December 1, 2005 Milpitas, CA -- OpVista announced that its OpVista WaveMaster Element Management System (EMS) has been certified for use with Micromuse's Netcool suite. With the certification, service providers using Netcool as a management platform for their network environment will be able to directly control OpVista equipment from a central location and system.
OpVista says its Wavemaster Integration Module for Netcool (IMN) allows service providers to maximize their return on investment by allowing operational personnel to immediately take advantage of new functionality in the OpVista system. The company says the WaveMaster and Netcool integrated platform enables service providers to centrally manage OpVista's network performance along with other network elements within the Netcool console to quickly identify and resolve network related problems.
"We are pleased to offer our customers the flexibility they need to manage their networks," remarks Dawn Hogh, OpVista's vice president of marketing. "OpVista's integration with Netcool enables service providers to operate a fully integrated network management solution across their multi-vendor networks".
"Centralized management and real-time monitoring of optical networks are the keys to minimizing ongoing operational costs," adds John Sien, vice president of Micromuse's OEM and Global Alliances operations. "As a member of our Alliance Program, OpVista will work closely with Micromuse regarding development and interoperability of our integrated software platforms to elevate the standard for service quality through cohesive optical network management."
