management by Axia's trained, certified experts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,
ensuring the customer's network achieves optimum performance and maximum
uptime.
    Axia President Geoff Thompson said, "Axia NetManage(TM) and Axia
NetMonitor(TM) are the next phase in the development of our value-added
services portfolio. Both solutions leverage Axia's ongoing experience managing
and monitoring the Alberta SuperNet." Mr. Thompson added, "By adding Axia
NetManage(TM) and Axia NetMonitor(TM) to our portfolio, we can provide
organizations access to the same level of network performance reliability that
has made the Alberta SuperNet a success."
    Axia NetManage(TM) gives organizations with distributed networks all the
advantages of a single point of contact, network management and performance
accountability. It also identifies and resolves issues as they arise,
providing guaranteed, seamless, worry-free network performance. Axia's 24/7
Network Operations Centre professionals become an extension of the customer's
IT department, allowing organizations to enjoy the benefits of Axia's
experienced and reliable team without incurring the cost of having comparable
staff in-house.
    Axia NetMonitor(TM) is a 24/7 network monitoring service that provides
enterprise customers with round the clock monitoring and instant notification
of any critical network performance issues, enabling them to immediately
address and resolve problems. Axia's Network Operations Centre professionals
work hand-in-hand with the customer's IT department to facilitate efficient
delivery of the service, providing peace of mind that their network is being
monitored by certified experts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
    These services can be used to leverage the reach of the Alberta SuperNet
resulting in an end-to-end network management solution and can also easily be
adapted to any type of network allowing all customers to benefit from Axia's
network management expertise and capabilities. The Alberta SuperNet is a
state-of-the-art Internet Protocol ("IP") Real Broadband(TM) network linking
429 communities and directly connecting more than 4,200 sites across Alberta.
