Aircell Selects GenerationE

November 14, 2007 - Selects generationE as service management provider

Together with generationE, Aircell will supplement its current network monitoring and management capabilities on the company’s cutting-edge satellite and air-to-ground broadband cellular networks. Trending and demand forecasting of its cellular network will be further optimized with new capabilities provided by generationE, as well as enhancements to its data center monitoring.

“At Aircell, we measure success on both the reliability of our systems and cost of services,” explained Mark Malosh, Vice President of Operations at Aircell. “We are confident that our partnership with generationE will help achieve both of these goals by helping us manage and monitor the performance of our expanding network environment.”

The software, IBM Tivoli Netcool Performance Manager, will be used to manage Aircell’s terrestrial network of cell sites and its data centers, which provide fault tolerance and load-balancing capabilities to the Aircell network infrastructure. The software will report critical metrics such as latency measurements, and allow Aircell to conduct root cause analysis to quickly isolate, analyze and resolve network problems.

“We are excited about this partnership and look forward to leveraging the IBM software to help optimize our network,” explained Mark Malosh.
