GatesAir and Tecom Group Strengthen Intraplex® IP Link with a Centralized Management Tool
NEBO provides superior monitoring, logging, and remote control for high-end GatesAir IP codecs
Cincinnati, OH, April 21, 2017
GatesAir, a global leader in wireless, over-the-air content delivery solutions for radio and TV broadcasters, joins forces with Tecom Group, an experienced software developer for broadcast & telecom industries, to equip its Intraplex® IP Link audio codecs with a centralized network management system.
GatesAir’s customers were looking for a reliable, external Network Management System to monitor and log performance of IP Codecs, remotely control & configure geographically distributed elements using IP Link’s built-in secure web and SNMP access, build performance reports, and customize alarm policies from one simple web interface. Tecom Group caters for these needs with NEBO, the company’s recently launched modular platform designed for efficient equipment management.
NEBO offers a holistic approach towards multivendor equipment monitoring and control enabling an efficient workflow infrastructure diagnosis from a single web interface. The platform comprises elements’ connectivity and availability verification, and ensures fault, performance, configuration and account management with an aim to enhance overall productivity and cost-effectiveness.
“We’re proud to add NMS capability to GatesAir Intraplex® IP Link codecs with our NEBO monitoring platform,” comments Alexander Kabanov, General Manager or Tecom Group, “We’ve put in years of hands-on experience in the cutting-edge broadcasting and telecom software development. Coupled with solid knowledge of equipment-specific procedures, we have created a handy tool that significantly eases the process of remote equipment control, enabling a real-time network diagnosis, speed troubleshooting, reduced costs and improved overall service delivery.”
“NEBO provides a reliable and cost-effective way for our customers to monitor and control network of IP Link codecs from a centralized server,” says Keyur Parikh, Director of GatesAir’s Intraplex Business Unit. “GatesAir is proud to partner with Tecom Group to leverage their extensive experience in developing advanced network management systems.”
Apart from basic network management software functionality, NEBO performs automatic identification and seamless connection of new devices (auto discovery), providing alert logging & analysis that offers comprehensive graphs and reports with an ability to create custom templates. NEBO’s vendor neutrality helps to leverage connectivity and control across all network resources. Flexible licensing options and a highly customizable user interface allows for the platform’s branding and localization so vendors can expand the scope of their product offering and deliver more business value.
Monitoring of unattended and geographically distributed sites is performed by a NEBO RC (remote controller) physically installed alongside with the controlled equipment. It communicates with all of the site elements via SNMP and non IP protocols to aggregate and transfer data to the network operations center thus providing for remote configuration and reducing operational costs.
The companies will be showcasing a joint solution at the upcoming NAB Show 2017 taking place from April 24 to 27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. To experience NEBO’s benefits in full, please contact Tecom Group representatives or visit the GatesAir booth #2613 to view a demo.
