Former Tektronix Communications Executive Joins Trendium to Lead the Worldwide Sales Organization and Bring the Newly-Developed and Innovative Customer Experience Assurance (CEA) Portfolio to Customers

Trendium, a provider of Customer Experience Assurance (CEA) and Analytics solutions for fixed and mobile broadband communications service providers, today announced that Andy Belcher has joined the company as Vice President of Worldwide Sales. The company recently introduced a new portfolio of solutions, designed for 4G/LTE mobile broadband applications, that are based on a unique and radically innovative assurance approach, that finally put Communications Service Providers (CSPs) in a position to stop the growing operational inefficiencies and costs while enabling a significant improvement in customer satisfaction.

“Worldwide, CSPs are experiencing a massive increase in traffic in their broadband networks, driven by the proliferation of smart devices and bandwidth-hungry applications. To cope with this phenomenon, they are investing in network expansions, particularly LTE, technology designed to speed up, reduce costs and simplify the network,” stated Dr. Sameh Yamany, President and CEO of Trendium, Inc. “However, the traditional technology used to manage the network, including probes and first-generation CEM solutions, are increasingly unsuited to this new environment and make very limited impact on true customer perceived quality, while costing a disproportionately high proportion of the CSP’s overall investment, with monitoring and service assurance now sometimes costing even more than the network, which is clearly unsustainable. Twenty years ago Andy led the HP division that founded SS7 monitoring, which has served voice networks and CSPs well over the intervening period. He brings a wealth of knowledge about this industry as well as the needs and expectations of CSPs. It is fitting that he now joins us in the launch of the next generation of customer experience assurance and monitoring technology, designed for the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s high-speed data-oriented networks.”

Trendium’s new portfolio is based on ViewPORT™, ServicePATH®, and the Network Access Agents (NAA®) family. Trendium has been awarded fourteen new patents, and has several more pending, in the area of high-speed traffic pattern analysis and correlation, optimized data collection, storage and retrieval, workflow and user interface design, and customer experience impact assessment for task and resource prioritization.

“I’m excited to join Trendium and its team of innovators and I am impressed by the core technologies, solution portfolio, and quantum leap in value proposition that Trendium has developed,” stated Andy Belcher. “From my discussions with customers over the last two years, I am convinced that Trendium is uniquely positioned to address their increasing challenges brought about by the explosive broadband traffic growth, and the early feedback from customers so far in Europe and North America is very encouraging.”

The new NAA® family also features interactive smart device agents that collect location-based perceived customer experience and network performance data in real time, as well as a large set of 300+ adapters for collection from network elements, EMSs, NMSs, B/OSS applications and 3rd party probes.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...
Discussions about cloud computing are evolving into discussions about enterprise IT in general.
