CLEAR COMMUNICATIONS INTRODUCES FIRST COMPREHENSIVE T1, CSU FAULT MANAGER

 CLEAR COMMUNICATIONS INTRODUCES FIRST
 COMPREHENSIVE T1, CSU FAULT MANAGER
 LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., May 4, /PRNewswire/ -- Clear Communications, Inc., a developer of total quality management (TQM) software for communications networks, today introduced the Clearview Fault Management (FM) system, the first comprehensive, real-time testing and fault management software for T1.5 voice and data lines.
 Clearview FM software continuously monitors network links and immediately reports the location and nature of degraded or failed circuits. Now in use at a large investment company, Clearview FM delivers a range of features not found in any other fault management product including detailed, time-stamped graphical reports, multivendor end-to-end support and centralized circuit and channel service unit (CSU) testing and management. Clearview FM runs on SUN SPARCStations and is available immediately priced at $525 per line.
 In many cases, network managers are unaware there is a line problem, especially with voice lines, until users complain or faulty circuits are re-routed onto costly, alternate toll networks. Clearview FM can generate savings to pay for itself because network managers can detect and fix problems rapidly, said Bob Copithorne, president and CEO of Clear.
 "Introduction of the Clearview Fault Management System broadens our product line by adding a cost-effective system that includes all the fault management and configuration management capabilities of the high-end Clearview Surveillance System," said Copithorne. "Clearview Fault Management is ideal for important voice and data lines and can be used in combination with the proactive Clearview Surveillance capabilities for mission-critical circuits."
 Clearview FM enables communications managers for the first time to improve the performance on important but non-mission-critical lines because it provides advanced capabilities at a substantially lower cost than other systems. Developed in response to customer requests, Clearview FM is based on and is upgradeable to the Clearview Surveillance system, a proactive, real-time T1.5 quality management package. Clearview Surveillance is now in use at AT&T, MasterCard International, GTE Data Services, Northern Telecom and other organizations to achieve "zero-defect, 99.999 percent error-free" performance on T1.5 networks. Running on Sun SPARCStations, the Clearview Surveillance system queries intelligent CSU's, analyzes the data and displays it a graphical report format. It is designed to detect and highlight transmission errors before they affect network performance.
 Clearview FM provides immediate alarm reports in easily understood graphical format, as well as centralized, automated on- or off-line circuit testing and CSU configuration and management. The system monitors T1.5 circuits from all Local Exchange Carriers (LECs), Interexchange Carriers (IXCs) and alternate access vendors (AAVs). It also gathers fault reporting information from equipment from the leading channel service unit (CSU) manufacturers including Larse and Verilink. Clearview FM software can monitor links employing D4 (Super Frame), the ESF ANSI standard, and ESF 54016 "AT&T" standard data packet framing.
 "Many organizations are applying total quality management principles to improve service and performance at all levels. Clearview Surveillance and Clearview Fault Management are the first automated tools capable of providing the necessary real-time performance management and fault reporting required by users and carriers to improve network quality," said David Miller, vice president at Clear Communications.
 Located in Lincolnshire, IL., Clear Communications is a telecommunications systems company dedicated to providing quality solutions for communications networks. The company's products offer network executives a Total Quality Management approach to attain their goals of zero defects, fault-free transmission and 100 percent availability in strategically crucial digital facilities.
