Metaswitch Network Provides Unified Management for Advanced Carrier Services

By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor

“At the core of every Metaswitch network, the MetaView Network Management System provides unified management with an easy-to-use graphical user interface.” This is good news for advanced carrier services.

So say officials of Metaswitch, who, well, who should know what the advanced carrier services market needs. The idea is to provide a unified management environment across the entire Metaswitch product range, including MetaSphere, CommPortal, Universal Media Gateway (News - Alert) and Media Resource Server.

Doing so, company officials say, means MetaView can enhance your ability to reduce operational costs and introduce new services into your network. This is because MetaView NMS simplifies the management of your network, through integration with all members of the MetaView family.

Those family members include MetaView Web, an intuitive web-based subscriber- management suite, designed around the needs of provisioning and customer support staff.

MetaView Explorer is also a part of this suite and is a Java-based client that enhances your ability to reduce operational costs, and a Service Assurance Server, described by company officials as a diagnostics platform enabling technicians to diagnose many common configuration, network and interoperability problems.

At the core of every Metaswitch network, company officials say, is the MetaView Network Management System, which provides provisioning, configuration, fault reporting, statistics and trouble-shooting services across the entire Metaswitch product range.

The MetaView platform is based on a three-tier architecture, comprising the Network Elements being managed, the MetaView Server, an aggregation entity which manages the multiple network elements and presents an upstream SNMP/Corba interface to the MetaView Explorer and Web clients and third-party OSS, billing, and network monitoring platforms such as IBM (News - Alert) Tivoli Netcool.

In related advanced carrier services news, TMCnet recently had the news that following the acquisition of Colibria (News - Alert) in April of this year, Metaswitch Networks is demonstrating its continued commitment to investing and building its position in mobility with the release of an RCS-e 1.1 compliant Instant Messaging Server.
