Network management & engineering and rollout services powered by Infosim®
Würzburg/Austin/Singapore, April 28th, 2020
1&1 Versatel GmbH, one of the market leaders in B2B telecommunications, and leading German software manufacturer Infosim® GmbH & Co. KG have entered into a strategic partnership for the delivery, implementation and future support of the StableNet® unified network and services management platform at 1&1 Versatel. StableNet® by Infosim® will provide assistance in network monitoring, configuration and capacity planning. The extent of the relationship will intensify in pre-planned phases. While completion of phase one is planned for Q4 2020, further phases will entail new features which will be cooperatively defined and developed.
With one of the biggest and most powerful fiber networks in Germany, 1&1 Versatel is part of the United Internet Group and already serves more than 50,000 business customers. In addition to using StableNet® as a vendor- and technology-independent network monitoring tool, future cooperation will entail the incorporation of capacity planning, strategic network management, trend analysis and the standardized rollout of business services. With this partnership, 1&1 Versatel takes an important step towards network automation and standardization while Infosim® furthers its commitment to the Telco industry as a reliable and trusted partner for a wide array of unified network and services management solutions.
1&1 Versatel and Infosim® GmbH & Co. KG are convinced that their alliance will achieve a historic milestone in regards to efficiency, service quality and scalability.
Infosim® develops and markets StableNet®, the leading unified network and services management platform with a 4-in-1 solution that combines Inventory, Configuration, Fault, and Performance Management. It is available in two versions: Telco (for Telecom Operators and ISPs) and Enterprise (for IT and Managed Service Providers). Given the many operational and technical challenges of managing distributed and mission-critical IT infrastructures, StableNet® is the vendor-independent solution in today’s multi-vendor environment.

StableNet will support 1&1 Versatel in automating and monitoring their network and corresponding business processes, thus further increasing the availability and cost efficiency of network operations.“
“Our fiber optic network is at the heart of 1&1 Versatel – on this basis, we implement high-performance networking solutions for our customers. With the Infosim® product StableNet® , we are introducing a state-of-the-art monitoring system with which we can further optimize our network and service operations and continuously improve the quality of our services.”
Without any doubt, multi-faceted automation tasks cannot be uniformally covered with a “one size fits it all” solution. In other words, each firm must establish focused priorities and functional compromises in order to develop the foundation for a successful network automation solution.
We face three primary types of competition, for various possible customers in the NMS arena. The customer types range from enterprises that need to secure the health of their network for production purposes to Telcos that require service assurance for the network services that they provide to their clients, and anything in-between.
As it has been nearly a year since Dr. David Toumajian first joined Infosim® as the Director of Marketing, we wanted to ask him a few questions about his experience at the company and some of the key initiatives that the marketing department has been working on during that time.
