Using WebNMS APIs for Military-Grade Command and Control System Management

Today’s military demands an integrated, customizable and scalable networking environment. WebNMS, a telecom software division of network management solutions provider Zoho (News - Alert) Corporation, is the framework of choice for customizable commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) allowing for flexible engineering while using standards-based technologies such as IPv6, SNMP v3 and AES256 with strong access control, encryption and authentication.

The WebNMS framework has become the preferred Element Management System (EMS) and Network Management System (NMS) framework provider with deployments in every Tier 1 carrier in the world. Because of the flexibility in the WebNMS framework, users can quickly and easily deploy high performance, high availability EMS and NMS solutions in multiple domains.

The AN/UYQ-70 (Q-70) program, a hardware and software architecture that provides the cornerstone for implementing or modernizing combat, mission critical and command, control, communication, computers, intelligent, reconnaissance and tracking, is widely used in U.S. Navy applications and other Department of Defense applications on sea, land and airborne military platforms.

It is the foundation of Lockheed Martin (News - Alert) Tactical Systems, the world’s largest producer of open systems, COTS-based computing, display and network equipment for military applications.Q-70 supports the Navy’s initiative to Web enable applications and aligns with the Chief of Naval Operations’ vision to provide an infrastructure allowing universal access to shipboard systems.

Lockheed offers products and services for aerospace and defense, information technology, space, emerging capabilities and contract vehicles/GSA (News - Alert) schedules. Its Aegis combat system, the MK 41 Vertical Launching System and the SPY-1 radar helped revolutionize how world navies conduct operations across the seven seas. These systems remain vital to naval success to this day.

Q-70 uses WebNMS’ APIs for command and control management. WebNMS offers an abundance of APIs, including Java SNMP API, SNMP API Android (News - Alert) Edition, CLI API, .NET SNMP API and TL1 API. Developers can leverage WebNMS's SNMP library to build standalone, Web-based and distributed (EJB, CORBA or RMI) SNMP-based network management applications. WebNMS CLI API offers a comprehensive protocol stack for delivering Java-based and web-based solutions to manage Command Line Interface (CLI)-enabled devices. 

Customers of WebNMS’ APIs include SafeNet Inc., Wavelink Corp., Motorola, Siemens, Ericsson, Intel Corp., Vodafone, AT&T, Nokia (News - Alert), HP and many more.

Architects and network engineers using WebNMS can modify and control system behavior and can change the GUI look and feel with speed by simply changing XML configuration files or programming to APIs. The end result: command units have a highly customized management system to manage and control their infrastructure while keeping development and deployment costs low.
