ALTEN Calsoft Labs Now a Member of the Network Intelligence Alliance

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

ALTEN Calsoft Labs, a provider of technology consulting and product engineering services, recently joined the Network Intelligence Alliance, a forum for collaboration among technology providers of solutions that secure data in transit, ensure efficient data delivery, monetize data transactions or track real-time information, in order to better serve customers looking for solutions to enhance security, intelligence and user experience in services deployed on next-generation IP networks.

ALTEN Calsoft Labs has been working with customers to develop new innovations in network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN).

The world is now dependent on the network economy and it is imperative for operators to have accurate visibility and precise tracking of data crossing networks in order to maintain availability, performance and security of applications and services. Network intelligence technology is said to be an emerging category of technology to reveal the critical details of the data locked inside network traffic and transactions.

NI Alliance members are at the core of the network economy and data value chain, involved in the capture, processing, decoding, correlation and analysis of data.

ALTEN Calsoft Labs is working on the concept of network intelligence and has developed solutions in the areas of Application Delivery Optimization (ADO), Unified Threat Management (UTM) and big data analytics that rely on real-time network traffic analysis. The company offers a set of robust software IPs and test automation tools by leveraging a strong foundation across access, enterprise and core networking product development.

Gerald Attia, deputy chief executive officer at ALTEN Group, commented, “Network Intelligence plays a crucial role in software-defined networks, especially in real-time traffic monitoring, applications performance, enterprise security and policy enforcement. As a member of the NI Alliance, we add value to our clients’ R&D efforts in L4-L7 switching, application acceleration & optimization, security, content filtering, virtual appliance development & service assurance, where integration of Network Intelligence is critical.”
