Original Press Release:
New NetBoss XT from Harris Stratex Networks Sets New Standard for Flexibility and Cost Efficiency for Next-Generation and Traditional Networks
Wide Range of Configurations, Comprehensive Services and Third-party Alliances Enable Cost-efficient, Scalable Solutions
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., April 23 -- Harris Stratex Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:HSTX), the leading independent supplier of turnkey wireless transmission and network management solutions, today introduced NetBoss XT(R), the latest, most innovative version of the company's pacesetting network management solution for broadband, wireless and converged networks.
NetBoss XT delivers a comprehensive network view, providing detailed information rapidly, so network operators can manage resources efficiently. Designed for easy deployment, it allows users to gather data quickly from multiple sources, including traditional telecommunications networks, radios, and other equipment. NetBoss XT is available in a wide range of configurations that can be combined with other variants or with NetBoss Manage.IT(TM) to deliver flexible, reliable and cost-efficient network management.
NetBoss XT and its products are role-based allowing customers to easily implement flexible, scalable OSS solutions. Built with Java J2SE object-oriented technology and compatible with both Microsoft Windows(R) and Solaris(TM), NetBoss XT's tiered, standards-based architecture is designed for rapid implementation across a distributed network and enables load-sharing across multiple operating systems and platforms. It features textual and explorer presentations, along with standard and custom external interfaces in an embedded network and object model. The architecture, along with published APIs, also simplifies integration with third-party applications such as inventory and trouble ticketing. In addition, a console control panel provides easy access to documentation and to applications. The entire system features a consistent look and feel across all applications.
"NetBoss XT builds on the 20-years of NetBoss' success in providing a complete, standards-based management solution for network operators," said Pat Murtha, vice president and general manager of network operations for the NetBoss(R) business unit of Harris Stratex Networks. "The new NetBoss XT suite will dramatically reduce operational costs while providing a versatile, state-of-the-art resource management solution. NetBoss XT, coupled with the industry's most experienced and dedicated team of management and software specialists, will help us better serve telecom, IT, government, defense, intelligent transportation, utilities and other industries. Our experience in developing industry-leading systems and servicing large networks in every global region makes us uniquely qualified to deliver the optimal solution for any customer requirement."
Four Flexible Configurations, Full Range of Applications
NetBoss XT's four configurations include NetBoss XE(TM) Element Manager, NetBoss XA(TM) Alarm Manager, NetBoss XD(TM) Domain Manager and NetBoss XM(TM) Manager of Managers. Combining one or more of these managers with other NetBoss XT or NetBoss Manage.IT offerings enables customers to scale management architectures to accommodate large networks.
The full NetBoss XT suite of applications includes resource data media, inventory management, performance monitoring and management, provisioning and configuration, status monitoring and problem management. The NetBoss XT family also includes an optional agent development application, NetBoss XADE(TM) (NetBoss XT Agent Development Environment), designed to enable users to build new, customized management agents quickly and easily, using an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI). XADE allows users to support new elements easily and cost effectively and manage legacy elements not supported by NetBoss XT management agents.
NetBoss XT also offers support for multiple standards-based management interface protocols such as SNMP, versions 1, 2 and 3; CORBA, TL1 and XML over HTTP.
NetBoss XT's Java object-oriented technology provides Java Management Extensions (JMX), Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS), Hibernate (object persistency, Java Swing GUI widgets) and the Jview telecom graphics objects (JTGO) interface. These advanced Java technologies deliver a wide range of benefits, including modularity, platform independence, ease of integration and use and consistent, easy-to-learn GUIs.
