NetACE is a vendor-agnostic solution that allows unified monitoring and control over a multi-vendor network is global multi-site topology. NetACE has a built-in automated system that discovers all network elements and the topology that connects them. Once the system topology is discovered, the system allows the operation or upper layer management systems to monitor and control any element in the system regardless of equipment vendor. The communication uses standard management protocols adapted to the protocol that the specific equipment supports. A high-level overview of the entire network allows NetACE to define alternative routes in case of fault, to quickly and without errors rollout a new service across the network, and to immediately replace settings for a faulty component.
NetACE includes a standard REST API that allows upper layer management systems to benefit from overview and control of the entire network. The same interface can be used by optimization servers in order to view network resources and perform changes needed in the network elements for network optimization.
