Asce Networks Announces NeuTrans 3.1

28th Nov. 2001

New software version of NeuTrans supports Metropolitan Ethernet Services; New IP-Sec based VPN services and Customer Self-Provisioning.

GAITHERSBURG, MD,, November 28, 2001 Asce Networks, Inc., a leading provider of mission-critical e-Business infrastructures, today announced a series of significant enhancements to its award winning NeuTrans' software.

In addition to existing support for Layer 3 VPNs using MPLS, QoS and security management, NeuTrans 3.1 adds support for Layer 2 services using MPLS and VLANs, Layer 3 services using IPSec and multi-network VPNs. This gives service providers a single platform to automate the management of a very broad range of network features to deliver real-time, dynamic services.

NeuTrans 3.1 features a series of web interfaces and a Java toolkit that network operators can use to create web portals to enable customer self-provisioning. It also includes seamless integration with InfoVista to deliver one-touch activation and assurance of VPNs and other services.

Bob Collins, CEO of Asce Networks,Inc. commented, "We are delighted to announce this important new version of NeuTrans. It demonstrates our strategic commitment to building an automated, intelligent platform to help network operators address the real challenges of managing large-scale, multi-vendor environments to accelerate the deployment of services."

The applications of the new release include:

Metro Ethernet Services

Many Service Providers are embracing Ethernet as the de facto emerging standard for metro data services. Metro Ethernet is attractive as both the Service Provider and the customer benefit from lower prices than traditional TDM services, and the technology is familiar, proven and robust, and is ideally suited to common applications like Ethernet LAN Interconnect.

The two main network functions that need to be managed or activated to deliver services are VLAN configuration and Layer 2 MPLS VPN management. NeuTrans 3.1 supports the ability to configure these features on Cisco CatOS, Juniper and Riverstone equipment, with more vendors to be announced in 2002. The new product supports the L2 MPLS management frameworks in the Martini, Lasserre and Kompella drafts from the IETF.

IPSec and Multi-network VPN Management

IP Sec -This addition gives service providers a wider choice of technologies to choose from when providing VPN services: with this release of the product, providers can now offer both provider-provisioned IP Sec and MPLS VPNs from the same console. IPSec VPNs create encrypted and authenticated IP tunnels from site to site across an IP network.

Multi-network VPN Management -Large service providers often have several geographically disparate networks, each of which normally has their own separate, autonomous routing area. Using the multi-network VPN management capability, all of these autonomous systems can be managed from a single point to deliver end-to-end services. This means that the service provider is able to offer large multinational enterprise customers a cross-border service offering but with a consistent service level, and a single reporting and billing centre.

Customer Web Interface and Java Toolkit

These features enable service providers to offer their customers self-provisioning web interfaces, to allow their enterprise customers to order, view and amend a range of services sold to them without manual intervention by the provider. The interface can be optimised for web self-management or centralised workflow provisioning, for example, call centre usage.

The interface can be easily re-branded by the service provider for additional marketing impact, to be sold as proprietary tool. The interface works in concert with the operator profile feature, so that the service provider can delimit the service settings that their customer is able to alter, so network and service integrity is assured.

The toolkit also provides the ability to create interfaces that link with other OSS platforms, so that data from billing, fault or performance measurement software can also be shown together.

Enhanced, flexible multi-vendor support

In 3.1, there are three changes to the product to deliver a broader range of device control functions: New Device Drivers -NeuTrans 3.1 supports a driver for Cisco Layer 2 devices running CatOS in addition to existing drivers.

Enhancements to existing Device Drivers -Significant enhancements are available in the drivers for Cisco IOS, Juniper, Riverstone and Unisphere to deliver the new Layer 2 and 3 MPLS, VLAN and IPSec management functionality described above.

Custom management components -- Customers are increasingly demanding a single control platform that automates all aspects of network configuration -- either for administrative tasks or for service activation. NeuTrans 3.1 addresses this requirement by allowing customized management components to be created to manage specific network device features through the NeuTrans platform. In effect, this means that Asce Networks can add automated support for new features and devices more quickly than before, and customers benefit through not having to deploy multiple management systems to control their network.

SLA Management for VPNs

When Asce Networks is being used to manage VPNs, the new realease can configure the network so that the appropriate SLA tests are switched on between specific sites on the VPNs. NeuTrans can automatically share this information with InfoVista so that it can report on the performance of the services. The reports that are generated appear as part of the Asce Networks User Interface in real-time.

Pricing and availability

NeuTrans 3.1 will be available to customers from Q1, 2002. The product is configured in a modular fashion, and pricing of the product is dependent on the modules purchased.
