ANDA Introduces Multivendor, Carrier Ethernet Element Management System

ANDA Networks introduced a multi-vendor Carrier Ethernet element management system (EMS) powered by Nakina Systems' operating system. ANDA's new EtherView 2.0 management platform scales to over 10,000 nodes while maintaining management visibility across multiple equipment vendors' products. The company said it developed its EtherView 2.0 in order to support all of its EtherTone portfolio platforms, which include EtherEdge, EtherReach and EtherSLAM access equipment, as well as many other typical upstream network devices such as switching and routing platforms from Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Extreme, Foundry, Fujitsu, Juniper, Nortel, and Tellabs as examples. Moreover, by scaling to support large numbers of multi-vendor equipment elements from ANDA and other major Ethernet equipment vendors, service providers benefit from the reduced time-to-market and ease of integrating best-of-breed technologies rapidly into their Operational Support Systems (OSS).
