Ipitek bows new network management system for large MSOs
Ipitek’s Internet Media Transport division (IMTRAN) announced that it has deployed its latest version of Node Wizard Network Management Software for tier-1 MSOs.
The new software supports a growing business data Metropolitan Access Network (MAN) that utilizes Ipitek’s MSP Series of 1 Gigabit Ethernet (Gig-E) and 10 Gig-E carrier-centric switches. Ipitek said its new software provides a single, complete operational support system (OSS) platform 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 said its new software was created to provide MSOs a platform 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 was able to automate complex tasks to support rapid circuit adds, moves and changes.
