Salira's Management Software Challenge

Salira needed a well-integrated and unified software suite with comprehensive Element Management System (EMS) functions as well as robust service creation and subscriber management capabilities. Such a platform offers tangible savings in carrier operation expenses since operators can visualize and manage the different constituencies of network infrastructure from a unified management station.

In addition, the management solution had to offer a rich set of open interfaces to integrate into existing carrier infrastructures. Finally, Salira had to offer its service provider customers, a scalable and proven management solution that could be developed rapidly and cost-effectively.

"We needed a proven carrier-class management platform with an open Java based architecture and a complete set of FCAPS functions, service creation and subscriber management capabilities. Out-of-the-box support for standard interfaces like TL-1, SNMP and CORBA were also vital."

"Our customers are looking for ways to reduce the complexity associated with maintaining multiple management systems. WebNMS Framework has enabled Salira to deliver a robust set of integrated provisioning, element management and maintenance tools that have an immediate impact on a carrier profitability by reducing Op Ex."

Salira SAMT Access Management System

The Salira 2000 PlatformT 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. The Salira 2000 Platform consists of the Salira 2500, the industry's highest density optical line terminal, and the Salira 2300, the first multi-customer, optical network unit.

The 2000 Platform, which is designed to carrier-class standards, supports both native-mode TDM services and IP-centric multi-services.

The Salira Access Management (SAM) system is an integrated system that enables remote provisioning, monitoring, troubleshooting, and network maintenance. In addition, the SAM provides the ability to control key features,such as real-time dynamic bandwidth allocation and per port SLAs. The Java-based SAM simplifies network management,and provides complete fault identification, configuration,accounting, performance and security (FCAPS) tools.
