Belgacom Offers Alcatel-Lucent’s Application Assurance

Belgacom has begun offering a new tool to enterprises that provides visibility into which applications are using up the most resources on enterprise networks at any given time as well as how these applications are performing.


The new capability is based on Alcatel-Lucent's "Application Assurance" solution, which is offered on top of the 7750 Service Router (SR) and 7450 Ethernet Service Switch (ESS). The solution is based on the Multiservice Integrated Service Adapter (MS-ISA) - which extends the intelligence of the 7750 SR and 7450 ESS - in combination with the 5670 Reporting and Analysis Manager (RAM), which provides extensive tools and capabilities to analyze and process detailed, application-level statistics per-subscriber.


Tom Wuyts, director WAN, Internet & Security (Enterprise Business Unit) at Belgacom said: “With the Alcatel-Lucent Application Assurance solution, our enterprise customers will have clear insight into how much bandwidth various applications are using – this is a key element of our 'Smart Networking' initiative, which is geared toward bringing greater intelligence to our networks for the benefit of our customers. On the whole, enterprises are very concerned about the performance of applications they access from the cloud – this new solution will help eliminate those concerns, and put enterprises in a better position to take advantage of the cost and flexibility benefits that the cloud has to offer. As importantly, our customers can take advantage of the service quickly and cost effectively, because there is no need for on-site equipment.�?http://www.alcatel-lucent.com
