PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- The network efficiencies, cost-effectiveness and flexibility of IP continue to drive soaring adoption rates around the globe. As ever-expanding IP networks get more complex and dynamic, real-time and mission-critical applications demand heightened security, five nines availability, Quality of Service (QoS) and regulatory compliance. To address this growing need, Telcordia, a global leader in the development of IP, wireline and mobile telecommunications software and services, today announced the availability of Telcordia® IP Assure, a flexible software solution for automated and non-intrusive assessment and awareness of IP networks.

"As communication service providers, government entities and large enterprises, such as financial institutions, continue to rely on IP networks for bandwidth, speed and cost-savings to carry mission-critical data, they struggle with security, availability and regulatory compliance issues," said Adam Drobot, CTO and President of Advanced Technology Solutions, Telcordia. "Telcordia is committed to delivering innovative, forward-thinking solutions that enable network operators to overcome the toughest and most complex challenges. To that end, Telcordia IP Assure was designed to provide IP network operators with an automated and non-intrusive software solution that helps them keep networks safe, secure and running smoothly while conducting business in a dynamic global market. The solution has already proved successful for trial customers, including a large United States government agency, and we look forward to serving the growing needs of network operators of all sizes."

While destined to be the future backbone of communications, IP networks commonly suffer from a variety of serious errors, including reduced availability, compromised security, regulatory non-compliance and poor QoS. The cause of these errors revolve around the increasing amount of IP devices and services being introduced to networks, high turnover amongst network and security personnel, changing policies and regulatory demands and organizational changes.
