STOCKHOLM and LONDON, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tail-f Systems, a leading provider of on-device management and programmability solutions, and Metaswitch Networks, today announced that Astrium Services' subsidiary ND SatCom has selected a joint offering that includes Tail-f's ConfD and Metaswitch's IP routing solutions to deliver routing and network management through its satellite communication applications.
Tail-f has partnered with Metaswitch in order to help businesses reduce product development cycles. ND SatCom is now taking advantage of this technology partnership through the adoption of the MetaCLI Tail-Pack, which integrates Metaswitch routing protocols into Tail-f's technology. In addition, ND SatCom's adoption of the Tail-f ConfD product helps it further reduce its time to market for new solutions.
"After evaluating various products, we chose Tail-f's and Metaswitch's off-the-shelf solution to help us better serve our customers," said Michael Weixler, Director of Technology at ND SatCom. "With ConfD's integration with Metaswitch's IP routing solutions, we anticipate a faster time to market for products while maintaining the network management experience operators expect."
Having integration between ConfD and Metaswitch Layer 3 routing protocols, without the need for additional programming, will enable ND SatCom to more quickly auto-render a fully transactional Cisco CLI and other northbound interfaces like NETCONF and WebUI.
"Working with Metaswitch is helping us deliver on our commitment to simplifying network management," said Hakan Millroth, CTO of Tail-f Systems. "The new pre-integrated routing ability delivered by this partnership complements our on-device solutions to deliver fast, effective on-device management and programmability."
