Enea Extends On-Device Management Framework with NETCONF Support for NFV/SDN Deployments

Enabling Model-Driven Development with NETCONF and YANG

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, November 4, 2015 – Enea® (NASDAQ OMX Nordic:ENEA) today announced the release of its On-Device Management framework, based on Enea Element version 3.6.0. Among the most prominent feature add-ons, new support for the NETCONF configuration protocol is found.

With the rapid convergence of telecom, cloud, connected devices, and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), the need for more capable and heterogeneous device management solutions has increased. Enea’s feature-rich On-Device Management framework provides all of the management functionality needed within a managed device, whether it is a single node or a distributed system.

“With the addition of the NETCONF protocol, Enea’s framework now supports the relevant northbound protocols”, said Daniel Forsgren, SVP Product Management, Enea. “NETCONF is the emerging standard for device management, and Enea utilizes it to manage, configure, control, and deploy functions within a cloud infrastructure. It allows network administrators to automate tasks across heterogeneous devices in software defined networks – all in the data modeling language YANG.”
