Enterprise Communications Server™ (ECS)
The Enterprise Communications Server™(ECS) provides a centralized location for administering and monitoring changes made to all network equipment both on and off site. The ECS logs, manipulates, sorts, and stores data from all systems and equipment connected to it. Systems and equipment communicate with the ECS using a telnet or serial connection. The mated client program provides a firewall that allows the program administrator to determine who has access to each system and piece of equipment and how much access they have. The ECS also provides a web interface that allows button objects to be executed from the browser, tablet, or smart phone.
The ECS eliminates hours of redundant tasks by using the VCL programming language. This is a procedure automation process scripting language. Small program scripts called button objects are created by personnel in your company who fully understand these systems and processes. The button object can then be executed by personnel that do not know the processes by clicking on the button and filling out the input form. This allows for a customer service representative to add, modify, and test complex network systems without having knowledge of the system or procedures. This same button object can also be executed from other systems by calling the button object and passing the parameters needed by the button object.
The ECS is a time saving program in that any command or action that can be performed on equipment by a human being (hardware replacement excluded) can be automated. With the ECS, repetitive and redundant tasks can be eliminated from any employee's schedule, allowing time for other projects and duties. For example, in the telecommunications industry the ECS can be used to automate the cut off and restore process of service. Untrained personnel can do complex tasks by clicking a button and entering a number.

What is ECS?
The Enterprise Communications Server™(ECS) provides a centralized location for administering and monitoring all network peripheral hardware on-site and off-site. The ECS logs, manipulates, sorts, and stores data from all systems and hardware connected to it. Systems and hardware communicate with the ECS using a telnet, serial, or HTML connection. The mated client program provides a firewall that allows the program administrator to determine who has access to each system, piece of hardware, and how much access they have.
