Kratos Releases Newest Version Of COMPASS(TM) With Enhanced End-to-End Management Across Satellite And Terrestrial Networks

Stocks in this article: KTOS

SAN DIEGO, March 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Networks, Inc. announced the release of the newest version of COMPASS , the industry leading Monitor and Control (M&C) software product. Version 7.5 includes integration with Kratos' NeuralStar ® enterprise management platform for enhanced end-to-end management across satellite and terrestrial networks for greater assurance of Service Level Agreements (SLA) and Quality of Service (QoS).

COMPASS is used by thousands of sites around the world for monitoring and controlling RF equipment and operational technology for satellite earth stations, microwave towers, remote sites, and a range of hybrid networks. NeuralStar's enterprise management platform monitors IP-based networks and collects and fuses specialized data from any network-connected device into a common end-to-end operational picture of network operations. The new release of COMPASS with NeuralStar integration enables the combined products to provide a unified management dashboard of satellite and terrestrial network performance for enhanced SLA and QoS assurance.

The integration of COMPASS with NeuralStar enables the sharing of data from RF and IP management systems and the fusion of information into a meaningful operational picture for faster response and better decision making. A diverse range of data is normalized and fed into the system, delivering analytics to help optimize network operations, maximize bandwidth usage and accelerate root cause identification. The integrated products streamline disparate operations at a fraction of the cost of custom solutions and one-off integration projects.

Kratos provides complete situational awareness through its End-to-End (E2E) Management Suite that includes COMPASS, NeuralStar and Monics ®, the industry's most used carrier monitoring and interference detection product from its SAT subsidiary. E2E management is the ability to assure the availability, reliability and security of communication between distributed end points across heterogeneous transports. The E2E Management Suite is united by an architecture that incorporates distributed data collection, abstraction, integration, analysis and correlation. Each product is available stand alone or as part of the management suite. For more information about E2E Management, see the Tech Focus Report in the recent issue of Via Satellite Magazine.

"Organizations are looking to improve service levels and QoS for customers and reduce operational costs by maximizing network utilization on both the terrestrial and satellite segments," said Michael Smith, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Technology at Kratos. "With the new version of COMPASS, we are overcoming some of the traditional management stovepipes and delivering broader system visibility across the entire network. This includes features such as unified dashboards and reporting that can be optimized for a specific user, service or operation to enable increased effectiveness and ROI."
