About SNMP Research

Advantages of Using SNMP Research's Products

The Protocol

Simple Network Management Protocol is the standard operations and maintenance protocol for the Internet and is the market's choice for management framework. SNMP-based management not only produces management solutions for systems, applications, complex devices, and environmental control systems, but also provides solutions for Web technologies. (SNMPv3 is Full Standard.)


SNMP Research is a leading-edge producer of Internet Standards and standards-based products and was the first company to support SNMPv3. The complete family of products and services from SNMP Research add value by allowing customers to achieve their management goals faster, better, and at a lower total cost. We are able to achieve these goals because our engineering staff represents more than a half-century of management expertise, and our sales staff works closely with our engineers to help ensure rapid implementation.


SNMP Research has always been, and continues to be, instrumental in the definition and success of the Internet-standard Management Framework. Dr. Jeff Case, founder of SNMP Research, and other engineers at SNMP Research authored or co-authored SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, SNMPv3, and many related MIB documents. As a result, our implementations are unquestionably faithful to Internet standards, and in many cases, the standards are based on our implementations.

In addition, our leadership has produced industry standards before Internet standards have been defined. For example, our innovative EMANATE® technology solves problems associated with run-time extensibility of SNMP agents, making a standards-based approach to systems and applications management possible.

Products and Tools

SNMP Research has developed highly extensible products that are flexible enough to support diverse network and system requirements. These products enable organizations to get full value from their installed base of SNMP management data, while taking advantage of Web-based access and other advances in the market. We also offer options for adding extensive security mechanisms to SNMP-based frameworks.

We create products for the management of networks, systems, applications, and legacy devices. Also, all SNMP Research products support SNMPv3, and feature highly extensible architectures for extensible agent, manager station, and mid-level manager implementations. Our products possess three important characteristics necessary for successful management solutions: reliability, flexibility, and multilingual support.


SNMP Research has been deeply involved in the SNMP standards since the beginning of the open standards process. That involvement, which began with SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c, continues with SNMPv3. Many companies use our code as their reference to verify that other SNMP code complies with the standards.


SNMP Research products are available on an unprecedented diversity of development and target platforms, including Microsoft* Windows* systems and over a dozen dialects of UNIX*.

Multilingual Support

All SNMP Research agent and manager tools support SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, and SNMPv3. This multilingual support eases the transition between the versions. Our innovative multilingual software components eliminate the need for disruptive overnight conversions to new protocols and security subsystems. Instead, the multilingual option reduces the risk associated with migration by allowing for graceful and gradual upgrades through simultaneous use of multiple protocols during the conversion period.


SNMP Research offers two main categories of services: maintenance services and professional services. Maintenance Service is part of our Software Service Agreement, which can be contracted for updates, enhancements, and assistance. In addition, support calls are answered by highly qualified engineers who are intimately familiar with the code, so you receive the right answers in a timely fashion. (See what some of our customers have to say about our technical support.)

Our professional services can be contracted for consulting, porting and implementation, and/or training. Over the years, SNMP Research has assisted many customers in designing and implementing MIBs, porting agent and management software to a wide variety of platforms, and implementing IETF specifications into customized environments.


SNMP Research is made-up of a group of people who work together as a fully integrated team striving to achieve company goals. The team is intimately familiar with the industry standards and with the means for creating and supporting the technology needed to generate enterprise management solutions. The team forms the largest, most experienced, professional staff of engineers and computer scientists in the industry who are dedicated to the development and support of SNMP-based management and related services. By taking advantage of our expertise, you can reduce your time to market, while ensuring quality implementations and an unmatched degree of compliance with standards.

Supported Platforms

Our products are constructed for easy porting to new environments, enabling us to quickly extend our list of supported platforms to satisfy customer demand. If a system is not currently supported by SNMP Research, we are happy to work with customers to port our products to new systems.
