New measurement system for UK education and research network

Tessella is to develop a new measurement and monitoring system for Janet, the network operator for the UK’s education and research network. The contract was awarded through the Catalist framework.

The key functionality of the existing system, Netsight, is to provide visibility of network performance to end-users and network managers, both in terms of organisations’ individual connections and the core Janet backbone.

Janet has asked Tessella to redesign and redevelop Netsight, to meet the growing needs and expectations of its user community, and to incorporate recent improvements in monitoring technology. The new system will provide increased interactivity and high resilience, and should be scalable to connect more than 30,000 organisations.

It is due to be completed by December 2007 and introduced into service early in 2008.
