Welcome to the October issue of IBM Service Provider News, replacing Netcool News and Vallent News Update.
This is an exciting time at IBM Tivoli as we see our acquisition integration plans come to fruition. We will keep you
up to date on our new and truly leading-edge offerings, such as the IBM Tivoli Netcool Service Quality Manager and the
IBM Tivoli Netool Carrier VoIP Manager (see related articles below). To stay current, subscribe to the IBM Service Provider
News if you haven't already done so.
Our readership is expanding to clients and partners of other IBM software, hardware

all our readers.
