InfoVista enhances its mobile backhaul capabilities

Network management vendor InfoVista is pumping up its multi-vendor Ethernet backhaul offerings with a pre-integrated, off-the-shelf adapter with Alcatel-Lucent's 5620 Service Aware Manager. Now, the InfoVista can support any deployment of Alcatel-Lucent's 7705 Service Aggregation Router-a product that's being used by Tier 1 wireless operators and wholesale operators for wireless backhaul.  

InfoVista's timing can't be any better. Fueled by ongoing demand for bandwidth-hungry services such as mobile video and other data-centric services, telecom research firm Infonetics estimates that the IP/Ethernet mobile backhaul equipment market will more than double from $4.6 billion in 2008 to almost $11 billion in 2013.

Such a domain is not foreign to InfoVista. The company claims that 25 major service providers will leverage the Alcatel-Lucent IP/Ethernet portfolio with integrated InfoVista network management tools. By having in-sync pre-integration, service providers can deploy any new Alcatel-Lucent IP/Ethernet platform and subsequently launch, monitor and report on services without having to conduct a time consuming OSS integration project for each deployment.
