SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- ANDA Networks, the leader in carrier-class fiber and copper-based Ethernet access platforms, today announced the launch of the first carrier-grade element management system (EMS) for Ethernet access services with multi-vendor support. Its next generation EtherView® 2.0 management platform now scales to over 10,000 nodes to enable carriers to meet the increased demand for Carrier Ethernet services while maintaining management visibility across multiple equipment vendors’ products.

While other Ethernet access vendors have proprietary element management systems, ANDA is the first to offer a solution that can manage other vendors’ equipment in addition to its own. EtherView 2.0 supports all of ANDA’s EtherTone® portfolio platforms, which include EtherEdge, EtherReach and EtherSLAM access equipment, as well as many other typical upstream network devices such as switching and routing platforms from Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Extreme, Foundry, Fujitsu, Juniper, Nortel, and Tellabs as examples. Moreover, by scaling to support large numbers of multi-vendor equipment elements from ANDA and other major Ethernet equipment vendors, service providers benefit from the reduced time-to-market and ease of integrating best-of-breed technologies rapidly into their Operational Support Systems (OSS).

“Our service provider customers are aggressively rolling out next-generation Ethernet 2.0 access services which include the newest 802.1ag, Y.1731, and RFC2544 OAM implementations,” said Greg Gum, VP Marketing and Business Development, ANDA Networks. “However, they typically are faced with trying to scale their management and OSS solutions to rapidly deploy, remotely manage, monitor and provision, Ethernet networks which are inherently multi-vendor. With our next-generation EtherView 2.0 management software, carriers have the freedom to deploy best-of-breed equipment while maintaining carrier class management options that can be easily integrated into their current OSS solutions.”
