Insight for Dial Access solution’s unique approach to managing call accounting data facilitates SLA tracking and billing

Insight for Dial Access, a member of Trinagy’s Insight Plus performance management suite, provides insight into the activity and status of wholesale provider-class dial-access services. It gives service providers and enterprises with similar needs the ability to efficiently manage large-scale dial-up services and provides access services with guaranteed service levels and customer-specific reporting. With the large volume of subscribers, phone lines, and network infrastructure required to meet the leasing needs of multiple retail customers, precisely managing dial-up services has historically been difficult. With Trinagy’s offering, wholesale service providers have a detailed view of historical and projected usage for dial-up services and have tremendous flexibility in grouping customers according to what makes sense for their business, such as by retail customers, POP locations, hardware types and others. Grouping can be controlled even further through third-party provisioning systems, provided by the advanced operational systems and support integration capabilities in all Trinagy reporting solutions.

For true proactive dial-up network management, Trinagy’s Insight for Dial Access solution graphically illustrates historical port occupancy, baselines the statistics over time, and automatically forecasts future needs. This ensures the carrier has the necessary infrastructure in place to support its customers’ growth, yet isn’t depleting profits by allocating too many resources. Wholesale providers can manage not only their own dial-up networks, but also provide reporting services to their retail customers as a value-added service.

Call Detail Reporting Gathers Information That SNMP Polling Does Not
Call accounting records provide valuable information that is difficult or even impossible to obtain using simple SNMP polling. Trinagy’s Insight for Dial Access solution with Call Detail reporting directly imports industry-standard RADIUS call-accounting records from RADIUS clients or servers, giving users information on key statistics such as per-call disconnect cause, call duration, user information, assigned IP addresses, calling number, called number and more – with no network performance impact. This data assists service providers in meeting their service level agreements, in providing usage reports to their customers, and in billing appropriately. In addition, the flexible Insight for Dial Access solution supports custom RADIUS Vendor Specific Attributes (VSAs) that service providers may need to track.

“We’re intent on matching specific service provider offerings such as dial-up with performance management software tailored to those applications,” comments Laura Spear, Trinagy’s vice president of marketing. “With our new Insight for Dial Access solution, service providers can maximize their investments in dial-up services without needing to second-guess their ability to meet their customers’ needs. We want our customers to be as well-positioned as possible for the services of today and tomorrow.”
