Salira selects AdventNet for comprehensive management of broadband access networks

AdventNet and Salira Penetrate the Asian Service Provider Market with Widespread Deployment of the Salira Access Management (SAM) System.

Pleasanton - June 30, 2003

AdventNet, the industry leading vendor of network management frameworks and tools, and Salira Optical Network Systems, Inc., a leading provider of optical access systems, announced successful deployment of the Salira Access Management (SAM) system at numerous customer locations in China. Based on AdventNet's Web NMS framework, the system has been designed to provide best-of-breed management capabilities for the Salira 2000 Platform. The Salira 2000 Platform is the first intelligent Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) access system designed for the rigorous requirements service providers face in delivering network services to businesses.

"AdventNet's Web NMS has enabled Salira to deliver a robust set of integrated provisioning, element management and maintenance applications that reduce Op Ex and enhance carrier profitability," said Wei Gao, Salira's Chief Technical Officer. "The partnership with AdventNet made the introduction of the Salira Access Management (SAM) system possible."

The SAM system provides an integrated Java-based application for element management, service creation and subscriber management that is independent of the server OS. SAM serves as a unified platform and enables operators to visualize the network end-to-end from a central management console. It enables remote provisioning, trouble-shooting and preventive maintenance along with full FCAPS functionality. SAM further enables smooth OSS integration that accelerates time-to-deployment, and simplifies the typical operational burdens associated with evolving network infrastructures.
