Black Box Network Services Partners with PathSolutions to Further Expand Its Network Performance Monitoring

September 16, 2009, Pittsburgh, PA. ― Black Box Network Services has announced a strategic business relationship with PathSolutions. The agreement allows Black Box Network Services to sell PathSolutions’ industry leading portfolio of network performance monitoring applications. Network performance monitoring is a component of Black Box Network Services’ suite of service-based offerings.

“Our relationship with PathSolutions provides a solid step in continually enhancing our communication support services. This performance monitoring solution will not only help our clients’ networks perform better but can be purchased as an operating expense which is an important feature in this economy,” said Terry Blakemore, President and Chief Executive Officer of Black Box Network Services. “These monitoring applications are available as a service, purchased as a license, or a combination of both.”

PathSolutions’ Total Network Visibility™ solutions represent a new direction in network performance monitoring by changing how engineering effort is utilized. The solutions for VoIP and data networks act as network eyes and ears, automatically monitoring the health and performance of every device and link. As a result, problems can be easily identified and quickly diagnosed. This allows engineers to spend their valuable time resolving problems instead of installing and configuring software.

“Black Box’s diversified portfolio of data and VoIP offerings and broad geographic footprint make for a very powerful partner. We’re excited to be working together to rapidly improve the quality and manageability of every aspect of Black Box customer networks,” said Tim Titus, CTO of PathSolutions.
