Pleasanton, California, September 15, 2003
AdventNet, Inc., the leading provider of carrier-class network management platforms and tools, today announced that Chunghwa Telecom, a principal telecommunications and information-related services provider in Taiwan and offshore islands, has developed a unified management solution called Quality Management System (QMS™) for managing its multi-vendor, multi-technology network using the AdventNet Web NMS platform.
Web NMS is a carrier-grade network management platform with out-of-the-box support for a rich set of standard protocols such as XML, SNMP, TL1, CORBA, TMF, CLI, and RMI. It encapsulates a highly scalable RDBMS architecture for data integrity and persistency and supports comprehensive FCAPS functions, Topology, Inventory, and Provisioning. It serves as a unified platform to manage heterogeneous network infrastructures with multi-vendor, multi-technology network elements. It integrates seamlessly with other EMS/NMS systems and other northbound OSS systems and applications.
"Using Web NMS, we were able to achieve a closely-knit infrastructure at a fraction of the cost and time compared to other alternatives. With this approach, our network architects and operations personnel can increasingly focus on their core tasks - network planning and design, evolution and operations to extract the highest quality, reliability, availability and performance from our networks, and maximize the ROI from our infrastructure investment," said Ms. Li Hsiou Wu, Chief Researcher at Chunghwa Telecom.
Support excellence is one of AdventNet's core competencies. "AdventNet supported us through a dedicated offshore engineering team ensuring the completion of the design, development, and deployment of QMS™ ahead of our ambitious schedule," said Dr. Casper K Chen, Associate Researcher, Leased Line Operations Group. "The responsiveness of the AdventNet Support Team was without doubt, commendable," added Chih Wei Chang, Project Senior Researcher, Broadband Service Design.
"The carrier environment at companies, such as Chunghwa Telecom is continually growing in size and complexity, which drives the need for greater control through more automated management and centralized operations," said Sridhar Vembu, CEO of AdventNet. "The Web NMS product provides an essential management platform for ensuring the effective delivery of services, enabling Chunghwa to remain competitive."
Chunghwa Telecom engineers were able to rapidly develop their management solution - QMS™, using Web NMS to manage network elements from Nortel Networks, Alcatel, and NEC among others. QMS™ integrates seamlessly with other management applications and OSS systems. QMS™ leverages Web NMS' framework strengths to offer central storage capability for Fault and Performance Management (PM) data, data integrity, and persistence. It enables consistent visualization capabilities for alerts, PM data, and open standards-based architecture.
