EMC Corp. on Monday unveiled two enhanced correlation and analysis software platforms, the EMC Smarts MPLS Manager 1.3 and EMC Smarts Network Protocol Manager (NPM) 2.0.
Smarts MPLS Manager 1.3 allows service providers to manage their next-generation MPLS-based VPNs. Leveraging EMC Smarts correlation technologies, the software provides a solution that can manage transport, MPLS and business-level domains individually and in correlation with one another. MPLS Manager enables service providers to model and manage the logical VPLS layer and relate it to the underlying IP/MPLS transport layer through the Smarts common information model.
With its unique ability to automatically discover and correlate MPLS VPN performance with the infrastructure that supports it, its capacity to accommodate the largest and most complex implementations and its new power to manage VPLS, EMC Smarts MPLS Manager lets service providers extract the maximum value from their IP networks, said Chris Gahagan, EMCs senior vice president of resource management software.
The NPM 2.0 platform proactively monitors the health of IP protocols, pinpoints the cause of problems arising from protocol failures and correlates these events to problems in the underlying IP infrastructure. The newest version of the software adds support for both the IS-IS and EIGRP protocols, both commonly used in service provider deployments.
Smarts MPLS Manager 1.3 and NPM 2.0 are available now from EMC and its authorized partners.
