Intelliden delivers ground breaking step in network management by removing manual, error prone processes through zero touch, providing full visibility and control
Intelligent networking solutions provider, Intelliden Corporation, today announced that BT Global Solutions is using its Intelliden R-Series application to manage its BT Transform Service, which is now fully operational and ready for roll out. Intelliden is the industry’s first intelligent networking software solution, providing unparalleled functionality through an automated and intelligent approach to managing large, complex networks.
The BT Transform Service enables UK businesses to access a broad portfolio of voice, data, video services and applications via a broadband network from a single supplier. At its core, BT Transform is using the Intelliden R-Series solution, which enables networks to operate more intelligently by dynamically responding to business goals, automating network change management, optimizing network resources, streamlining processes and enforcing business policy in network operations. Instead of having to make manual network changes—and risk making errors that could block critical communications—Intelliden enables IT personnel to focus on more important network issues increasing, operational efficiency and reducing overall costs.
“When we were in the planning stages for BT Transform, we knew that it would be impossible to deliver the type of differentiated network services clients would want using current methods and approaches for managing the network. The complexity of the network would mean that if we had to rely on manual configuration, BT Transform would prove too expensive and too slow to make it commercially viable,” said Gordon Suttie, Vision and Strategy Manager, BT Global Solutions. “We needed a solution that would allow us to manage the network holistically and address the critical pain points in the network, and we found the answer with Intelliden R-Series. Intelliden’s software has allowed us to reduce the likelihood for error associated with manual processes, give us the visibility and control we require and allow us to implement change in shorter time frames. This type of functionality is a ground-breaking step forward for the industry. We believe the ability to automatically reconfigur
e a network will determine whether some telcos survive or not.”
BT’s Transform Service is the UK’s first information and communications technology (ICT) business platform based on Internet Protocol (IP) technology, and part of BT Global Solutions, BT's business services and solutions division. Working with Intelliden, BT has been able to realize its vision for BT Transform: to enable UK businesses to access a comprehensive range of ICT services from a single cost effective, integrated business platform.
The agility of the BT Transform platform, so called because it enables users to transform their businesses simply and cost-effectively, allows users to trial and deploy new applications and services via a "pay as you require" model, as and when there is a business requirement. Due to a combination of scaleable bandwidth capacity, flexible delivery and quality of service differentiation, the BT Transform service can seamlessly integrate any required new business processes, applications and services – such as CRM, content-hosting, storage, business video and managed VoIP –into clients’ existing network operations.
“We found a natural fit with BT Global Solutions, as we both shared the same fresh perspective on network management – that is, by creating a unified control plane across heterogeneous devices, networks could become more efficient, more cost effective and easier to manage” said Dale Hecht, CEO, Intelliden. “By abstracting the knowledge of every device and importing it into the Intelliden directory, we are able to automate configuration requirements, dramatically reduce costs and inefficiencies and eliminate errors through zero touch and an holistic view.”
By abstracting the knowledge of every device and importing it into the Intelliden directory, Intelliden is able to automate configuration requirements, dramatically reduce costs and inefficiencies. This business driven approach is known as Intelligent Networking.
As the industry’s first Intelligent Networking software solution, Intelliden is not only able to prevent manual errors, but can also roll back to an earlier configuration within a few keystrokes, saving both valuable time and money. Through the use of its knowledge base, Intelliden learns about all of the versions of every device, learning the unique features of every level of every operating system on the network. Its intelligent use of XML Schema Definition (XSD) means that all commands are validated before they are actually entered into the network. Furthermore, the command line interface for all of the devices is presented as a common GUI interface, with the same look and feel for every device, ensuring conformance across the network.
BT is amongst several industry-leading customers in key market segments – including financial services, defense, telecommunications and government – that are using Intelliden technology to enable their managed services clients to fully exploit their IP network capabilities, and to cost effectively deploy applications to meet their business imperatives both today and tomorrow. Intelliden has more than 30 patents pending on its software solutions.
