SINGAPORE and COLUMBIA, Md., June 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integral Systems, Inc., (Nasdaq:ISYS) announced today at the CommunicAsia 2011 exhibition and conference in Singapore, that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Newpoint Technologies, has expanded its free driver program to include SNMP interfaces into satellite and transmission equipment. The new version of COMPASS™ SNMP Manager makes it even easier to manage SNMP equipment, virtually eliminating the development time required to interface SNMP equipment into a COMPASS Network Management System (NMS). Users will also be able to auto-discover SNMP-enabled devices on the network, quickly and easily import all or part of the Management Information Base (MIB) and automatically build out device-detailed screens for effective equipment management.

"One of the most costly aspects of maintaining a network management system is the cost of building new drivers into equipment as the network grows or technologies evolve," said Wally Martland, President of Newpoint Technologies. "The high cost vendors charge for this development causes many network administrators to forgo managing any new equipment, eventually rendering the NMS completely useless."

Previously, Newpoint Technologies offered free driver development for serial and proprietary Ethernet equipment when purchasing a COMPASS software license or for customers under COMPASS Gold maintenance plans. With the new version of COMPASS SNMP Manager, customers will receive the SNMP interfaces at no charge.

Martland continued, "Our driver library has blossomed to approximately 1,500 drivers. Even so, we still receive new requests weekly. Customers will now have peace of mind knowing that they will never face the high cost of driver development or be stuck with components on the network they cannot afford to manage. As more equipment providers move to SNMP as a supported protocol, we want our customers to know that they will be able to manage all equipment on the network, regardless of the equipment protocol."

Integral Systems and its family of companies – including Newpoint Technologies – will be exhibiting at CommunicAsia 2011, being held June 21 through 24 at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
