Tektronix selects RLM
Network operators today are faced with many challenges that impact their businesses – more competition, technology challenges, and a more demanding customer base. Many network operators have been caught off-guard and are searching for viable, cost-efficient solutions that will mitigate these challenges and enable all facets of their business to excel.

To be able to meet the constantly changing network demands and growth as well different operator sizes and requirements, we introduced a new innovative Applications Platform, IrisView. As the framework behind the Network Intelligence portfolio, IrisView provides a seamless user experience for all applications within the frameworkregardless of the underlying data source.
Such flexibility required the embedded power of a license manager platform to enable the dynamic change, update and packaging of customer tailored solutions using different IrisView modules. Using the IrisView embedded license manager, RLM from Reprise Software, we were able to creatively price, package, and bundle products for broader and deeper operator’s market penetration whether it is on the mobile or fixed side. To meet emerging markets demands, we were also able to quickly create corresponding product packages to better serve these markets. With the license manager we were also able to offer our customers the use of IrisView applications trials or evaluations. Such trials enabled shorten acceptance cycles and generated interest in our new product features and upgrades.
