Sunrise Telecom’s(R) Flagship Traffic Analysis and Monitoring System Achieves Interoperability With IBM Netcool/OMNIbus

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sunrise Telecom(R) Incorporated (Pink Sheets: SRTI), a leader in test and measurement solutions for telecom, cable and wireless networks, announced that its flagship solution for the surveillance of public switched telephone networks and next-generation networks, the Traffic Analysis and Monitoring System (TAMS), has achieved IBM's "Ready for IBM(R) Tivoli(R)" software validation for the Netcool(R)/OMNIbus(TM) platform. This validation assures customers that the TAMS meets or exceeds all IBM compatibility criteria and easily integrates with the Netcool/OMNIbus platform, one of the most popular solutions for fault management in operator network operations centers (NOCs).

As a part of the certification, the TAMS system can now be used to forward TAMS-generated alarms into Netcool/OMNIbus, providing NOC staff with an additional layer of visibility, alarming and event tracking across network elements. With this integration, an operator can now be alerted not only by network element faults, but also by degradation of the services themselves, a significant new capability.

"Especially for today's multimedia data services, it is incredibly important that operators discern how users actually experience their services, rather than simply understanding how the network behaves," said Sunrise Telecom's Protocol Products Group General Manager Michele Campriani. "Our partnership with IBM, as well as the overall concept of OSS/Probe integration, is an early example of how the emerging area of customer experience management might be effectively addressed from a monitoring and troubleshooting perspective."

Sunrise Telecom's TAMS is one of the most advanced multiprotocol network monitoring systems available. The TAMS features a powerful monitoring and troubleshooting toolset that provides network fault alarming, traffic statistics, as well as tools for problem isolation, analysis and resolution. The TAMS is fast becoming the leading platform for customer service assurance applications to both wireless and wireline operators around the world.
