PacketLight LightWatchTM multi-platform Java-based network management system (NMS) is an essential tool for effectively managing, configuring, and monitoring fiber optic networks.
PacketLight’s NMS provides comprehensive visibility and control over network infrastructure, enabling administrators to ensure optimal network performance, security, and reliability. The NMS enables administrators to monitor the equipment on the network, track traffic, detect and resolve issues, and configure network devices remotely.
The system collects and analyzes network data, and generates valuable insights and reports that are central in decision-making and troubleshooting. By centralizing network management tasks and automating routine processes, the NMS streamlines operations, enhances efficiency, and reduces downtime. It serves as a critical component in maintaining a robust and resilient network infrastructure in today's mission-critical landscape.
The system provides full fault, configuration, accounting, performance, security (FCAPS) functionality and is compliant with telecommunications management network (TMN) standards.
LightWatch uses the MySQLTM database, and is built with modular client pay-as-you-grow offerings, scalable to 500 network elements and 20 clients.
