New York, Nov. 8, 2011

Accedian Networks™ the number one provider of High Performance Service Assurance™ solutions for Carrier Ethernet networks—adds VisionMETRIX performance monitoring portal to its product portfolio. VisionMETRIX is a cloud-based performance monitoring and reporting solution that enables service providers to accurately monitor Carrier Ethernet-based mobile backhaul and business service performance, and report on Service Level Agreements (SLAs) with ease and at minimal cost.

VisionMETRIX gathers data sent from Accedian’s High Performance Service Assurance platform consisting of the MetroNID® and MetroNODE 10GE™, and provides end-to-end circuit visibility and monitoring of sophisticated network performance measurement in real time. Measurements from over 100 unique Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are automatically summarized via actionable dashboards that enable operators to focus on areas of the network that need their attention.

“Accedian’s technology helps my network operations team focus on where they’re needed, and provides our customers real-time visibility of the performance of the services we’re delivering to them,” said Dennis Francis, President and Chief Operating Officer of Conterra Broadband Services. “Using Accedian’s NIDs to measure network performance along with the platform supporting the VisionMETRIX web portal enables us to help America get up to speed!”

VisionMETRIX is offered as a SaaS, pay-as-you-grow service that eliminates the costs associated with on premise solutions that require expensive servers, databases licenses and dedicated IT support. VisionMETRIX is part of the Accedian Vision network management product suite that also includes the VisionEMS element management system and VisionACT service activation system.
