Selects Codima VoIP Solution For Japanese Governmental NGN Project
Codima Inc, a global provider of best practice software tools for VoIP and IT Asset Management, has announced it has entered a partnership agreement with Artiza Networks, Japan’s leading Network and VoIP Testing Solution developer.
To supply the Next Generation Network (NGN) project, Artiza Networks has selected the comprehensive VoIP management solution Codima Toolbox.
Artiza Networks will provide the solution offered by Codima to enable their customers, including leading Japanese IT corporations to build the new Japanese IP-based infrastructure.
The Japanese Next Generation Network (NGN) project requires fundamental investments in infrastructure technology.
Analyst IDC Japan values the network management market alone at US$7.75 billion over the next three years.
To address this significant demand Artiza Networks has decided to select the Codima VoIP Solution and prioritize the project by forming a specific NGN Group.
The group will target the customer base including major system integrators, telecom carriers and telecommunications manufacturers.
Artiza Networks required a comprehensive end-to-end solution to monitor and troubleshoot SIP-based VoIP systems in real time with options for pre-assessment testing and engineer’s kits.
Codima delivers a suite of products that is ideal for these purposes. Specifically Codima’s flagship products autoVoIP, providing robust post-deployment monitoring and troubleshooting to ensure Quality of Service (QoS) and autoMap with its unique capabilities to map and visualize IT networks directly with Microsoft Office Visio are of interest to enable cost efficient VoIP network management.
The ground breaking governmental initiative involving Japan’s leading IT corporations NEC, Fujitsu OKI and Hitachi, transforms Japan’s analogue telephone network into an IP-based infrastructure for unified communications.
According to Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, 100 per cent of the Japanese population will have access to broadband connections by 2010.
The Japanese External Trade Organization Jetro estimates that the converged network market in Japan was worth 59.3 trillion yen (US$485 billion) in 2007 and will balloon to 87.6 trillion yen (US$740 billion) by 2010.
Christer Mattsson, CEO of Codima, said: “We are proud to form a partnership with Artiza Networks, an experienced industry leader in Japan.
“The local partnership will open up channels to resell our products to the NGN project, a governmental initiative of a magnitude that holds unparalleled business opportunities for companies like Codima.”
Takashi Tokonami, CEO of Artiza Networks, said: “Codima Toolbox met our requirements for a comprehensive VoIP management solution.
“Being a supplier to the Japanese network market for almost twenty years, we consider the market is shifting toward Next Generation Network, and it boosts up Codima Toolbox.”
