The Open Software Foundation has chosen Compagnie des Machines Bull SA to integrate the various components that will make up the Network Management Option part of its Distributed Management Environment. The other two components of the Management Environment comprise distributed services and object management frameworks. Bull has also been asked to test the resultant source code, which is due to be released by the middle of the year. The Paris firm will integrate its own implementation of X/Open Co Ltd’s XMP management protocol, already included in DME, with Hewlett-Packard Co’s Postmaster router software, which is found in OpenView and supports SNMP and CMIP protocols. The Network Management Option will also incorporate naming services, which support the X500 standard, supplied by Siemens Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG.
