"Rebel.com Inc., a leading supplier of LINUX(r) and UNIX enterprise solutions, and LINMOR Technologies (CDNX:LIR), a leading developer of network management systems for managing the Internet network infrastructure, today announced that they are working together on a hardware-software network management system solution that will offer significant savings to the Telco and Internet Service Provider (ISPs) market."

"We wanted to combine our network management software with a proven hardware system," said Tom Morocz, vice president of business development at LINMOR. "Rebel.com's NetWinder offers us the ultimate solution to bundle and sell our LINUX-based NEBULA network management system."

"LINMOR recently announced that they have ported their entire NEBULA network management software product line to the LINUX operating system. Bundling this software with the NetWinder will allow LINMOR to target the solution to both Telcos and ISPs with a more cost-effective hardware alternative. This is particularly important to those Telcos and ISPs who are entering the rapidly emerging Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and Internet over cable markets, where the typical network is comprised of millions of objects that need to be managed. The savings come from the fact that the Netwinder costs a fraction of what traditional UNIX systems cost to purchase and maintain, at the same time offering exceptional performance and reliability. The LINUX solution to be offered by LINMOR and Rebel.com will now enable carriers to cost-effectively manage this new breed of very large, complex networks at a fraction of their current hardware costs."
