Sun Microsystems Inc thinks that in the internet age quality of service is going to be more important than the infrastructure per se and has put together a package of web- and Java-based services packaged as the Service-Driven Network for telcos and enterprise users. Sun is pitching the four products – three are new plus the existing internet-based Sun Directory Services (CI No 3,214) – as a third generation network management portfolio following its SunNet manager and Solstice Enterprise Manager offerings. Although it appears to be moving away from its sometime problematic Solstice brand, it’s actually a Solstice Enterprise Manager 2.1 Java supplement that is key to this offering. Designed for telcos it provides a set of Java APIs for application development as well as a browser-based Java management console it claims enables administrators to monitor their networks from anywhere. Also new is a Java dynamic management kit combining Java push technologies with network management functions for creating Java agents that can collect network information and return information to the console or fix problems autonomously. A bandwidth allocator provides real-time, Java-based network monitoring enabling managers to regulate services and allocate web-based resources.
