Mexico's Cablemas Chooses Scientific Atlanta's Net Mgt

Cablemas, Mexico's second-largest cable operator, has launched the first phase of an extensive network management initiative using Scientific Atlanta's ROSA technology.

The ROSA NMS is capable of monitoring and controlling nearly all aspects of service management, network management and element management of broadband networks. It translates legacy equipment's proprietary alarm and performance data into Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) for centralized monitoring and control in a NOC.

Cablemas has deployed the ROSA NMS at its network operations center (NOC) in Cuernavaca. Additionally, the ROSA Element Manager (EM) is in use at its Tijuana system to help enable operators there to manage their network through the EM's automated alarm notification and Web browser-based user interface. Simultaneously, all of the alarm information and desired performance data is transferred from the ROSA EM to the NOC where the ROSA NMS aggregates this data and presents an operational view of the network. Cablemas' plans call for the EM system to be expanded into 13 additional headends delivering video in other cities including Acapulco, Chihuahua, Coatzacoalcos, Cuernavaca, Juarez, Merida, Mexicali and Playa del Carmen.
