Alcatel-Lucent announced that Telstra's Application Assured Networking (see "QoS Deployments : Telstra Offers Application Aware Control to Enterprises" - here) was deployed using ALU's products and technology.
"Telstra’s new Application Assured Networking™ service, which is built on Internet protocol (IP) routing technology from Alcatel-Lucent, will bring a new level of intelligence to network management, giving enterprises invaluable information they can use to improve efficiency and operational integrity, while identifying technical issues that could impair operations and drive up expense .. The solution from Alcatel-Lucent eliminates the need for enterprises to buy additional performance monitoring hardware, which can be costly to purchase and manage. Instead, that capability can be offered by service providers".
"Alcatel-Lucent’s Application Assurance solution is offered on top of the industry-leading Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router (SR) and 7450 Ethernet Service Switch (ESS). The solution is based on the Multiservice Integrated Service Adapter (MS-ISA) - which extends the intelligence of the 7750 SR (see "Alcatel Lucent 7750 DPI Technology"- here) and 7450 ESS - in combination with the 5670 Reporting and Analysis Manager (RAM), which provides extensive tools and capabilities to analyze and process detailed, application-level statistics per-subscriber".
