Transition Networks Picks Amartus For Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Service Management
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
ETHERNET EXPO, BOOTH #227 - Amartus,
a developer of next-generation service delivery solutions for
telecommunications, today announced that Transition Networks (News - Alert), a wholly
owned subsidiary of Communications
Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-GM: JCS), has chosen the Amartus Chameleon OS™
platform for its new Converge™ Element and Service Management System.
Chameleon OS™ is a revolutionary management platform that enables
service providers to rapidly deploy and operate equipment vendor network
solutions. It delivers all of the common service and resource management
functions needed for the smooth delivery of end to end network services.
The Transition Networks Converge™ EMS is a standards-based, fully
integrated service and resource manager for MEF (News - Alert) CE 2.0 services. It
supports the full-service life cycle including design, deployment and
operation of end-to-end CE 2.0 services and devices, and delivers a
comprehensive top-down, service-centric experience well beyond that
offered by traditional vendor management systems.
"CE 2.0 is representative of a broad change in the market toward more
flexible and on-demand networkservices, and Chameleon OS enables
companies like Transition Networks to fast track their management system
roadmap to support delivery of these services," said Michael Kearns,
Chief Executive Officer at Amartus. "We're excited to be a part of the
Converge™ EMS and look forward to a long partnership with Transition
"The launch of Converge™ EMS gives Transition Networks a unique
competitive advantage in delivering a complete CE 2.0 solution to
service providers," said Kevin Faulds, Director of Product Management at
Transition Networks. "The feature set and time-to-market advantage that
the Chameleon OS brought to the development of Converge™ EMS has been
critical to its successful launch."
Chameleon OS Technical Highlights
Chameleon OS is a next-generation, carrier-grade run-time programmable
management platform that communications service providers and equipment
vendors can leverage to quickly build next-generation OSS and other
management solutions, including service managers, network managers,
element managers, test managers, B-OSS gateways, customer self-service
portals and more.
It is the first platform of its kind that eliminates the 'hardwiring'
inherent in traditional management solutions. This is achieved by
enabling advanced management applications to be built using dynamic
run-time programmable configuration that is independent of the core
management platform. It combines a rapid run-time programmable and model
driven development process, a dynamic carrier-grade platform, a
comprehensive set of pre-integrated management modules and dynamically
rendered open APIs for use by external applications. The result is
significantly reduced lead-time for new feature rollout and therefore
faster time to market with new services and technologies.
Most importantly for equipment vendors, Chameleon OS frees platform
teams to focus on delivering unique, differentiated management solutions
in highly compressed timeframes (weeks or months instead of years).
Founded in 2003, Amartus is a leading provider of Automated Service
Delivery software solutions for Communication Service Providers. Service
Commander™ uniquely addresses the need for rapid, cost effective rollout
and delivery of Next Generation services. Service Commander™ and (the
Amartus core Chameleon OS™ platform on which it is built) enables
