Next-Generation NeuralStar(R) 5 Supports Sun Solaris OE/Oracle

Advanced Version of Network Management Framework Offers Multi-Platform Choices



Apr 25, 2001, 01:00 ET from Ai Metrix, Inc.

    EL DORADO HILLS, Calif., April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Ai Metrix, Inc., the
 technology leader in network management software, announced today that
 NeuralStar(R) 5 supports Sun Microsystems Inc. Solaris(TM) Operating
 Environment (OE)/Oracle Database.  This is an evolutionary enhancement that
 extends the reach of NeuralStar well into carrier-class, mission-critical
 telecom networks.
     According to Larry Goldman, Director of Service Fulfillment OSS research
 at RHK, "Sun Solaris and Oracle are the most commonly deployed environment for
 telecom OSS.  Support for Sun and Oracle significantly expands the available
 market for Ai Metrix NeuralStar."
     "More than 80 percent of the Internet backbone traffic and 15 of the
 top 20 service providers run on Sun Solaris systems.  This Internet expertise,
 combined with innovative, reliable end-to-end solutions, makes Sun an ideal
 telecom partner for Ai Metrix," said Pete Oliver, Ai Metrix President and CEO.
     The Solaris 8 Operating Environment software is now the highest ranked
 UNIX(R) operating system according to the latest survey from D.H. Brown, a
 widely recognized leading research and consulting firm.  The study, which
 evaluated five leading UNIX-based operating systems and their effectiveness in
 the commercial server arena, positioned the Solaris 8 OE as capturing the
 overall lead.
     NeuralStar has been deployed globally for over two years, managing complex
 broadband networks.  Client networks run the gamut, from cable-modems, ADSL,
 inter-city broadband, to one of the largest all-optical networks in
 North America.  NeuralStar reached new heights of scalability when deployed by
 the U.S. Government to provide service assurance functions for the global
 Department of Defense Network Management System.
     The object-oriented, distributed architecture of NeuralStar has been
 chosen by clients for the very toughest of network management jobs.
 NeuralStar has excelled in applications when the problems associated with
 complex, heterogeneous, cross-enterprise networks overwhelm traditional OSS
 platforms.
     NeuralStar 5 is immediately available.
