DUBLIN, IRELAND, June 19 /CNW/ - embeddedMIND has added Netconf to the
range of standard management protocols supported by their model-driven
Netconf is a transport independent XML-based complete management layer
protocol whose charter includes differentiation of configuration and
non-configuration data. Developed in the IETF by the Netconf working group
this new protocol has been designed to build upon the industry experience of
SNMP and to meet new needs for automation and greater control over
configuration data. Standardisation has started with RFC 4741 in December 2006
and is now proceeding to cover notifications and other areas.
"We are looking forward to working with the makers of networked equipment
to explore the use of this exciting new approach to device management," said
David French, VP of product management for embeddedMIND. "Netconf provides an
interesting new approach to device management and is a natural fit to our
model-driven architecture. For existing devices embeddedMIND also provides a
transition path for makers who require one or more of the current management
protocols such as CLI, SNMP and Web/XML and now wish to offer Netconf. For our
existing global customer base Netconf is simply a new software component which
can be seamlessly added to the management layer thus providing a roadmap into
next generation management functionality."
