ANGA Cable, Cologne, Germany – MAY 4, 2011 – Teleste, a leading technology provider of broadband video and service platforms, today announced a tandem of products that raise intelligence in cable networks to a new level. Teleste’s new AC9000 Intelligent fibre optic node eliminates human errors from network installations through automatic configuration, and the next generation CATVisor EMS 4.0 management software provides unprecedented flexibility and configurability to HFC infrastructure management. With the announcement, Teleste addresses a major pain point for cable operators – time consuming network management and maintenance.
“Manual network maintenance, human mistakes and the difficulty of locating network problems are often the main culprits behind unnecessary truck-rolls and high operating expenses. Teleste tackles these problems by adding intelligence to the network. The fire-and forget installation of the new AC9000 coupled with the industry’s most advanced management suite help operators to significantly reduce OPEX, avoid service outages, and provide better service to end-users” said Pasi Järvenpää, Business Director at Teleste Access Networks business group.
AC9000 fibre node is the latest member of Teleste intelligent HFC products. With AC9000, all configurations are done automatically, without maintenance crew having to spend excess time in adjustment work. This eliminates human errors and optimises network quality. In addition to this, AC9000 automatically recognises and isolates ingress problems with the help of a built-in ingress analyser. The product also provides 2 x 4 scalability with the ability to use digital return path transmitters, and it can be monitored and controlled remotely with Teleste’s CATVisor EMS management suite
“TeliaSonera is using Teleste's intelligent network products and management software, which improve the quality of our broadband network. This has resulted in higher uptime of broadband services and increased customer satisfaction,” said Sakari Kangasvieri, Production Manager at TeliaSonera Finland.
Intelligent and flexible cable infrastructure management
At ANGA Cable, Teleste also introduced the next generation of its CATVisor EMS 4.0 management suite, which provides unprecedented flexibility and configurability to cable infrastructure management. By utilising the configurable views of EMS 4.0, the network operations personnel can view only the management information valuable for the specific task they want to perform. The new release also adds inventory management features to EMS, with the possibility to associate documents and links to network elements.
CATVisor EMS 4.0 allows also introduces the long awaited network map view, which adds a new dimension to the presentation of management information from intelligent network elements. By presenting management information on a map view pinpoints network problems without having to go through complex network diagrams or hand-written notes.
“Teleste’s new CATVisor EMS 4.0 eliminates this problem by showing exactly where problems are located. Accurate information about the network eliminates guesswork from network maintenance and management - reducing downtime and unnecessary truck rolls, Pasi Järvenpää concluded.
The AC9000 and CATVisor EMS are immediately available on all Teleste markets.
