Fulcrum Microsystems today announced the ControlPoint Developer Alliance to help equipment providers deliver networking platforms that are more innovative, secure and feature-rich.
The focal point of the Alliance is the ControlPoint 10G Ethernet Switch Management Software Suite, Fulcrum’s IP routing software for enterprise, data centre and telecom fabric and access platforms.
The networking software is an increasingly critical component of a networking platform because it exposes the features offered by those platforms, such as quality of service (QoS), congestion management (CM), virtual LANs (VLANs), and routing, the company said in a release.
ControlPoint allows Alliance members to integrate these services into their designs as necessary, and to have access to published application-programming interfaces (APIs) to develop their own next-generation features.
