Tail-f Supplies Configuration and Automation Software for Pulsecom's Ethernet Line

Pulsecom has licensed Tail-f Systems’ multi-vendor configuration management and network automation software to develop its carrier-class Element Management System (EMS) for its SuperG family of Access and Network Interface Device (NID) products.

Tail-f’s NCS  is a network abstraction layer designed to accelerate EMS platform development.  Key features include automated service provisioning and transaction-safe configuration management as well as well as a seamless EMS-to-OSS/BSS interface.

Pulsecom’s SuperG Multiservice Access Switch is a CE 2.0-ready Ethernet and DS1 access solution supporting multiple generations of cell site backhaul and evolving business service requirements.  Its SuperG NID is a CE 2.0-ready Ethernet access solution optimized for cell site and customer premise applications requiring MEF-compliant Ethernet services.

"Tail-f’s NCS software is the backbone for Pulsecom’s NetPulse EMS and has the advanced feature set necessary for Tier 1 carriers. The model-driven development approach allows us to rapidly add and modify management capabilities to meet our customers’ evolving needs. In addition, northbound interfaces are standards-based for smooth integration with OSS/BSS platforms and automated provisioning enables consistent and accurate subscriber service turn-up," stated Paula DeCarlo, Director Pulsecom Engineering Operations.
