TORONTO -- Syndesis, the company that brings networks to life globally, is pleased to announce the availability of NetProvision™ for VPN 4.2, an enhanced release of the company’s leading IP-VPN software application. Already a leader in VPN/Layer 3 fulfillment solutions, this release propels Syndesis to a new level of performance and scalability, enabling service providers to meet their immediate VPN provisioning needs, initiate VPN rollout and simplify VPN subscriber service delivery.“For many years, service providers have relied on Syndesis for comprehensive carrier-grade solutions that can be deployed quickly and cost effectively,” said Mark Nicholson, CTO and Vice President of Product Management for Syndesis. “NetProvision for VPN 4.2 surpasses these requirements, solving issues of complexity and providing the functionality that service providers require to provision all aspects of IP-VPN services. Our product offers full upload of Layer 3 devices, physical configurations and logical assignments, along with automated discovery of IP-based services. It works seamlessly with Layer 2 and Layer 1 products and has a full, open, flow-through API for volume deployments. Syndesis, with more than 16 years of experience, is a company that Tier 1 service providers can rely on for continued product support.”NetProvision for IP-VPN fully integrates and automates the definition and deployment of standard MPLS-based Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), including VPN membership, router configuration, VPN Quality of Service (QoS) and Class of Service (CoS), and the provisioning of connectivity between customer edge and provider edge routers. Unlike provisioning solutions which are limited to the management of elements at a single network layer, NetProvision for IP-VPN correlates network and service policy across multiple technologies and multiple vendors' equipment, automating Layer 2 and Layer 3 connectivity in a single operation – all in accordance with service level expectations. Key features include: automated IP-VPN management; integrated IP address management; packet and route filter management; management of routing protocols and redistribution; support for multiple VPN topologies; template management and pre-defined (out-of-the-box) QoS/CoS profiles.“The relative immaturity of IP-VPN technology, regulatory restrictions in some countries and the economic downturn have, until now, restricted growth of the VPN market,” said Larry Goldman, OSS Program Director for RHK. “Right now, we are seeing the IP-VPN market gain considerable momentum in Europe and North America. The Syndesis VPN solution is engineered to meet today’s needs without limiting a service provider’s options for the future.”Syndesis Ltd.
