I Like Traffic Lights

I am constantly amazed at the uses our users find for OpenNMS.

We just posted an interview with John Jennery, IT Manager of the City of Grapevine, Texas. Grapevine is the city just outside of Dallas/Fort Worth which is where the airport is located, so if you have ever flown through DFW you’ve been there.

In addition to normal IT management tasks, John uses OpenNMS to monitor the traffic light system for the town. You might not think that is such a big deal, but its importance becomes clear when you realize that this year a rare snowstorm hit the city just as 150,000 people arrived for the Super Bowl.

Check it out, and many thanks to John for letting us post his story.
