Manx Telecom First to Use Monolith Software's AssureNow Solution to Deliver Service Assurance for LTE

Monolith Software and Partner, Eirteic, Will Demonstrate This Mobile Service Assurance Solution at TM Forum Live! in Nice, France

RICHARDSON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Monolith Software, the leading provider of next generation, unified service assurance solutions, and its partner Eirteic today announced the first deployment of its AssureNow LTE service assurance solution. The AssureNow solution has been deployed at Manx Telecom to manage and monitor their entire network, unifying operations and workflows across all technologies, domains, and services.

As the leading communications solutions provider on the Isle of Man, Manx Telecom provides a wide range of fixed line, broadband, mobile and data centre services over multiple service platforms alongside its own IT operations environment. This makes front end service management a critical objective. In a shift towards a service-focus rather than a siloed approach, Manx Telecom needed a unified view of its infrastructure and services, a view that Monolith Software could provide at a lower total cost of ownership than they had achieved in the past.

"We need to rapidly deploy and monitor new services such as LTE," said Kevin Paige, CTO at Manx Telecom. "The AssureNow solution allows us to monitor and manage our products and services efficiently by providing a unified view of infrastructure and services which enables us to correlate service events across many different platforms. This supports us in providing a better level of service to our customers and we can quickly match resources to demand and quickly trouble-shoot issues. Monolith also provides Manx Telecom with an industry leading service management capability, providing a single, scalable and expandable management platform for our Service Operations team."

"We now have experience installing Monolith AssureNow in more than a dozen companies worldwide," said Patrick Buttimer, CEO of Eirteic. "In all cases the total cost of ownership has been significantly reduced and the time to deploy new services such as 4G LTE has been considerably improved."

For more information on Monolith AssureNow service assurance solutions, visit stand 36 at TM Forum Live! in Nice, France to see a demonstration by Monolith Software and Eirteic. They will showcase the AssureNow platform highlighting the ability to unify, simplify and transform service-oriented operations for new and existing services, improvements in customer experience, and the opportunity for immediate and long-term cost savings.

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...

Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources. For DevOps it is crucial to monitor the whole application stack and Node.js is rapidly becoming an important part of the stack in many organizations. Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, S...
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...
