Actix Viewpoint Delivers Web-Based Network Performance Intelligence System

Automated thin-client solution revolutionizes process of managing large test data volumes, speeding and easing the network engineering process

London - Actix, the leader in Network Status Management (NSM) for mobile operators, today announced the introduction of Actix Viewpoint, a web-based solution for the management and distribution of network performance engineering information. Actix Viewpoint has been designed to deliver operational efficiency and consistency to managing, analyzing and reporting network performance engineering data.

For carriers operating complex wireless networks, access to performance engineering information can be complicated and time consuming, typically forcing engineers to access multiple, disparate systems, which lack automation, visibility and integration.

Actix Viewpoint integrates multiple management systems, such as troubleshooting, network optimization, coverage reporting and application performance, to provide a single point of access with unified views of real-time and historical performance engineering information across the entire network. Accessible from anywhere within the enterprise, Viewpoint provides information that has been collected, processed and managed automatically by a central system, for use by engineering and corporate functions, easing the handling and management of large volumes of time-sensitive network test data.

“Actix Viewpoint is designed to fulfill two core benefits: improving the efficiency and reducing the operational expenditure involved in engineering the network. Automatic processing releases engineers’ time to focus on value-adding tasks, while making actionable information available sooner,” said Richard Kateley, Director of NSM Product Development.

“Viewpoint’s web-based user interface provides a common portal for engineers and technical teams, while also delivering real-time management information to non-technical business areas, such as marketing, business development and the C-suite. A dashboard-like view of high-level information about the network ensures timely access to relevant information on which to make commercial decisions. Typically such people would have to wade through a printed report to find any useful information, and now they can literally access the entire history of their network on a handheld PDA via the web in near real-time,” continues Kateley.

Viewpoint can be used for a wide variety of status audit and reporting applications and includes the following features:

• Automatic Server-based Data Pre-Processing
• Centralized Storage of Network Performance Data
• Integration with Network Configuration Data Sources
• Enterprise-wide Access to Shared Performance Engineering Information

Actix will be demonstrating Viewpoint publicly for the first time at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 11-14 February 2008.
