Good network management and security practices drive efficiency and productivity, and they also optimize return on investment. The integrated, easy-to-use Alcatel-Lucent OmniVista™ 2500 Network Management System (NMS) uniquely combines the full set of end-to-end network operations, security management and data center capabilities for large, diversified infrastructures within a single cohesive platform. The solution oversees daily network operations that encompass operational domains under virtualization deployment. It features centralized management, bulk operations, simplicity and scalability, and adheres to the essential network management functions of the FCAPS model (fault, configuration, accounting, performance, security).
The OmniVista 2500 NMS puts a full range of applications and tools in the hands of network managers so that they can meet the complex demands associated with new services, fast growing and evolving technologies such as data centers and virtualization, and constant security threats.
The OmniVista 2500 NMS suite of network management applications are designed to manage specific components of the entire network and are supported by supplemental application designed for specific network functions. The following is a component of the OmniVista 2500 NMS application suite.
The new OmniVista 2500 Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), a part of the OmniVista 2500 Network Management System, addresses network management constraints related to application virtualization and virtual machine mobility in the data center.
The OmniVista 2500 VMM provides an adaptive, agnostic framework that supports and interfaces with leading enterprise virtualization platforms from VMware and Citrix. The OmniVista 2500 VMM automates network infrastructure provisioning, eliminates configuration conflicts between virtual and physical networks, and increases the IT efficiency of day-to-day operations.
