Cisco to Resell OPNET's Management Software

Cisco Systems will resell OPNET Technologies' management software for networks and applications under a multiyear worldwide distribution agreement. The OEM deal includes a broad range of OPNET's advanced analytical applications for the enterprise market.

OPNET and the Cisco Network Management Technology Group will also collaborate on new network management solutions.

OPNET's solutions address: application performance troubleshooting; application deployment planning; systems capacity planning; network configuration auditing; network capacity and resiliency planning. The company offers network management software for both enterprise networks and service providers.

  • In January 2005, OPNET announced that it had been awarded the second of four possible contract extensions to continue to work on the U.S. Department of Defense's Network Warfare Simulation (NETWARS) program. NETWARS is a software application for analyzing defense-related network communications. The project is part of the DoD's vision for achieving information superiority by optimizing military communications in realistic warfighter scenarios.

  • Also in January 2005, HP and OPNET announced that Telefónica Móviles España had selected a combined solution from the companies to forecast the impact and accelerate the delivery of new mobile services. Telefónica Móviles will use HP OpenView operational management solutions and OPNET's SP Guru software to design and deploy advanced services over a new MPLS/IP network in Spain.

  • In September 2004, OPNET agreed to acquire Altaworks Corporation, a developer of advanced correlation and analysis technologies designed to enable enterprises to improve the performance and quality of mission-critical applications.

  • In August 2004, OPNET Technologies introduced a 3D Network Visualizer module for enhancing the value of OPNET simulations in mobile wireless environments, and in particular for defense networks. The new module can be used to visualize mobile wireless simulations in 3D, including detailed terrain, performance statistics, and graphical representation of communications.
