov. 5, 2001
Nov. 5, 2001--WaveSmith Networks today announced the details of its WaveFlow Element Management System (EMS) for the Distributed Node (DN) multiservice switch product family.

WaveSmith Networks today announced the details of its WaveFlow Element Management System (EMS) for the Distributed Node (DN) multiservice switch product family.

The WaveFlow EMS allows carriers to configure the DN multiservice switch product family as well as streamline new service creation by tying directly into existing operation support systems (OSSs), claims the company. The WaveFlow EMS is based on the Telecommunication Management Network (TMN) model, which defines a standard framework for fault management, configuration, accounting, performance, and security tasks.

"WaveSmith has put a great deal of effort into the WaveFlow EMS. They recognize the importance of OSS integration and developed a platform that easily integrates into existing carrier networks, and provides new features such as domain management, and support for both GUI and command line interfaces," said Michael Howard, principal analyst and president of Infonetics Research. "Because WaveSmith is targeting large, incumbent carriers, it's critical that their EMS looks and acts like existing platforms because carriers do not want to re-train network managers on yet another proprietary EMS. WaveSmith recognizes this and has minimized the normally burdensome efforts carriers must make when they deploy new products."

Pricing for the WaveFlow EMS starts at $17,500 for a basic configuration. It will be available Q4 2001, which is in conjunction with the availability of the DN product family.
