FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- Sheer Networks, a provider of management solutions for broadband networks and services, announces today the expanded capability of its Sheer™ BOS (Broadband Operating Supervisor) integrated solution for the management of IP-VPN services. The solution provides the only integrated service activation and assurance for IP-VPN services. It contains break-through provisioning, reconciliation of assets inventories and intelligent fault detection capabilities that support multi-vendor multi-technology environments, end-to-end in real-time.IP-VPN services represent a huge business opportunity for communications service providers. Many enterprises and organizations are looking for economical ways to extend their private IP-based networks to reach out remote offices, employees or clients. The challenges for service providers are how to profitably manage such new services, how to accurately and automatically provision, how to in real-time detect problems and correlate them with the impacted services and how to recover stranded assets. This is where the Sheer™ BOS solution can help make the difference."SheerTM BOS was designed from day one to address the ever changing technologies and scalability issues inherent with large broadband networks. After having proved ourselves implementing our solutions in DSL/ATM networks of some large Service Providers, we are now expanding towards IP and MPLS networks and IP-VPN services as a natural evolution" said Sultan Zia, President and CEO of Sheer Networks. "We also are further developing our partnerships with best-in-class equipment providers."Sheer Networks is continuing to strengthen its compatibility with the equipment of the three leading industry vendors in the MPLS space: Cisco, Juniper Networks, and Redback Networks.Sheer Networks Inc.
