Harris Corporation Introduces NetBoss XT Resource Management Solution Tailored for Today’s Service-Oriented Networks


Combines powerful resource management with the latest technology for an easy-to-use management solution that lowers operational costs

MELBOURNE, Fla., November 28, 2006 — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), a leading global provider of turnkey network management systems, today introduced NetBoss XT™, a new resource management solution rich in the critical features vital to managing today’s service-oriented networks. Flexible and based on the Common Information Model (CIM), an open industry standard, NetBoss XT™ is the ideal resource management solution for a broad range of industries, including telecom, IT, government, defense, broadcast, utilities, transportation and more.

“Our customers demand open-architecture products that comply with industry standards, and the CIM-based NetBoss XT family is fully compatible,” said John Koenig, vice president of the Harris NetBoss business unit. “Additionally, the NetBoss XT family provides unmatched resource management scalability while incorporating the latest Java technology. Our customers will derive significant financial and operational benefits from these features.”

The highly versatile NetBoss XT™ can be deployed as a domain manager, element manager and alarm collector in three corresponding solution-oriented products: NetBoss XD™ Domain Manager, NetBoss XE™ Element Manager and NetBoss XA™, an Alarm/Event Collector. These multiple-role-based products not only give customers “right-sized” implementations that match their architectural needs but also are correspondingly priced at affordable levels. Further, these configurations can be combined with the existing NetBoss Manage.IT™ product, to scale management architecture to fit the largest and most complex networks. In this architecture, Manage.IT complements the NetBoss XT products by acting as a manager of managers.

Enriching the NetBoss XT family’s architectural flexibility and versatility is its leading-edge Java and CIM technology. Java Swing technology makes the impressive Graphical User Interfaces of NetBoss XT™ easy to learn and use, lowering operational costs. And, since NetBoss XT™ is based on the Distributed Management Task Force’s CIM, it requires less effort both to integrate with other compliant products and to build agents, even for the most complex devices.

Augmenting the robust capabilities of NetBoss XT™, the optional NetBoss XT Agent Studio enables customers to efficiently and cost effectively build and maintain their own NetBoss XT agents. NetBoss XT Agent Studio simplifies the development process, lowering operating expenses.

As with all Harris management products, NetBoss XT™ is backed by a professional support staff and a full array of services that includes agent development, OSS integration, a remote monitoring service, training and global 24x7 support.

NetBoss XT™ is available now. Contact Harris for more information via phone: 1-800-442-7747, or email:
