PLEASANTON, CA: WebNMS, a provider of multi-vendor network management and LP Technologies, a provider of analysis, monitoring and management systems, partner to extend unified network management over satellite networks by creating an end to end satellite network solution– Symphony Satellite Manager. Through this solution, satellite network operators can unify their network operations, lower operational costs and simplify service automation.

The solution combines LP Technologies’ spectrum management capabilities with satellite access, transmission equipment control, monitoring and visualization. WebNMS adds satellite management to its existing Carrier Ethernet and MPLS solutions. It integrates LP Technologies’ LPT-ASM automatic spectrum manager and 3000R remote spectrum analyzer into multi vendor network and service management. The LPT-ASM software monitors and analyzes data collected from spectrum analyzer systems.

“Our Symphony Orchestration Platform unifies multi-vendor network management and orchestrates end-to-end services.  By integrating with LP Technologies, we can now offer a comprehensive solution for satellite networks, including the requisite spectrum management capabilities,” says Darryl Stork, Regional Director, WebNMS.

The new solution comprises of service inventory, provisioning, activation, performance and configuration management. Further it simplifies incorporation of satellite networks with terrestrial network services. Unlike traditional ways of managing satellite networks, the new solution will reduce the operational costs through unification of disparate management silos.

 “Satellite operators look to LP Technologies for cost-effective solutions that reliably manage their spectrum, a critical resource that must be efficiently utilized”, says Micky Mukalay, Director of Business Development at LP Technologies. “Our partnership with WebNMS simplifies the inherent complexity of managing satellite networks, lowering their TCO and increasing network efficiency.
