AbstractOpenNMS (www.opennms.org) is an advanced service and network management platform with over 10 years of development entirely as an Open Source project written in Java. It is used by organisations around the world to manage large and small networks and also to manage application infrastructures. In the UK its users include BT, Zen Internet, TMX Atrium, Loughborough University and Arqiva. The platform is also embedded by vendors such as Juniper Networks who have embed it in Junos Space.
