Information technology solutions firm SK C&C and network equipment firm CISCO will be working together to develop a software platform that can manage network and security systems.

Yang Yu-seok, the head of SK C&C’s information and communications technology infrastructure business, and Park Jae-beom, the vice president of CISCO, signed a partnership deal for the collaboration at C&C’s office in Pangyo on Wednesday.

The platform to be developed by the two partners will enable network operators to monitor different network devices and systems as well as change the settings and fix errors.

It will feature a “rollback” function, which returns systems back to its previous state through a few clicks to solve unexpected system errors, and the network function virtualization, which will enable operators to manage firewalls and network ports without the installation of any hardware system.

It will also allow a one-stop checkup of network routers and switches.

“The two companies will continue to work to improve the IT infrastructure and deploy advanced network technology in a range of industries for the development and operation of big data services,” Yang Yu-seok of SK C&C said in a press release.
