AudioCodes Unveils Element Management System

10/9/2002 - AudioCodes a leading provider of Voice over Packet technologies and systems, announced the launch of the AudioCoded Element Management System (EMS), dedicated to managing AudioCodes' Mediant , Stretto and MediaPackTM media gateway platforms. The web-based EMS is designed to simplify operations, provide easy-to-use interfaces and integrate smoothly into the overall operations of a carrier-class packet voice network.

"The AudioCoded EMS effectively rounds out AudioCodes media gateway system offerings," said Jeremy Duke, principal analyst with Synergy Research Group. "By eliminating the need to jump between a variety of management systems in deploying different sized media gateway platforms and other network elements, network equipment providers and system integrators can offer service providers a seamless solution that can more effectively monitor network performance, giving the service provider a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

"The AudioCoded EMS offers a robust set of capabilities such as fault, configuration, alarm, performance, and security (FCAPS) management with a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). When combined with AudioCodes' Mediant, Stretto and MediaPack product offerings, the EMS addresses diverse POP and enterprise sizes by managing media gateways that range from a few analog lines to 720 E1s or T1s per frame.

"This announcement is part of AudioCodes' new initiative to provide a comprehensive EMS platform that can be easily integrated with network equipment providers and system integrator partners worldwide," said Ben Rabinowitz, vice president of AudioCodes. "The EMS provides a management solution that allows the end user to exploit the rich feature set provided by AudioCodes' media gateways.

The open, standards-based AudioCoded EMS solution provides integrated GUI, JAVA RMI and SNMP interfaces to enable integration into NEP and system integrator's network management systems. In addition, by supporting multiple languages, the AudioCoded EMS can be deployed globally.

AudioCodes is delivering the EMS system to customers this quarter and expects to be shipping production quantities in the first quarter of 2003.
