SOFTWARE FOUNDATION WILL SET NETWORK MANAGEMENT OPTION DETAILS

By CBR Staff Writer

At the newly-combined Networld+Interop 94 show in Las Vegas next week, the Open Software Foundation will set pricing and packaging details for its DME Network Management Option, a piece of technology which along with some distributed management services is all that remains of the Foundation’s overly-ambitious Distributed Management Environment. Compagnie des Machines Bull SA has been integrating its XMP management protocol (now the X/Open Management Protocol Application Programming Interface), the latest XOM 7.0 OSI abstract data manipulation language Application Programming Interface, with Siemens Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG’s X.500 directory services, Hewlett-Packard Co Postmaster routing software and other IBM Corp work. Network Management Option is viewed as a building block for vendors’ own network management environments, indeed as part of an agreement with Bull, Hewlett has already been able to re-architect the communications structure of its OpenView Distributed Management Platform to use XMP and XOM and is planning to offer SNMP and OSI/CMIP-based OpenView implementations from next month.
