Vanguard ApplicationsWare Suite

Vanguard Networks’ Applications Ware software suite is what drives the extensive capabilities of the Vanguard product family. The Applications Ware software suite is field proven with tens of thousands of units installed worldwide. It is commonly supported across all product families, allowing customers to migrate from older deployed platforms and traditional services to newer platforms with IP-based services without losing functionality and with minimal disruption to services.

A flexible licensing scheme that is made up of base licenses and upgrade licenses provides for deployment of needed functionality at low cost, while giving customers the ability to add on new services on an as-needed basis.

Vanguard’s customers can select the software capabilities to be used with Vanguard’s diverse range of products. This gives the customer a “build-as-you-grow” capability, lowering long term total cost of ownership (TCO) while providing the ability to scale up or change services when needed.

Vanguard’s selection of base licenses provides for ample application diversity that meets the needs of an extensive range of enterprise services that cover data and voice applications.

The table below describes the capabilities supported by the various base licenses.
