ANDA Networks Introduces First Element Management System Supporting Multi-Vendor Carrier Ethernet Equipment

First in the Carrier Ethernet Access Space to Offer Scalable Multi-Vendor Support for EMS

ANDA Networks, the leader in carrier-class fiber and copper-based Ethernet access platforms, today announced the launch of the first carrier-grade element management system (EMS) for Ethernet access services with multi-vendor support. Its next generation EtherView® 2.0 management platform now scales to over 10,000 nodes to enable carriers to meet the increased demand for Carrier Ethernet services while maintaining management visibility across multiple equipment vendors’ products.

While other Ethernet access vendors have proprietary element management systems, ANDA is the first to offer a solution that can manage other vendors’ equipment in addition to its own. EtherView 2.0 supports all of ANDA’s EtherTone® portfolio platforms, which include EtherEdge, EtherReach and EtherSLAM access equipment, as well as many other typical upstream network devices such as switching and routing platforms from Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Extreme, Foundry, Fujitsu, Juniper, Nortel, and Tellabs as examples. Moreover, by scaling to support large numbers of multi-vendor equipment elements from ANDA and other major Ethernet equipment vendors, service providers benefit from the reduced time-to-market and ease of integrating best-of-breed technologies rapidly into their Operational Support Systems (OSS).

“Our service provider customers are aggressively rolling out next-generation Ethernet 2.0 access services which include the newest 802.1ag, Y.1731, and RFC2544 OAM implementations,” said Greg Gum, VP Marketing and Business Development, ANDA Networks. “However, they typically are faced with trying to scale their management and OSS solutions to rapidly deploy, remotely manage, monitor and provision, Ethernet networks which are inherently multi-vendor. With our next-generation EtherView 2.0 management software, carriers have the freedom to deploy best-of-breed equipment while maintaining carrier class management options that can be easily integrated into their current OSS solutions.”

“Service providers are beginning to realize the importance of integration among products from disparate vendors,” notes Nancee Ruzicka, Sr. Research Analyst, Stratecast. “The cost of network ownership is becoming overwhelming as multiple vendor updates require more time and budget to install, test and integrate. With an integrated, multi-vendor supported network operating system, service providers can rapidly deploy and maintain best-of-breed solutions.”

EtherView 2.0 is powered by Nakina Network OS™ (NOS), a software-based, multi-vendor, multi-domain management solution for telecom and data networks. ANDA has integrated Nakina’s multi-vendor NOS support with ANDA’s EtherView management platform to provide carriers a way to more easily manage heterogeneous network elements for fault, configuration, accounting, performance, and security functions (FCAPS).

“With service providers struggling to keep pace with the rapid growth of their multi-vendor, multi-technology Carrier Ethernet buildouts, the introduction of ANDA’s EtherView 2.0 couldn’t be more timely,” said Mary O’Neill, VP Market Development and Professional Services at Nakina Systems. “The two companies already work together with multiple customers, and share the same vendor-neutral standards-based approach to developing products that support the rapid expansion and scale of carrier IP and Ethernet infrastructure builds. By using Nakina’s NOS as a platform on which to build its EtherView product line, ANDA can offer its customers a truly differentiated, carrier grade, scalable, reliable and secure management solution. These new off-the-shelf capabilities enable carriers to better discover, secure, configure and manage any and all elements in the network while minimizing the extensive integration necessary into their OSS when rolling out new services.”

EtherView 2.0 has the ability to scale to over 10,000 multi-vendor nodes, and supports the latest open standards, including the TM Forum’s TMF 854 specified MTOSI 1.1 and future 2.0 interface (Multi-Technology Operations System Interface) which provides a set of open and flexible interfaces to manage the complexity involved in interconnecting higher layer Operations Systems (OSS) in heterogeneous service provider networks. Thus, EtherView 2.0 accelerates service providers’ time to market edge while minimizing OPEX involved with the complexity of extensive integration across various legacy and new vendor gear resident in the network.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
