Nokia Siemens Networks Selects Tail-f Systems to Enhance NetAct's Multi-Vendor Configuration Management

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, Oct 16, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Tail-f Systems, the leading provider of multi-vendor configuration management and network automation software, today announced that its NCS software will be used in Nokia Siemens Networks NetAct, the vendor's network management system. NCS' unique capability to provide multi-vendor management of third party IP infrastructure will enable NetAct customers to overcome existing manual bottlenecks that prevent the optimization of mobile services.


Tail-f's NCS product is an innovative 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.

"Nokia Siemens Networks is executing its vision to deliver multi-vendor, multi-technology fulfillment," said Nancee Ruzicka, Director, OSS/BSS Global Competitive Strategies, Stratecast, a Division of Frost & Sullivan. "The inclusion of Tail-f's NCS product into NetAct solves one of the major headaches of end-to-end fulfillment in mobile transport -- the ability to rapidly create and execute automated configuration changes across multi-vendor network technologies without relying on manual processes." "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," continued Patomella.

"Managing multiple, inflexible silos of infrastructure is preventing service providers from achieving business agility," said Fredrik Lundberg, CEO of Tail-f Systems. "Service providers are looking for unified multi-vendor management systems that can also leverage their existing IP networks. Nokia Siemens Networks' NetAct is deployed in over 400 service provider networks throughout the world and Tail-f Systems is delighted to bring our expertise in multi-vendor network configuration management to further enhance NetAct's capabilities." About Tail-f Systems Tail-f Systems is the leading provider of multi-vendor configuration management and network automation software. Seven of the ten largest global networking equipment providers are Tail-f Systems' customers. Network Equipment Providers use Tail-f's software to build on-device management systems and EMS/NMS platforms in less time and with differentiated capabilities.

Service Providers use Tail-f 's software to quickly build scalable, agile management systems and benefit by bringing network services to market faster and more reliably. Smart Grid solution providers use Tail-f's software to build state-of-the-art configuration systems that meet industry requirements for security and high availability.
