OCTOBER 05, 2006 - MURRAY HILL, N.J. - Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) today announced its VitalSuite® Performance Management Software has won Network Testing Labs’ ‘World Class’ award for the best performance management and monitoring software.

Lucent’s VitalSuite® 10.0 Performance Management Software outperformed Concord Communications’ EHealth® Suite 5.7, Hewlett Packard’s OpenView Performance Insight 5.1, and InfoVista’s VistaInsight™ for Networks 2.0 based on its unique capabilities for pinpointing the causes of network problems and overburdened network devices, links and computers; ease-of-use; and the robustness and scalability of the product, according to Barry Nance, author of the network test for Network Testing Labs, a Network World Lab Alliance Partner.

“Lucent’s VitalSuite® Performance Management Software is an eminently scalable, robust, quick and easy to use approach to finding and fixing network performance problems,” said Nance. “VitalSuite® also gave the testers a ‘hands-off’ Service Level Agreement monitoring capability that they could rely on”, said Nance.

“We are extremely pleased that VitalSuite® was chosen by Network Testing Labs as the winner in the network performance management and monitoring test,” said Jamie Kistler, Business and Service Optimization Software Global Practice Leader, Lucent Worldwide Services. “This independent, head-to-head comparison validates that our VitalSuite® solution is the most scalable, robust and easiest-to-use network and application management software in the industry.”
