InfoVista’s participation as a CEWC sponsor furthers its dedication to the Carrier Ethernet community. Already, Infovista has partnered with leading vendors such as Alcatel-Lucent, Juniper, Cisco, Nortel and ADVA Optical Networking to address service provider challenges associated with assuring deployments of the most up-to-date Carrier Ethernet technologies. One such challenge is helping service providers to ensure compliance with stringent service level agreement (SLA) quality parameters. By addressing this and other challenges, Infovista assists its service provider customers in developing competitive and innovative portfolios for their enterprise or managed service clients.

“InfoVista’s support of leading hardware vendors with unparalleled performance and proactive service assurance capabilities positions Infovista as a market standout and an evolving de facto standard in network performance management,” says Steve Hateley, Infovista’s Market Director for Service Providers. “We will continue to partner with network equipment providers to extend our performance management coverage and ensure that service providers can deliver quality, reliable communication services to their customers, regardless of the composition of their network IT infrastructures.”

InfoVista will offer attendees three ways to learn more about how it helps service providers get the most from Carrier Ethernet:

  • As a Participant in the Multivendor Interoperability Showcase: Infovista will show how its performance management and reporting capabilities work across a multivendor Carrier Ethernet environment.
  • As a Premium Speaker: Infovista will share best practices in developing and supporting SLAs for Ethernet services,on Thursday, September 25, 3:20 to 3:50 p.m. CEST.
  • As a Booth Exhibitor (Booth #42): Infovista experts will be available to discuss conference topics with attendees who visit Infovista’s booth in the exhibition area.

InfoVista will be the only performance management vendor to participate in the Interoperability Showcase, a lab setting where Infovista will demonstrate to prospective customers and partners, and the media, how its solution supports network devices from Alcatel-Lucent, Juniper, Cisco, Nortel and ADVA Optical Networking.

“This is the first time Infovista has taken the opportunity to participate in this lab,” adds Hateley. “It’s a great opportunity for us to showcase our ability to perform multivendor Ethernet service reporting and show how we are leading the way in performance management of Carrier Ethernet services.”

InfoVista’s flagship solution, VistaInsight® for Networks, which Infovista will demonstrate in the multivendor Carrier Ethernet network environment, is specifically designed to meet the challenges of global service providers, such as helping them to address stringent service-level parameters, bandwidth issues, and flexibility and scalability requirements. The solution provides proactive service assurance that enables service providers to meet and exceed performance expectations for today’s next generation communication technologies and services.
