French National Health Insurer Fulfills Network Performance Management Needs with InfoVista's Powerful Service Assurance Platform
PARIS & HERNDON, Va. --(Business Wire)--
the global leader of IP and RF planning, assurance and optimization
software solutions, today announced that La Caisse Nationale de
l'Assurance Maladie des Travailleurs Salari�s (CNAMTS),
the national healthcare insurance fund for salaried workers in France,
has fully integrated InfoVista's industry-leading unified
service performance assurance platform into its network management
ecosystem. InfoVista's solutions not only support CNAMTS's national
network operations center (NOC (News - Alert)), Centre National de Gestion du R�seau
(CNGR), but also scale to ensure the network performance and service
levels of more than 120 local healthcare organizations (Caisse Primaire
d'Assurance Maladie or CPAM) in metropolitan France and overseas
departments and territories.
CNAMTS's shared IT organization is leveraging VistaInsight®
for Networks to monitor more than 10,000 network equipment
components and routinely cross-check inventory. The baselining and
proactive trending capabilities of InfoVista's solution helps the CNGR
understand if and why resources are under- or over-used, to precisely
right-size the networks. When new equipment is deployed or a
configuration is modified, InfoVista's platform automatically discovers
it and immediately launches the appropriate reporting, thus ensuring key
performance indicators' (KPIs) and reports' accuracy. InfoVista's
technology also immediately delivers performance data to third-party IT
management tools, thereby empowering CNAMTS to streamline
mission-critical IT workflows and reduce OPEX (News - Alert).
CNAMTS also uses VistaInsight for Networks to track the performance and
service levels of the network services provided by its communications
service providers (CSPs). This helps the French national health insurer
optimize bandwidth usage and right-size network resources, supporting
capacity planning and decreasing CAPEX.
In addition, CNAMTS recently deployed Vista360®
to enable CPAM network managers to proactively and easily pinpoint,
diagnose and resolve quality of service (QoS) issues on their own.
InfoVista's solution facilitates collaboration between the local network
managers and the central NOC of CNAMTS to accelerate problem
troubleshooting and further boost operational efficiency across the
entire IT service chain. The CPAMs are even empowered to determine if
network performance complies with the CNGR's internal service level
"InfoVista's platform has more than proven that it is the most
powerful service assurance solution on the market," said Lo�c
Fournier, head of the network management department, CNGR, CNAMTS.
"Its capabilities have allowed us to discover our infrastructure,
enable the critical capacity planning process, automatically align all
of the reporting throughout our organization, and easily identify
degradations in network performance and accelerate troubleshooting.
InfoVista's unified service performance assurance platform is a
trusted resource for our NOC and should be a part of any enterprise's
performance management toolkit."
"InfoVista's unified service performance assurance platform is
designed to meet the unique needs of large and IT-intensive government
organizations like CNAMTS," said Vikas Trehan, senior vice president,
service assurance product line and alliances, InfoVista. "It provides
the scalability, flexibility and openness required in order to
automate and streamline network performance management practices. We
are proud to help CNAMTS's shared IT organization maintain optimal QoS
and quality of experience (QoE), while improving network efficiency,
reducing OPEX and lowering total cost of ownership (TCO)."
CNAMTS, the national health insurance fund for salaried workers in
France, is under the supervision of both the Health Ministry and
Finance and Economy Ministry. It is the primary health insurer for 56
million lives, which is almost 86 percent of the French population.
