Nakina Systems provides products that enable service providers to more quickly and cost effectively deliver new services in a multi-vendor network infrastructure – reducing time to revenue for new service deployments.
That’s why Nakina solutions are deployed in daily use to
manage critical telecom network infrastructure in over twenty four
countries around the world.
Nakina's Network Integrity™ solutions bridge the gap between "proven in the lab" and "ready for national and global rollout." Our ultimate objective is to enable service providers to roll out complex new infrastructure – Ethernet, IMS, optical, and wireless – without operational obstacles and expensive manual processes that slow deployment.
The Nakina Network Integrity™ solutions can be deployed in various rollout stages to enable scaling of services. Another benefit of using the Nakina solution is that you can choose to license just the applications of interest by deploying the applications that address particular pain points at various stages of service deployment. The following is the actual Rollout in a Tier One Service provider:
By introducing Nakina Network Integrity™ solutions to manage network infrastructure, network operators achieve four key benefits:
The Nakina NI-Guardian security applications allow security administrators to easily enforce strong security policies across the network. The Nakina NI-Guardian enables security administrators to eliminate shared passwords (common today) by creating unique user credentials for all network operations staff and provides centralized logging of all network activity enabling a security audit trail.
As new technology becomes available, a Nakina deployment only requires one software adapter (device driver) to handle the vendor-specific communications to the network element. This adaptation layer allows the Nakina solution to interface into any vendor’s equipment. Adapters can be rapidly developed and hot deployed with no management system downtime. Nakina also provides an Adapter SDK to facilitate the rapid adapter development, configuration, and deployment of interfaces.
Once the integration between the Nakina NI-Collector solution and your inventory and provisioning system in the OSS layer is complete – you’re done. Gone are the days of having a $3M+ integration effort anytime you need to introduce a new vendor’s technology.
By automating all the key work processes, such as configuration of network elements, backup and restore of critical NE software, pre-upgrade network audits of standing conditions, automated software upgrades, etc., this eliminates the manual and error-prone scripting tools that have led to operational inefficiencies in the past. All applications apply consistently across any number of different vendors’ element types.
Gold Standard Parameter Auditing for
next gen infrastructure and services
Next generation services run on next generation network infrastructure, and in some cases it’s clear that the accompanying software tools have a long way to go to catch up. A simple example: during roll out of a nation-wide, IMS-based service, software will often need upgrading as is common in the early stages of a product’s life-cycle. The upgrade process is painstaking and requires auditing each element before an upgrade is performed, to determine the "upgrade readiness" of each element. Using the Nakina NI-Controller, instead of manual audits, the whole process is automated, substantively accelerating the roll-out schedule.
Nakina NI-Controller is a sophisticated multi-vendor, multi-domain application that provides automated, real-time network configuration, reconciliation and fine tuning of network parameters. It reduces human errors and improves operational efficiency by dynamically finding discrepancies between network inventory systems and the actual discovered parameters in multi-vendor, legacy and next-generation telecommunications networks.
Security administrators responsible for large service provider
networks face impossible obstacles when using manual techniques
to manage passwords and access privileges for network operations
Nakina's Nakina NI-Guardian applications take access security to a new level by extending enterprise identity and access management capabilities to the traffic-bearing network elements of a telecom network. Benefits include:
