NSN Selects Tail-f to Enhance Multi-vendor Config Mgt

 Nokia Siemens Networks will use Tail-f Systems's NCS multi-vendor configuration management and network automation software in NetAct, NSN's network management system. 

Tail-f’s NCS  is a network abstraction layer that will be integrated into NetAct to manage a wide variety of network equipment common in Service Providers' IP networks, such as Cisco and Juniper switches.  NCS allows services to be modeled and automatically translated into real-time, fine-grained configuration changes. 

"We decided to use Tail-f Systems' NCS software based on the strength and easy scalability of the product,” said Peter Patomella, Head of the OSS Business Line at Nokia Siemens Networks.  “Their model-driven software will enhance NetAct’s ability to manage IP transport networks through one central interface. It will also simplify network operations and lay the foundation for superior end-to-end mobile broadband service management.”
