Expanding its virtualized NMS with alerts and notifications sent to mobile teams, Patton reduces operational expense and complexity for service providers
SmartNode VoIP… More than Just Talk!
GAITHERSBURG, Md., April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patton Electronics—creator of SmartNodevirtual VoIP CPE and CopperLink Ethernet and power-over-Ethernet extenders—has enhanced its revolutionary Patton Cloud virtualized edge-orchestration service by adding new alerts and notifications capabilities, the company announced today.
Added alerting and notification capabilities augment the Patton Cloud with fault and performance-monitoring tools for service-quality assurance, as well as device and service management.
The Patton cloud already provides automated onboarding and provisioning as part of its full-service, life-cycle orchestration solution.
Now, element status, statistics, faults, alerts, and alarms can all be delivered to technical support teams wherever they are and on any device: be that in a car, at a desk, on a tablet or mobile phone, or working in a network operations center (NOC) or telco central office (CO).
With new alerting, alarming, and notification capabilities, Patton Cloud makes conventional element management systems obsolete by delivering virtualized OA&M (Operations, Administration and Management/Maintenance) services.
Consolidating what was once a constellation of disparate devices and systems, Patton Cloud accelerates deployment—and uptake—of converged ALL-IP networking, telephony, and IoT.
“The network transformation train is barreling down the track,” said Burton A. Patton, EVP. “Virtualization and SDN are re-defining the way network operators deliver services and operate their networks.”
In the current market climate, operators are replacing their traditional network architectures with software-defined networks (SDN). The centralized NOC is fast-approaching extinction, as are dedicated hardware-based, subscriber-premise monitoring devices.
By replacing costly NMS, EMS, alarming, monitoring, and troubleshooting systems with a comprehensive, virtualized solution, the Patton Cloud lowers capital expenses and operational overhead otherwise incurred when rolling out and running an All-IP communications or UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) offering.
“Now, with alerts and notifications delivered by the Patton Cloud—and delivered to mobile response teams—service providers get a virtual sentry monitoring their network 24 by 7 by 365,” Mr. Patton said.
Last week Patton released two case studies covering cloud orchestration as implemented by IP-telephony service providers in Malta and the Netherlands.
