What technology providers do you work with and support?

Local Backhaul Networks’ and OcularIP’s 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 360+ technologies supported today are based on user requests. OcularIP was the first PMR system that offered a Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF)36 poller.

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.

OcularIP has released the oConnector application. This application provides a framework for fast interconnection of technologies, data lakes, applications, etc.
