Kentrox®, Inc., an innovator of intelligent site monitoring,
management, and control solutions, announces immediate availability of
the communications management solution for enhanced site management.
Subscribers are demanding reliable wireless coverage from virtually
anywhere, but communications quality is often reduced in high usage/high
demand areas. Understanding whether systems are running effectively and
efficiently is critical.
The Kentrox communications management solution provides the applications
needed to help service providers and tower operators manage their
communications network without a site visit and provide proactive
warnings when issues may occur. The applications use the Optima
Management System® and the Remote suite of products to
monitor the sites by providing the following:
Distributed antenna systems (DAS) management: collects alarms and key
performance indicators (KPIs) to verify the operational status of DAS
Microwave management: constantly monitors microwave systems including
equipment performance, health, communications, and transmissions
Each packaged solution includes the information, reports, measurements,
network elements, alarms, and sensors/controllers that are needed for
each application. Optima Live View shows the per site status overview of
the specific application’s alarms and KPIs. It provides auto-refresh and
single click links to predefined reports, alarms, analysis, and
controls. The standardized reports are context sensitive and provide a
one click zoom to the selected alarms or KPIs to better understand site
and equipment status.
“Continuous and quality wireless coverage has become expected by
wireless subscribers today, and understanding the communications
network, without a site visit, is a tower operator and service
provider’s challenge,” states Eric Swanson, Westell Director of Product
Management. “The communications management solution provides
cost-effective and proactive monitoring and management of DAS and
microwave systems remotely. The reporting and trending capabilities help
maximize site efficiency while improving network reliability and
