Customer experience during Super Storm Sandy in 2012
"I am writing to you today to express my deep appreciation for the software functionality that you all have provided to [us]. INC has played a pivotal role in current and ongoing restoration efforts in the wake of the tragic hurricane Sandy. We have used INC to restore many circuits, network elements, and data across at least 6 central offices including New Jersey. While you all are working to normalize, we are working to normalize daily communication functionality with INC, the software that you all write. We have hundreds of people relying [upon] INC during this time; I have not been informed of a single failure in INC fulfilling its role in our business during this critical time."

Daily PM Checks on 10GB Circuits
I wanted to say thank you for the 1340 INC system and let you know how much manual work it has saved us. We have a very large customer that has been experiencing troubles on multiple long haul 10GB circuits. These circuits are very long and ride up to 25 nodes along 1 route. Since these issues were so chronic and were getting so much management attention, we were manually pulling the PM data from each node every single day. It would take almost 2 hours of sending commands. I remembered that INC automatically pulled PM on other circuits, so I added the nodes for this circuit to INC and setup the automatic 24 hour PM retrievals. Now INC pulls the PM for me automatically everyday! All we have to do now is pull an INC report and see if there are any issues to investigate. Thank you!
