New Software Agents Extend XACCT’s Industry-Leading Network-to-Business Platform

Reading, UK, June 18, 2001—XACCT Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of business infrastructure software solutions for IP networks, today announced the release of additional intelligent software agents that further enhance the capabilities as well as the network coverage of its industry-leading Network to Business (N2B) platform. These software agents are designed to capture revenue-related information that was previously unavailable from certain segments of the network and turns these “dark” areas of the network into revenue and profit-generating assets. The new software agents also allow customers to further leverage their investment in the XACCT platform. These agents leverage leading off-the-shelf hardware platforms, such as Sun-Solaris, offering a broad range of price-performance options and lower cost of ownership.

The PacketSight agents employ XACCT’s new NetStream Recognition Technology™ to capture exhaustive Quality of Service (QoS) metrics, as well as application and service-level information. Tier-1 carriers that already use XACCT’s N2B platform can seamlessly deploy the new agents to obtain total visibility into all parts of their networks and get a complete understanding of how customers use their networks and services. With the insight they gain from PacketSight, carriers can develop new high-margin, value-based services.

“We continue to expand the capabilities of our platform to meet the business needs of our growing customer base,” said Eric Gries, president and CEO of XACCT. “We are committed to helping our customers maximise their revenue and profits by offering solutions that provide the most comprehensive network and service usage information available today.”

"XACCT continues to expand its scope by adding service intelligence functionality to its platform, a much needed aspect of the service management space," said Sanjay Mewada, Director of Research with the Yankee Group. "The new PacketSight product not only enhances service providers' visibility into their networks, but also provides new and vital information about Quality of Service that had been very difficult to attain, until now."
