Foundry and WANDL Offer IP/MPLS Design Tools

Foundry Networks and WANDL, a supplier of high-end network design, planning, traffic engineering, and management tools, announced a partnership to simplify network planning, and deployment of traffic engineered IP/MPLS networks.

The companies have cooperated to integrate support for Foundry's flagship IP/MPLS routers, the NetIron XMR Series and NetIron MLX Series in WANDL's IP/MPLSView.

IP/MPLSView is WANDL's solution for multi-vendor IP/MPLS networks that allows network administrators and performance management teams to optimize network bandwidth, and manage network resources efficiently and productively.

Customers designing new networks or planning expansion of existing MPLS networks with Foundry's MPLS routers can now use IP/MPLSView to perform traffic engineering computations and off-line analysis to test network resiliency and reliability. The software enables automatic discovery of the network topology with graphical topology views.
