AggreGate Network Management Framework
AggreGate Network Manager is based on the AggreGate Device Management Platform. This helps network equipment manufacturers, managed service providers and system integrators to build and deliver custom-tailored network management solutions. Branding and customization options of AggreGate IoT Platform along with its open-source SDK allowed us to provide AggreGate Network Management Framework for our OEM partners.
AggreGate Network Management Framework is a combination of AggreGate Core, network data processing modules and related device drivers (SNMP, Syslog, NetFlow, etc). Open-source Driver Development Kit (DDK) and Plugin SDK are designed to extend the system with custom functionality and guarantee a very low time-to-market for vendor-specific network management solutions.
Features and Benefits
Here are some important characteristics of AggreGate Network Management Framework:
Manager of Managers
In large environments, AggreGate is often used as an umbrella IT management middleware, or Manager of Managers (MoM). In this scenario, it acts as a bridge between NMS/EMS systems and ITSM/Helpdesk/Service Desk systems. AggreGate collects and consolidates alerts from diverse generic and vendor-specific management systems, normalizes and enriches them by using information pulled from Inventory systems, and then forwards enriched alerts to ITSM systems by converting them to trouble tickets and maintenance orders.
Those tickets are then managed by AggreGate, i.e. auto-closed upon alarm deactivation.
