Rapid Logic-Art & Logic Partnership Delivers Award-Winning Web-Based Management Systems.

ALAMEDA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 10, 1999--

Intelligent device management software and user interface design

services provide leading device vendors with attractive, robust

Web-based management solutions

Rapid Logic Inc. and Art & Logic Inc. today announced a partnership in which, together, the two companies provide manufacturers of datacom and telecom equipment with award-winning and widely adopted Web-based management systems.

Both companies were pioneers in providing Web-based management support more than four years ago. Rapid Logic's founders delivered the first Web-manageable network product, the TribeLink(TM) Internet Router, while working together at Tribe Computer Works. Since that first implementation of Web-based management, Rapid Logic has brought to market a third-generation technology solution built on its RapidControl Backplane(TM). Art & Logic developed a Web/CGI management system, which allowed any standard Web browser to be used for configuring Sonoma Systems' Access device.

Now the companies share several customers in common. One of those is Redback Networks. Redback used Rapid Logic's RapidControl for Web(TM) for adding Web-based management capabilities to its award-winning Subscriber Management System(TM) (SMS) 1000, a broadband subscriber management system. The company also collaborated with Art & Logic to design its sophisticated Web-based management interface.

"Rapid Logic's RapidControl for Web saved us time and provided us with a powerful and extensible framework for re-using code for future management through Java applets, JavaScript, XML, and e-mail alerts," said Jeff Johnson, software engineer, embedded management, of Redback Networks. "In addition, Art & Logic's engineers truly understand the requirements for Web-based interfaces. This gave us a high performance, functional interface."

Art & Logic's engineers use the connectivity provided by Rapid Logic's RapidControl(TM) product line to access the embedded parameters within networked devices. This allows Art & Logic's development team to leverage their experience in advanced JavaScript programming for optimizing the functionality and performance of the Web-based device management interface. In addition to custom Web applications for device management systems, Art & Logic's engineering team assists with custom Java applications, applets and servlets, and C/C++ applications for embedded systems.

Rapid Logic's RapidControl product line includes RapidControl for Web(TM), RapidControl for Applets(TM), RapidControl for CLI(TM), MIBway(TM) for RapidControl(TM) and MIBway(TM) for Wind(R) Web Server. All products use the company's RapidControl Backplane (RCB), a management architecture that serves as a bi-directional gateway for tying device-level objects to higher-level management objects, for comprehensive access and control. The RCB exposes objects in a standardized fashion and provides easy extensibility to a myriad of management protocols. By maintaining a separation between device-level objects and management-level objects, the RCB facilitates changes to a device's user interface without making changes to internal code. This allows Rapid Logic's customers to outsource their user interface design for product upgrades and customization. The RCB is the only device management framework that unifies critical management functions around a common architecture.

Other companies using Rapid Logic's software for creating extensible, scalable and customizable Web-based management systems and Art & Logic's Web-based management system support services include Nortel Networks, Anritsu Corporation, and Ensemble Communications.
