Smart Plug-ins

Like an App for your infrastructure

With most other assurance solutions, a large portion of the deployment or ongoing cost is in the development work required to integrate network elements, element management systems, or other data sources.


The device integration challenges of legacy management systems include:

  • Long time-to-market to support new devices
  • Ongoing maintenance required as network devices and EMSs are upgraded
  • Significant dedicated manpower and Opex budgets
  • Monitoring system downtime required to deploy device integration upgrades


In contrast, vSure™ is designed to be an out-of-the-box solution where the “heavy lifting” of integration is packed into smart plug-ins that are as easy to install and update as an app on your phone. Within a few clicks support for new devices, firmware, or protocols can be added to a running system with no downtime.

Once installed, a Plug-in will discover each device’s inventory, begin processing traps or alarms and begin polling for metrics supported for that device. Users can then quickly configure the various aspects of monitoring to meet their need.


Some of the benefits of the vSure Smart Plug-in Technology include:

  • No dedicated staff for device integration – reduced Opex
  • Faster time-to-market – huge library to choose from, new device plug-ins created in 1-3 weeks
  • Ongoing maintenance and upgrades of Plug-ins included
  • Drag and drop delivery model – no system downtime to install new plug-ins
  • Plug-ins are backward compatible and can support many different device software versions at the same time
  • Connection aware – Plug-ins maintain connectivity awareness to all devices, systems and EMSs. If connectivity is lost, they will attempt to reconnect automatically
  • Alarm Resynchronization – once connectivity is restored, plug-ins will resynchronize with the device to identify any alarms raises or clears missed during the outage to ensure the accuracy of the alarm screen
