NEI Clarifies Offerings, Approach to Appliance Deployment

By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor


NEI (News - Alert) is a vendor of what company officials say are “purpose-built application platforms, appliances and lifecycle deployment services for software developers and OEMs serving storage, security and communications markets.”

Recently company officials published clarifications of the company’s offerings and approach:

Lifecycle management. With more than 30 standard platforms from which to choose, NEI has one of the largest portfolios of turnkey appliances in the industry. Customers use their product design and integration controls to deploy the best-fit, form and functional platform for their application, company officials say, adding “whether it’s a robust enterprise security appliance or a highly integrated carrier-grade rack mount system.”

Quality control. NEI’s commitment to quality workmanship and efficient business operations, company officials say, “are governed by our compliance to ISO 9001:2008 and TL9000 Rev. 4.0 standards. This assures that customers receive products and services that meet or exceed industry standards.”

Program management. At NEI, company officials “believe that customer engagement is paramount to mutual success. Our singular goal is to make customers successful. As a means to that end, NEI provides professional program management staff and workflow services that manage daily interactions.”

Design. Employing what company officials call “a holistic approach to design, system development and application deployment,” NEI uses standard server technologies to create purpose-built turnkey and custom products that meet application-specific requirements. “We specialize in designing standard 32- and 64-bit server technologies on Linux or Windows OS, multi-core and multi-processing environments, Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) systems, as well as NEBS certified and high-reliability platforms for an array of mission critical applications.”

Smart services. NEI’s Smart Services play an integral role in the company’s charter to deliver network-ready, lifecycle-managed appliance platforms, company officials say, adding that “it allows software vendors and OEMs to better develop and deploy secure, hardened offerings for either physical or virtual application environments.”
