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.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
