18 July 2001, - UK network management specialist Chevin has forged a distribution agreement with Align Communications to increase the penetration of its suite of network management products in the US. Under the terms of the agreement Align Communications will distribute Chevin’s total visibility network management system, TeVISTA. Established as one of the US’ leading networking specialists with a reputable customer base, Align is recognised for its expertise in network design, management, infrastructure build out and integration and will provide Chevin with a more extensive reach into the US network management market. Chevin and Align will continue to strengthen their relationship with further ongoing joint marketing activities.

“I am very excited about the deal we have with Align,” said John Earley, CEO, Chevin. “Meeting Align’s stringent requirements for new technology products is tough and the company has a track record of dealing only with best of breed products from vendors that include Cisco, Microsoft, Citrix, and Comapq. TeVISTA represents a powerful new dimension in the network management space and we need partners with the quality and credibility of Align to underline our success.”

“Align’s three phases of Total Project Management; strategic analysis & design, implementation & deployment, and support, is now strengthened with the addition of Chevin’s network management tools,” said Bob Hart, Director of Network Integration Services at Align Communications. “We use state-of-the-art tools to design, manage and successfully complete any assignment we undertake. Our customers depend on us to provide solutions that are easy, proactive, and reliable. TeVISTA, Chevin’s network management software, allows us to do that, and provide a level of support that would otherwise require multiple products to implement.”

TeVISTA is designed to provide a fully detailed view of network performance, characteristics that traditional monitoring tools using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) are unable to access. TeVISTA is extraordinary because it provides total visibility of everything on a network in real time by gathering information from the ‘wire’ without relying on polling devices on the network. By using this intelligent method of seeking information, TeVISTA is able to provide knowledge about critical features of network activity, which can affect network performance such as, bandwidth utilisation, number of broadcasts and multicasts, number of conversations taking place on the network and the number of protocols being used.
