Toronto (ots) - As the multi-service edge (MSE) market experiences
significant growth, and as service providers look for the most cost
effective ways to migrate revenue-generating services to these new
edge networks, Syndesis is pleased to announce its provisioning,
activation and discovery support for MSE platforms. The Syndesis
solution is currently providing off-the-shelf support for numerous
hardware devices including Nortel Networks* Multiservice Provider
Edge (MPE) 9000 series platform.
Syndesis is the only vendor that provides a real-time view of the
network, making it the partner of choice for equipment vendors
seeking to provide pre-integrated provisioning capabilities for their
hardware offerings, and Tier 1 service providers. Service providers
are working to reduce costs and simplify deployments by uniting Layer
2 and Layer 3 services at the edge of the network but, in doing this,
they are facing new provisioning challenges. Syndesis is helping the
world's leading providers meet these challenges head on, with support
for MSE that includes:
- Ensuring Deployment Success. Syndesis provides pre-integrated,
off-the-shelf support for MSE devices. The Syndesis solution
ensures quick time to market with known costs and easy
integration into existing OSSs based on multi-vendor support and
- Investment Protection. Syndesis supports multi-layer MSE
provisioning through a single platform, which can be utilized
for all aspects of a service provider's MSE solution -- from
provisioning IP VPNs end-to-end, to Broadband access, to MPLS.
Providers can, for example, grow and expand their utilization of
the Nortel Networks MPE 9000 while, at the same time, protecting
their investment in both infrastructure and OSS.
- Service Aware and Network Aware. Syndesis maps the customer to
MSE service elements using a real-time database of record. This
database contains an accurate record of Layer 1, 2 and 3
objects to offer an up-to-date view of the network. In addition,
Syndesis software provisions all required equipment and
preserves service integrity.
- Out-of-the-box Profiles. Integrated MSE Service Profiles
simplify the provisioning process and ensure consistency of
service. This makes it possible for upstream systems and
provisioning clerks to function efficiently without knowing the
intricate details of how each service is provisioned.
"Syndesis can fully provision multiple layers and devices with one
unified platform," said Mark Nicholson, CTO and Vice President of
Product Development for Syndesis. "We can provision Layer 2 ATM
individually, or Layer 3 MPLS individually, or both layers combined
-- in networks comprised of Nortel Networks and other equipment
types. This places us in an industry leading position to handle the
convergence currently being experienced in the MSE market."
Syndesis software solutions are engineered and proven to perform in
multi-vendor, multi-technology carrier-class networks. This is a
powerful differentiator for service providers who want to gracefully
migrate services that are currently on ATM and/or MPLS to the edge of
their network and beyond, onto the customer premises.
