Metanoia, Inc. Launches Service Management Hub™ With Early Partners Cariden, BTI Systems, & OPNET!
With service management critical for operators today, the Hub™ represents the eco-system’s key thinking, with solutions and solution providers presented in the context of a framework, thus helping carriers understand how different solutions fit.

With the publication of its Provider Network Health Assessment Framework in the prestigious Intercomms bit.ly/PkoRML, Metanoia, Inc., with initial partners OPNET, BTI Systems, and Cariden, launched its Service Management Hub™ bit.ly/Q5LU9Y, to convene solution providers and operators with the goal of furthering operators’ understanding of available solutions and seeding collaboration.
Dr. Vishal Sharma of Metanoia, Inc. said from his Silicon-Valley office, “Smart strategies to keep the network/services running smoothly, are the very foundation of an operator’s network management plan. We see three principal areas where advances in the state-of-the-
Proactive diagnosis and reporting, where changes in: configuration, logical entities, and performance are reported in advance, so anomalies are handled ahead of actual trouble. Deviations of the operational network from the baseline, or impairments in end-user applications are detected in real-time, enabling proactive action and massive savings; a key focus for OPNET.
Smart integrated systems, which consolidate multiple layers, e.g. DWDM, SONET/SDH, ATM, Ethernet and IP, in a single system, saving capex. With multi-layer monitoring, they can expose vital parameters through a portal, giving superior visibility into network layers and simplifying fault correlation, directly helping a carrier’s bottom line, as done by BTI’s proNX service manager, and 700/800/7000 series systems.
Finally, today the operator environment is highly dynamic, with time-varying demands e.g., streaming VoD, webcasting, or replicating a data center, which impose requirements on the rapid creation of on-demand virtual networks with time-limited bandwidth reservations, well-articulated here bit.ly/OjJ186. To provision such services, network resources must be exposed to software applications, giving the operator: visibility, flexibility in bandwidth usage and network asset management, and a pay-for-use capability yielding precious savings. This is where companies like Cariden are leading the way.
Dr. Sharma concluded, “We expect the Hub to become a nucleus for eco-system players to understand the service management space, and look forward to other players joining this initiative!”
