Nakina Systems Inc. said at TeleManagement World it has developed a way to help service providers manage IPTV infrastructure.
The solution covers management of network devices that range from core optical networks to the next generation of broadband FTTx/GPON edge technologies needed for service activation, the company said.
Nakina’s IPTV solution helps service providers enter the burgeoning IPTV market more rapidly by providing a consistent user interface and set of procedures that apply equally across all hardware systems in the network, according to the company. This helps carriers overcome the problem of inadequate element management systems (EMSs).
“Service providers are rushing to get their IPTV offerings to market, but their efforts are often hampered by EMS problems,” said Mary O’Neill, vice president of market development at Nakina. “Another of their frustrations is not always being free to select the best hardware systems because some vendors haven’t had time to build a proper EMS solution for their networking devices. Nakina helps bridge that gap by offering service providers an independent solution that manages all IPTV networking systems.”
