Alcatel has announced enhancements to its OmniVista network management product, including the ability for network managers to configure and troubleshoot a network with the click of a button.
The OneTouch enhancement to OmniVista works with the Alcatel operating system to help reduce the time needed for repetitious network administration tasks.
The features are designed to enhance secure access with OneTouch control for switch administration policies.
A resource manager tool provides backup and restore capabilities for software images and configuration files. A trap responder tool automatically notifies IT personnel of network problems and triggers automatic actions to address problems. The locator feature allows network managers to find hostile network elements and can find network-attached hosts from third-party suppliers.
OmniVista has already begun shipping and prices start at $3,995 per licence, plus an additional $1,000 per licence for Secure Access.
FineGround Networks also announced an appliance to deliver its Performance Suite software for boosting web application performance.
The Velocity appliance will boost e-mail and collaboration web application performance to branch offices connected by wide-area networks by up to 300%.
