Nakina Systems Joins Juniper Networks J-Partner Solutions Alliance Program

    Nakina's Network OS(TM) Provides Carrier Grade Management System to Help
Service Providers Accelerate Deployments of Juniper Multiplay Networks

    DALLAS, November 5 /CNW/ - Nakina Systems today announced that it has
joined Juniper Networks J-Partner Program as an OSS and Network Management
Service Provider Solutions Alliances partner. The roll out of new services
over converged Carrier Ethernet and IP/MPLS-based networks is driving service
providers to adopt a single Network Operating System (NOS) capable of managing
multiple technologies from many different equipment vendors. Nakina is
delivering on that vision. Nakina's Network OS(TM) management solution will
provide Juniper's service provider customers worldwide with a carrier-grade,
multi-vendor, multi-technology network management solution.

    Nakina was selected by Juniper because of its proven customer traction
and its best-in-class multi-technology functionality and business and
technical leadership. Juniper's J-Partner Network Management Alliance Program
is designed to encourage the development of applications that deliver robust,
flexible and interoperable network management solutions to enable rapid
service deployment and operational efficiencies that lower the cost of service
provider operations.

    "We share a common vision with Nakina to provide our customers with
high-performance network equipment and management solutions," said Doug
Erickson, director of worldwide alliance and channel development at Juniper
Networks. "Our service provider customers are looking to accelerate the
expansion of next-generation, Carrier Ethernet and multiplay services. With
Nakina's management solution, they can rapidly deploy and manage the
increasing complexity of their multi-technology networks while facilitating
rapid integration of Juniper network elements into their existing back office

    Nakina's software helps service providers expedite new services roll outs
while improving the efficiency and cost structure of their operations. As a
single point of integration, the Nakina Network OS(TM) platform reduces the
'OSS Integration Tax' by rationalizing the number of management systems
required. Scaling to manage tens of thousands of network elements, Nakina's
flexible network and element management solution supports full Fault,
Configuration, Accounting, Performance and Security (FCAPS) functionality
across legacy and next-generation networks.

    "Telecom operators face the challenges of integrating heterogeneous OSS
applications and systems with equipment across many different technologies,"
says Peter Mottishaw, senior analyst for OSS Observer. "A common,
standards-based platform that provides a single point of integration
northbound into higher level back office systems and southbound into the
network elements holds the potential to significantly reduce OSS integration,
maintenance and staff training costs for service providers."

    "Leading OSS software vendors and equipment vendors like Juniper are
joining the growing Nakina 'Network OS-ready' ecosystem of suppliers," said
Mary O'Neill, vice president of market development at Nakina Systems. "They
benefit from a common set of accurate network information and management
functionality that can be easily extended to support their unique features
that differentiate their products from competitors. By leveraging
new-generation OSS concepts with open industry standards and interfaces such
as MTOSI, XML and NETCONF, Nakina's support for Juniper solutions accelerates
the deployment of new services and simplifies the management of network
infrastructure versus legacy routing and switching solutions. As the
industry's only truly vendor-independent, off-the-shelf management platform,
our product has been proven in live deployments with some of the world's
largest service providers, giving us at least a three year lead-time over
competitive solutions."

    The Nakina Network OS(TM) product managing Juniper Networks' products is
available today and will be showcased managing Juniper's MX-series Ethernet
Services Routers in live demonstrations on Nakina's booth 208 at this year's
TM Forum Management World Americas show in Dallas, Texas, November 4-8, 2007.
