Juniper Licenses IBM Tivoli Netcool Software

Juniper Networks has agreed to license and integrate IBM's Tivoli Netcool service management software into its Junos Space application platform.

Juniper's new Junos Space Fault Suite, which is expected to be available in third-quarter 2010, will provide a turnkey fault and network management solution for enterprises and communication service providers.

IBM's Tivoli Netcool software allows customers to gain real-time, centralized monitoring and network discovery capabilities. The software helps service providers operate more effectively by gaining greater network intelligence and business insight into their networking infrastructures.

"Juniper Networks and IBM share a common vision on developing next-generation platforms that enable new services, new experiences and new business models," said Mike Harding, vice president and general manager of the Junos Space Business Unit at Juniper Networks. "Our combined solution enables customers to simplify network operations and rapidly scale services, which improves the resilience, economics and experience of their networking infrastructures."

  • Earlier this month, Juniper Networks announced a new business group called Junos Ready Software dedicated to creating and delivering an ecosystem of software and applications built on the Junos platform for Service Providers. The Junos Ready Software group will deliver Juniper and partner-built applications, all running on the Junos platform.
