Nortel releases new management software

The networker introduces new software technology that ties management software pieces from Bay Networks to those promoted by Nortel.

Nortel Networks has released new software technology that ties management software pieces from Bay Networks to those promoted by Nortel.

Nortel Networks is integrating its Passport 3.1 for wide-area networks (WANs) into its Optivity line, acquired in the Bay Networks deal. The new software will roll out next month.

The integration is a byproduct of Nortel's purchase of Bay Networks last year and part of the new company's overall goal of consolidating its voice and data technology and software for WANs with counterparts targeted at local area networks, or LANs.

Nortel Networks also announced plans to release new network accounting software next month. Optivity Service Accounting 1.0 monitors networks--including IP, frame relay, remote access, and Virtual Private Network usage--and generates reports for administrators.

The accounting software supports equipment from other companies, such as Cisco Systems and Lucent Technologies.

Passport 3.1 will ship next month and costs $12,000. The price for Optivity Service Accounting 1.0 starts at $30,000.
