Juniper Licenses IBM Netcool Service Management Software
Integrates service management software into Junos Space platform.
Juniper Networks Inc. said that it will license IBM Corp.s Tivoli Netcool service management software for its Junos Space application platform, a move it expects will help customers more readily develop applications that leverage the network.
Juniper said that Junos Space will include IBM Tivoli Netcool/Omnibus and Network Manager technology.
IBM said that the Netcool software allows customers to gain real-time, centralized monitoring and network discovery capabilities and help service providers operate more effectively by gaining greater network intelligence and business insight into their networking infrastructures.
"We are working with Juniper to drive value for customers, enabling them to reduce costs, improve service and manage risk," said Al Zollar, vice president and general manager, IBM Tivoli.
"With this new OEM agreement, the combined strengths of Juniper's open network application platform and IBM's Tivoli technology allow customers to enable new services and revenue streams while improving the operational management of their networking infrastructures," he said.
"Juniper Networks and IBM share a common vision on developing next-generation platforms that enable new services, new experiences and new business models," said Mike Harding, vice president and general manager, Junos Space business unit.
"Our combined solution enables customers to simplify network operations and rapidly scale services, which improves the resilience, economics and experience of their networking infrastructures."
