The article focuses on the role of Tom Buttermore, vice president of data engineering and operations, Adelphia Communications Corp. in developing a high-speed data network with high reliability. When Buttermore joined the company, the data network had no real provisioning other than what was contained in the billing system. Network monitoring also was minimal. His team of engineers brought online its homegrown "Nemos" network monitoring system that was able to oversee signal-to-noise levels, traffic congestion and individual modem performance levels.
