Carrier's Carrier and Bandwidth Provider Deploys Centina Systems NetOmnia™ to Proactively Resolve Customer Issues and Monitor Critical Network Infrastructure

Indiana Fiber Network of Indianapolis, Indiana Deploys Leading Edge Technology to Ensure the Highest Level of Customer Satisfaction and Network Reliability

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwire - May 24, 2010) -  Indiana Fiber Network today announced the successful implementation of NetOmnia™, a customer-centric network and service assurance solution from Centina Systems, Inc. 

Jim Wininger, IFN Manager of Network Operations, commented, "The underlying technology of NetOmnia™ brought many advantages to the users. It has an intuitive web2.0 interface that speeds troubleshooting and does not require a programmer or a full time Network Administrator to maintain and customize it. Many of the systems we looked at would take months of integration before we could start using the system. With NetOmnia, we were able to deploy the system and start monitoring our entire network in a week. We can install a new node or new product in the network, and be managing it in a fraction of the time of other systems. After our evaluation of several systems on the market, we determined NetOmnia™ is the best product and we have not been disappointed."

Anand Gonuguntla, CEO for Centina Systems, said, "IFN's challenges are not unique. Many service providers are challenged with deploying a solution that will reduce network downtime as well as the cost of operations. Because NetOmnia™ was built from the ground-up on the latest technologies, Centina Systems has been able to design a solution that seamlessly integrates fault and performance management and simplifies ongoing configuration and customization. We are very happy to add IFN to Centina's growing list of customers."
