SiliconRepublic writes that Data Edge, a firm that specialises in network performance optimisation, has been awarded a EUR200,000 (USD256,350) contract by Ireland’s E-net to help it improve the performance management of its metro area networks (MANs) across the Republic. E-net is responsible for managing fibre-optic MANs in 94 locations across Ireland with a network footprint spanning over 1,000km. Its customers include service providers such as UPC, Vodafone, BT and Imagine. Under the contract, Data Edge is installing its proprietary CA Infrastructure Management (IM) software to enable e-net to better identify unexpected peaks and troughs in utilisation, improve quality of service (QoS) and allow the company to plan for future enhancements by assessing loading demands on the network. Commenting on the development, E-net chief technical officer Thomas Grant said: ‘With this investment in place, we expect much better visibility of all monitored interfaces and links so that we can focus our troubleshooting, reduce our mean time to repair and manage a much larger infrastructure estate without increasing our management costs.’
