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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data. This approach, commonly referred to as the "Internet of Things" (IoT), enables businesses to use real-time data from all sorts of things including machines, devices and sensors to make better decisions, improve customer service, and lower the risk in the creation of new revenue opportunities. In his General Session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, discuss the real benefits to focus on, how to understand the requirements of a successful solution, the flow of ...

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
