Overview:


Ridgeline Network and Service Management is a key component to achieving network and service management simplicity

Ridgeline is a scalable, full-featured network and service management tool that simplifies configuration, provisioning, troubleshooting and status monitoring of IP-based networks. Offering a comprehensive set of network management applications for the network and its elements, Ridgeline delivers network and service management while adding valuable and intuitive features that help save time by streamlining common tasks.

Ridgeline offers intuitive user interfaces and reduces the complexity of managing converged networking environments. The topology view in Ridgeline displays every element of the network and how they are connected in Layer 2 and Layer 3. As network configuration becomes more complex, the ability to visualize, monitor, and troubleshoot the network end-to-end is critical. End-to-end networks like VLAN and vMAN can be viewed via Ridgeline. Configuration management adds another operational simplicity. Configuration management archives and reloads device configuration and performs configuration diffs or baselining for auditing purposes. Firmware management obtains firmware version and availability information, and performs multi-step upgrades—at once or scheduled—for single or multiple devices. Ridgeline offers an open architecture to accommodate a multi-vendor, service-rich environment that enables voice-class availability and the enforcement of robust security policies. Targeted Feature Packs allow network managers to customize their Ridgeline installation for their environment.

The powerful service management features of the Ridgeline Service Advisor Feature Pack enable carriers to monetize their networks by shifting from reactive circuit monitoring to proactive service management. Ridgeline unifies service fulfillment, service assurance, and service engineering so carriers can effectively manage next-generation residential triple play, business Ethernet, wholesale Ethernet and mobile backhaul services.

The Data Center Feature Pack offers support for XNV™ (ExtremeXOS Network Virtualization), which provides centralized network-based virtual machine (VM) inventory, VM location history and VM provisioning; centralized network-based configuration and distributed network-based enforcement of network-level capabilities down to the individual virtual machine level; and automated VM lifecycle tracking of virtual machines in the network.

The Security Feature Pack provides support for Identity Manager, which provides network-wide reporting of identities and also helps administrators manage network-wide role-based policies for both users and devices and apply them consistently across the network to enable seamless mobility and on-demand access to applications to maintain business continuity.
