Overture Receives Patent on Ethernet Status Indicator

Overture Networks was awarded its seventh patent, No 7,069,512 on "Command Line Interface with Indication of Network Element Status", which enables operators of Overture Networks' ISG family of products to quickly ascertain the operational status of nodes in their networks. Other patents held by Overture Networks are in the pseudo- wire and protected switching ring fields.

Overture said its patented Command Line Interface (CLI) status indicator provides a simple, unobtrusive visual indication of an issue requiring attention. Operators can determine at a glance the severity of the issue based on Overture Networks' unique fault classification identifications, making problem isolation and resolution faster and simpler.
