February 8, 2012
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – February 8, 2012 – Tail-f Systems, the leading provider of configuration management and network automation software, today announced that it has been named by Stratecast as one of the “Global OSS/BSS 10 to Watch” companies in 2012. Stratecast’s “10 to Watch” list recognizes companies for their market savvy, agility and innovation.
“Existing processes for provisioning services and configuring network devices have become a bottleneck for communication service providers needing to introduce new services quickly and reliably,” said Nancee Ruzicka, Director, OSS/BSS Global Competitive Strategies, Stratecast. “We selected Tail-f Systems as a ‘Global OSS/BSS 10 to Watch’ company because their innovative network automation software radically streamlines the service provisioning process enabling CSPs to speed service delivery and reduce scaling costs.”
Stratecast’s report describes Tail-f’s NCS software as follows: “NCS also enables CSPs to efficiently and reliably configure large networks, replacing the use of less reliable ad hoc scripting tools and manual processes. Strategically, NCS provides CSPs with a framework to build automated provisioning systems that reduce activation delays and configuration errors that result in network failures and inventory inaccuracies. NCS capabilities include:
• Single user interface to view and configure all devices in a multi-vendor network
• Fail-safe transaction management
• Zero-code integration with Cisco, Juniper and SNMP-based elements
• Service manager and device manager share a common modeling language and database
• Full synchronization between network and inventory views”
“We’re excited that Stratecast has recognized Tail-f Systems as a company that is bringing a unique solution to the market during 2012,” said Fredrik Lundberg, CEO, Tail-f Systems. “In an environment where service providers are under pressure to execute faster and more effectively, NCS is a game-changing solution delivering compelling business advantages.”
