Ronny got into touch with OpenNMS working as a network management consulting and teacher at the University of Fulda. He is an active contributor to the OpenNMS Project. Alex was looking for a network management system to get a grip on around 80’000 devices spread over europe when he learned about OpenNMS. Both Ronny and Alex are members of the core project team of OpenNMS, the "Order of the green polo" ;) In 2010 they published together with Klaus Thielking-Riechert the german language OpenNMS book (ISBN: 978-3-89864-656-7).
