S-A Adds Backup Help


Scientific-Atlanta Inc. has added an automated-backup feature to its "SciCare Broadband Services" product line.

The new operational-support-system solution is for S-A's "Digital Network Control System."

S-A said the backup system is completely digital, making it faster, more reliable and less expensive than traditional tapes.

The system enables operators to evaluate system and backup status at all times, manage backups with greater accuracy and precision, protect systems using remotely stored backups and minimize system- and service-outtage time.

S-A said it planned to expand its OSS business to cover customer care, network management, work-force management, business management and provisioning.
