At ANGA COM in Cologne, Germany, Teleste will highlight its CATVisor Argus network management solution for proactive in network maintenance. Supporting features such as SmartRIS, Argus is intended to enable operators to solve ingress issues before they affect service quality.
The solution's software is designed to allow operators to "add" intelligence to traditional network devices in order to monitor them and ensure that they keep operating as specified.
To target network problems before they affect service quality, the system is designed to allow setting device-specific thresholds and alerting relating to conditions that may degenerate system performance and cause device failures in the future.
The latest version of Argus also introduces SmartRIS, an automatic application within the Argus server. Designed to reduce the need for manual monitoring work, SmartRIS is used to detect sources of ingress in networks with the help of Teleste's intelligent optical nodes. Once an ingress source is located, SmartRIS isolates it from the network by means of ingress switches.
Argus is also designed to support third-party products, including Maxnet II modules from ATX Networks.
