JDS Management Software

Where the Smart Grid and Internet meet ...

At JDS Management Software (JDS) we take pride in delivering value. Here is what some of our clients have said about the work we have performed. Details of our industry-specific achievements are displayed over each image.

Smart Grid Accomplishments

JDS Management Software has architected, designed, and led implementation efforts on software that has been installed, deployed and is currently in use at large California, and East Coast utilities. Software was either purchased or acquired for test and deployment in a variety of environments:
  • Power quality monitoring and event notification/root cause analysis.
  • Broadband over power line communication infrastructure management.
  • Software for in-home/customer premise smart grid devices.
  • Hybrid network backhaul management software (cellular and BPL/RF and wire line communications).
  • VPN configuration/security and integration with third-party service providers - a service creation, delivery and management system.
  • Asset management - discovery and change reporting.
  • Performance, configuration, fault and other event monitoring and correlation.
  • Application framework software architecture.
"JDS Management Software has the innate ability to grasp, not only explicit customer requirements, but to also create a design which addresses those requirements and is also able to scale towards future needs. Having JDS lead or network management team was a tremendous benefit, as I was not only confident in his design, but also in his ability to manage the team to deliver a quality product in the time quoted. JDS Management has my highest recommendation, that I would hire them again in an instant."

Dave Goldblatt - Architect, Ambient Corporation

"JDS Management Software worked with a number of groups at Gold Wire Technology while we were developing the initial concept for policy-based configuration management at Gold Wire Technology. What makes Jon unique is his instinctive fluency in the language of software implementation and business requirements. What he uniquely offers--his ability to project best current implementation techniques, as well as market state of the art in network management and operational systems--instantly puts the client of his who is a software vendor or provider in a uniquely enhanced position of advantage over the team lacking Jon's unique insight."

Wayne Tackabury - Architect, Gold Wire Technology/Intelliden


Accomplishments in the areas of Network, Device, Policy, and Configuration Management

Our architecture and design work has helped our clients in network management, develop, ship and deploy software that has not only met with commercial success but also received industry awards and patents.
  • Numerous projects on software that performs device/network configuration management for large scale environments.
  • User interface and integration with third party software systems for routing analysis software.
  • Quality of Service policy based management system for service level control in large distributed environment..
  • Policy-based device configuration systems.
  • Scalable data collection and event analysis system for large Internet Service Provider.
  • Systems for effective configuration and monitoring of SNMP administrative framework security and access control.
"When I was at NTT/Verio we engaged JDS on a number of projects. Broad expertise in the areas of network management, software engineering, Internet Technologies, and systems architecture and design poved invaluable to us. The work was always on time, of the highest quality and within the time and cost estimates provided. These projects helped us develop a more effective management architecture that helped reduce network downtime and its accoacited costs."

Defense Industry Accomplishments

Security, challenging environments, and the scale of some of the networks in these environments combine to require new ways to look at traditional problems. JDS Management Software has helped in a number of areas:
  • Introduction of Commercial of-the-shelf elements as key parts of the solution which greatly reduce cost.
  • Recommendations for elimination of excess system layers in a complex system of systems to increase reliability and reduce cost..
  • Adaptation of commercial techniques to this environment to avoid reduce requirements for custom code and products.
  • Proposals for simplification/clarification of requirements to further reduce cost and increase reliability.
"JDS Management Software brings knowledge and experience with management software from standards formation through real world implemenation. It's rare to find forward looking development and hard practicality in the same people. JDS Management Software has both. This gave me the confidence that our project had access to the latest standards available while maintaining implemenation feasibility."
