System Development Timeline

An administrative GUI (web-based interface) was added. Rule-based data aggregation algorithms were provided to enable visual marts and dashboards. The software product was delivered to KKTCell, a Northern Cyprus subsidiary of Turkcell.
An SMS/e-mail notification module was added; monitoring agent auto-update functionality was implemented. The monitoring suite was purchased by TT Mobile (Tajikistan).
An API was developed to enable diagrams, historical data retrieval and reference information maintenance. The solution was installed at KyivStar (Ukraine).
The functionality was extended with schedule-based polling tools, thresholds and notifications in the format of SNMP traps (for an external monitoring system). A deployment project was launched in the branches of MegaFon, a leading Russian universal telecommunication service provider.
The product was created; a basic set of modules for access to application monitoring parameters was developed.
