"AdventNet was the only vendor that provided Accordion with a quick-to-deploy management software for our solution that is a competitive differentiator in the telecom environment" said Rajan Aiyer, Vice President, Marketing.  "As a start-up company, we were looking for a cost-effective management infrastructure that could be adopted in our products quickly and easily.  At the same time, we also wanted our ICP customers to be able to deploy the management features in our products easily and quickly in their environment", added Rajan.

The AdventNet Web NMS management infrastructure has positioned AdventNet as  an undisputed leader to provide Web-based network management software.  AdventNet Web NMS has become the de facto management infrastructure of choice by developers in small, start-up, enterprise, and telecom organizations where network management expertise is not a core competency.

AdventNet WebNMS is a modular Java based infrastructure for quickly building custom element management (EMS) and network management (NMS) systems for devices that support SNMP, Web or CORBA interfaces.  Modules available include auto-discovery, network maps, event logging, MIB browser, SNMP/CORBA data collection and thresholds, HTML reports, RDBMS integration and event correlation. Both the client and server are fully configurable and run on several platforms. It lets Device Vendors, Systems Integrators, VARs and in-house NMS developers build scalable, full-fledged network management software in a fraction of the time it would take to develop without these tools.

"Accordion was precise in setting their product design requirements", said Neil Butani, Vice President of Business Development at AdventNet.  He also added, "We are very pleased that the open, scalable, standards-based features offered by AdventNet Web NMS  satisfied both the Accordion developer and customer requirements.  I am also equally pleased that both parties were able to adopt the AdvnetNet technology in almost real time and very easily".
