TCS Receives System Patent
[11-27-07 – Satellite Today] TeleCommunication Systems Inc. (TCS) received a patent for its high-level operational support system, the company announced Nov. 27.
The patent enables applications and systems to be managed dynamically, regardless of the platform or programming technology. The invention allows for wireless operators to centrally manage multiple applications in a more efficient manner. Fault management, statistics management and system health monitoring can all be done in a consistent fashion across all applications, TCS said.
"Wireless operators are grappling with effective management of multiple applications written in disparate programming languages running on separate platforms," Drew Morin, senior vice president and CTO for TCS, said in a statement. "The new high-level operational support system invention by TCS provides the common framework to empower wireless operators with the full ability to monitor, analyze and manage their heterogeneous applications dynamically at runtime, regardless of the platforms in use."
