Foundry Networks, a provider of switching, routing, security and web traffic management solutions, has announced an integration with IBM Tivoli Netcool software for customers using Foundry switching and routing products. This integration facilitates simplified operations for Foundry customers using IBM Tivoli Netcool, thereby helping improve business efficiency.
This technology partnership is expected to allow Tivoli Netcool software to manage Foundry switches and routers in networks, element/network management systems and applications. As a result of this rules-based integration, root cause analysis of faults in a large network can be rapidly analyzed, thereby improving operational efficiency.
Al Zollar, general manager of Tivoli Software at IBM, said: This newly formed alliance enables integration of a variety of Foundry devices with the real-time event- and fault-management solution Netcool/OMNIbus. The ease with which we integrated Foundry’s products with Netcool/OMNIbus is testament to their consistent management framework that is implemented across their entire product portfolio.
Ken Cheng, vice president and general manager for high-end and service provider systems business unit at Foundry, said: We are pleased to be working with IBM to provide simplified integration for our joint customers. Foundry is committed to working with leading OSS systems vendors to deliver integrated and interoperable solutions with our enterprise and service provider switches and routers.
