Juniper Networks Uses Powered by OpenNMS to Extend Junos Space

PITTSBORO, N.C.--()--The OpenNMS Group has entered into a "Powered by OpenNMS" licensing agreement with Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) to add fault and performance management capabilities to the Junos Space software platform.

Junos Space is a unique and disruptive platform that unites the management of disparate devices running the Junos operating system. Think of it as a universal remote for network devices - on steroids. Not only can it control all of those devices through the Network and Security Manager (NSM), it can allow applications to be built to fully automate the management process across devices to reduce the time and cost of administering a network to meet real business needs.

The "Powered by OpenNMS" product allows third parties to license the award winning OpenNMS network management application platform for integration with their systems, allowing them to focus on differentiating their products without having to also develop broad, feature rich management platform. OpenNMS brings highly scalable provisioning, event handling, and fault and performance management features across a wide range of devices, from routers and switches, through servers, virtual machines and applications.

"We saw a common need among equipment manufacturers and other companies for a powerful platform that they could use to showcase the capabilities that they had built into their products," states Tarus Balog, CEO of The OpenNMS Group. "Building an enterprise scale management system is hard, and by leveraging OpenNMS, companies can focus on providing the most features for their clients and their products, while leaving the rest to us."

Usama Anqud, Senior Director of Engineering at Juniper Networks, states "After evaluating several products, we found that OpenNMS was best-in-class, complimenting Junos Space by providing a highly scalable, full featured and customizable fault and performance management capabilities."

OpenNMS is available to everyone under an open source license (the GNU GPL, version 3), but for those companies that can't use that license without exposing either proprietary features or trade secrets to competitors, purchasing the "Powered by OpenNMS" program will allow them greater licensing options.
