Union Switch & Signal Selects NimBUS Service-Level Management Product

1/10/2005 - Privately held Nimsoft, Inc. announced that Union Switch & Signal Inc. (US&S), a leader in the design, manufacture and service of signaling, automation and control equipment and systems for the railroad and mass transit industries worldwide, has selected the NimBUS service-level management product to achieve a central point of infrastructure control for maximum quality of service.

“At US&S, we’re responsible for governing and executing business critical functions such as brake assurance, over-speed detection and door controls; therefore continuous network access is imperative to safely and efficiently process our driver-less operations,” said Russ White, Vice President, Automation and Information Systems, at US&S. “During our rigorous evaluation testing, the Nimsoft’s NimBUS product demonstrated to us that its superior network monitoring capabilities will ensure that US&S continues to provide impeccable quality of service to all of its end-users.”

Based in Pittsburgh, PA, US&S serves all of the Class I freight railroads, passenger railroads, and numerous regional and short line railroads in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, as well as rail-based transit operators around the world. Providing quality of service is necessary for the vital timing needed to keep the transportation systems on-line and on-track.

With the implementation of the NimBUS service level management solution, US&S can verify round-the-clock network connectivity to devices and application services, revealing accessibility and network latency and performance. Additionally, the solution auto-discovers network interfaces, monitors interface traffic and calculates bandwidth utilization.

“More and more successful enterprises like US&S have realized that network transparency is key to running the IT environment like a business, and anticipate outages before they affect end-users,” said Gary Read, President of Nimsoft, Inc. “Helping organizations achieve that goal, our NimBUS solution provides service views to enable individuals at all levels of the business to gain a rapid insight into how critical systems and applications are performing.”
