STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/13 -- Tail-f Systems, the leading provider of multi-vendor configuration management and network automation software, today announced that Pulsecom has licensed Tail-f's NCS software to develop NetPulse EMS, Pulsecom's carrier-class Element Management System (EMS).
"The ability to offer a true carrier-class EMS platform is critical to the success of our SuperG family of Access and Network Interface Device (NID) products," says Paula DeCarlo, Director Pulsecom Engineering Operations. "Tail-f's NCS software is the backbone for Pulsecom's NetPulse EMS and has the advanced feature set necessary for Tier 1 carriers. The model-driven development approach allows us to rapidly add and modify management capabilities to meet our customers' evolving needs. In addition, northbound interfaces are standards-based for smooth integration with OSS/BSS platforms and automated provisioning enables consistent and accurate subscriber service turn-up."
