Intelliden Awarded Three Patents for Modeling and Representing Network Devices
Intelliden, a leading provider of Intelligent Networking solutions that enable organizations to control, manage and scale their networks, has been issued three U.S. patents for its methods to model and represent network devices using standards-based XML interfaces. The patents, in conjunction with other patents and patents pending, describe technologies that provide a common interface through which enterprises can interact with network devices without regard to device type or manufacturer.
“Historically, individuals charged with management of networks have relied upon manual methods of retrieving information from network devices, as well as to send commands to change and configure those devices,” said Glen Tindal, CTO of Intelliden. “Such methods have varied greatly by manufacturer, model and other variables due to a lack of a standard interface across heterogeneous environments. To reduce the complexity and costs associated with managing networks, standard-setting organizations such as the NETCONF, a working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), have sought to promulgate standards based on XML that ease the burden of managing increasingly complex network devices. As network automation pioneers, we have committed to use XML standards as the common method to consistently model and represent the complex capabilities of network devices and this is at the core of these patents.”
