Cisco and IBM

Cisco and IBM provide fault-management solutions
Cisco and IBM announced an expansion of their existing strategic alliance to deliver telecommunications service assurance and fault-management solutions. Cisco will introduce a service-management solution that combines Cisco Active Network Abstraction (ANA) technology with the IBM Tivoli software.

Using the Cisco ANA platform mediation capabilities and IBM Tivoli technology, the Cisco Assurance Management Solution will help service provider customers change and evolve network devices and configurations without having to change their service management and operations support systems applications.

The Cisco ANA is designed to be interoperable with IBM Tivoli software, including Tivoli Netcool/Impact and Tivoli Business Service Manager.
