NEC to Resell VPIsystems' OnePlan network planning solution

NEC plans to resell VPIsystems' OnePlan network planning solution under its own SpectralWave ONP brand. Carriers will be able to purchase this customized version of OnePlan, specific to NEC products, to optimally plan and route their new and evolving networks, as well as create detailed design reports, including bills of materials and equipment information. The OnePlan solution will also allow these carriers to conduct extensive what-if analyses to not only discover path impairments, but also recommend design corrections to prevent failures.

NEC is planning to extend its use of the OnePlan solution in the coming months and is currently evaluating making further customizations and integrations, to make OnePlan an integral part of the company's existing optical network management solution.

VPIsystems' OnePlan offers service providers a single, cross-domain (geography, technology, discipline and network domain) integrated capacity and network planning capability for next-generation, IP-enabled infrastructure.
