MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cariden Technologies, Inc., the leader in network planning, design, and traffic management solutions, announced today the availability of MATE Live, a solution that combines predictive network analytics with easy access to current and historical data for use in operational applications, such as health maintenance and congestion mitigation.
MATE Live extends Cariden's MATE portfolio of products, which includes MATE Design for planning and traffic management, and MATE Collector for automated and continuous discovery of network data for maintaining the world's most complex networks. MATE Live builds upon MATE Collector's proven efficiency at discovering and assimilating critical network information.
Cariden helps customers realize financial returns at many times the original investment by providing the most flexible and rapid solutions in the industry for planning, engineering, operations, peering, and business management. In particular, MATE Live sharply reduces outage times by providing greater insight into the root causes of network congestion.
"The introduction of MATE Live greatly improves our network visibility," said Dorian Kim, Vice President of IP Engineering at NTT America. "We have used the MATE portfolio extensively for planning, engineering, and operations tasks, and we'll now be able to monitor network utilization, improve uptime, perform future trending analysis, and ensure network health, all from a single application. MATE Live is so intuitive yet expansive in its functionality that NTT Communications plans to use it in multiple departments within our technical operations."
In addition to supporting these key operational requirements, MATE Live also provides the following groups with additional cost-saving services:
- Planners--develops trending reports used by MATE Design for determining future needs, such as site-to-site traffic trends per class of service
- Designers and Engineers--determines whether MPLS paths are routed optimally over time and which events cause them to reroute
- Peering Coordinators--monitors priority peers and their growth, while verifying traffic is balanced
- Business Managers--determines the impact of new services per market or per site
"The development of MATE Live was driven by our customers, who needed operational and business analytics. Cariden has a rich history of collecting in-depth network data, and we were pleased to develop MATE Live in conjunction with customers such as NTT Communications to provide easy and powerful access to that information," said Arman Maghbouleh, President of Cariden Technologies. "MATE Live allows our customers to interactively access current and historical data and to derive actionable intelligence from the network."
"Maintenance is a never-ending process--between backbone and service maintenance, the pressure on operations departments is very high," said Sarah Wallace, Analyst at Heavy Reading. "With telecom and cable customers demanding increasingly stringent service level agreements, and further profits at stake in inter-provider peering, service providers have to be more nimble with more complex data than ever before in order to stay competitive. Platforms such as the MATE portfolio, and applications such as MATE Live in particular, can play key roles in how providers address their time-critical management needs."
Along with MATE Live, Cariden announced--as of the 5.2 release of the MATE portfolio--new features for MATE Design and MATE Collector. All products are available now.
