What technology providers do you work with and support?

Local Backhaul Networks’ independence has allowed us to develop tight relationships with the major technology manufacturers. We work on industry, technology direction, new product releases and lab integration. This allows us to provide our clients the most flexibility in technology selection and enables the manufacturers the opportunity to market to OcularIP clients.

What if we don’t see our specific technology on your list of supported technologies?

Chances are you can continue to use your technology and we can integrate it! We have developed custom apps to allow for quick, comprehensive integration of nearly any technology. The 100+ technologies supported today are based on user requests. OcularIP is the only PMR system that offers a Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF)36 poller.  The MEF states that there are over 20 manufacturers’ technologies represented today.

OcularIP also offers an SNMP poller, a push group capability, and several APIs (including REST APIs) that can integrate with NMS or other systems. Due to our extensive integration experience we also support many manufacturers’ proprietary extensions. Examples may include Cisco IPSLA, Accedian’s PAA, Adva, ALU, BTI, etc.


What industry standards and organizations is Local Backhaul Networks involved with?

The foundations of our solutions are based industry standards. In 2010 OcularIP was the first performance portal to leverage Carrier Ethernet’s OAM standards. We have CE Certified Professionals on our team and we developed the industry’s only MEF36 poller for integration of CE devices.
