- Nortel Discovery Protocol
The Nortel Discovery Protocol (NDP) is a Data Link Layer (OSI Layer 2) network protocol for discovery of Nortel (now acquired by Avaya and Ciena) devices. The device and topology information is graphically displayed by the Avaya Enterprise Switch Manager software.
The Nortel Discovery Protocol had its origin in the SynOptics Network Management Protocol (SONMP), developed before the SynOptics and Wellfleet merger in 1994. The protocol was rebranded as the Bay Network Management Protocol (BNMP) and some protocol analyzers referenced it as the Bay Discovery Protocol (BDP). Four years later, in 1998, Bay Networks was acquired by Nortel and renamed to Nortel Discovery Protocol. Possibly changing to Avaya Discovery Protocol (ADP)
