PARIS -- Alcatel (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) today announced it has further strengthened its catalog by introducing the Alcatel 1352 Compact Manager (CM), a new network management application particularly suited for small to medium-scale multi-service transport networks. Leveraging Alcatel's leading expertise in management solutions, the Alcatel 1352 CM helps network operators streamline the operational efficiency of these smaller networks by providing a compact, effective management tool applicable to both legacy SDH and WDM networks and growing data traffic, such as Ethernet, MPLS, ATM, and storage networking.

The Alcatel 1352 CM is an easy-to-use, PC-based management solution with powerful operating, administrating, maintenance and provisioning functions for transmission. Operators ? including small network providers, utility companies and large network providers who need to split their network in smaller management areas ? can view and access all the deployed network elements. A simple click enables evaluation of the working status and activates real-time maintenance activities where and when needed. This ability allows network providers to have a powerful, centralized, multi-operator management system for non-stop control of network operation.

As part of the Alcatel 1350 management suite, the Alcatel 1352 CM is a future proof solution, fully committed to support the introduction of new technology and network elements, as well as migrations to network management applications such as the Alcatel 1353 Element Manager and 1354 Network Manager which are more suited to larger networks.

"Today, operators require highly flexible and simple management solutions to efficiently operate their networks, often in a multi-service and multi-technology environment," stated Romano Valussi, president of Alcatel's optical networks activities. "The Alcatel 1352 CM builds on Alcatel's proven expertise in delivering cost-effective network management applications which allow to properly manage the network and yet are easy to use and adapt to specific needs of diversified network providers."
