Monitoring and control of operational communication networks and servicesDownload Sentinel overview
A major challenge in implementing Operational Communication Networks is how to operate and maintain an evolving, multi-technology, multi-vendor telecom infrastructure to deliver services with a guaranteed level of quality for multiple groups of users with different service requirements. GE’s Sentinel is a multi-vendor telecom management platform, designed to fulfill the requirements of electrical power utilities’ operational communication networks.
Sentinel is a vendor-agnostic management platform designed to fulfill the requirements of power utilities’ operational communications, by providing a platform that aggregates, integrates, correlates and visualizes communication network data, in real-time, from multiple sub-systems, into one dashboard view.
This new visualization of data can then be utilized to drive critical and actionable business and operational decisions to meet KPIs and contractual Communication Quality metrics.
