FNT Software and Infosim® Expand Coverage of their Network Management Partnership
Stablenet® by Infosim® and FNT Dramatically Speed up Time to Implement the Infrastructure Management Solution
Parsippany, NJ & Austin, TX – June 17th, 2020
FNT Software, a leading provider of software solutions for the integrated management of data center infrastructures, and Infosim®, a leader in unified service platforms today announced a formal geographic expansion to their long-standing partnership.
FNT recently released the integration of FNT Command into StableNet® by Infosim®, a market leading platform for network management of telecommunications and enterprises. Through the integration, enterprises can automate the documentation of technical components within network infrastructures and significantly improve the accuracy of data within FNT Command.
As a modern, web-based software solution with a central data repository, FNT Command empowers enterprises to speed up daily data center processes and reduce unplanned downtimes. With an open architecture and standard interfaces, FNT Command provides continuous end-to-end signal tracing across cable infrastructures, faster fault analysis and repairs, and planning scenarios based on accurate, up-to-date information.
StableNet® provides Fault, Performance, Configuration, and Services Management on a single platform. A vendor agnostic solution, StableNet® is built upon a single, consistent code base. The unified network & services management approach has been successfully implemented in key industries like energy, finance, manufacturing, retail, telecommunications, and many more.
The interface between FNT Command and StableNet® automatically imports and updates data on chassis including routers, switches, and load balancers as well as modules, submodules, and physical ports. Once the data transfer is complete, FNT Command will compare the data to resolve any discrepancies between the actual physical network and the documented infrastructure.

Key Challenges for today’s Telco Network & Service Management: Closing service gaps between Telco and Enterprise management requirements
This is the first part of a three-part blog series that will be looking into the specific challenges and opportunities that Telcos are currently facing with managing their ever-evolving network infrastructures.
FNT Command® offers you the opportunity to manually map dependencies, locations of equipment, administrators and more. However, discovery and inventory require a further step – a comparison of how things should be and how they actually are once your network is up and running. This is where the FNT interface with the StableNet® Discovery Module comes in.
Networks are never static. A common theory suggests an approach that consists of “plan, build, run” but the reality in operations is that the focus is more on configure, monitor and troubleshoot.
