ProVision is a JAVA-based application suite introduced by Harris Stratex Networks in 2004, and designed specifically for the management of wireless transmission networks. ProVision offers operators high-performance network monitoring and control, with a flexible, open platform user environment.
This new release introduces device support for TRuepoint and MegaStar microwave radios, enabling integrated element management for mixed networks from a single ProVision server. Support for the Harris Stratex Networks Constellation(R) platform will be introduced in a subsequent software release in late 2007.
Release 6 introduces an array of new features and enhancements, including several major features. For the first time, ProVision will deliver true point- and-click circuit provisioning, enabling operators to easily configure specific E1/DS1 circuits across a complete Eclipse network and it will deliver performance and alarm statistics related to that specific circuit in real time.
A Network Health Report feature can now be used to regularly check network availability and events to enhance the operator's ability to take appropriate proactive measures to increase network uptime. These reports can be configured to run for an entire network or for specific regions, over a number of days or weeks, for a period of up to one month. With the new release, ProVision will also support redundant server configurations, increase the reliability of the management system and provide a full backup of network information and events.
