CIO Review – Infosim Unified Solution for Automated Network Management

CIO Review

20 Most Promising Networking Solution Providers

Virtualization has become the life blood of the networking industry today. With the advent of technologies such as software-defined networking and network function virtualization, the black box paradigm or the legacy networking model has been shattered. In the past, the industry witnessed networking technology such as Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), which eventually gave way to Ethernet, the predominant network of choice. This provided opportunities to refresh infrastructures and create new networking paradigms.Today, we see a myriad of proprietary technologies, competing for the next generation networking models that are no longer static, opaque or rigid.

Ushering a new way of thinking and unlocking the possibilities, customers are increasingly demanding for automation from the network solution providers. The key requirement is an agile network controlled from a single source. Visibility into the network has also become a must-have in the networking spectrum, providing realtime information about the events befalling inside the networks.

In order to enhance enterprise agility, improve network efficiency and maintain high standards of security, several innovative players in the industry are delivering cutting-edge solutions that ensure visibility, cost savings and automation in the networks. In the last few months we have looked at hundreds of solution providers who primarily serve the networking industry, and shortlisted the ones that are at the forefront of tackling challenges faced by this industry.

In our selection, we looked at the vendor’s capability to fulfill the burning needs of the sector through the supply of a variety of cost effective and flexible solutions that add value to the networking industry. We present to you CIO Review’s 20 Most Promising Networking Solution Providers 2015.

Infosim Unified Solution for Automated Network Management

Today’s Networking technology though very advanced, faces a major roadblock—the lack of automation in the network management products. “These products are incapable of delivering a truly unified management approach as they are not an integrated solution but merely a collection of different programs bound together under one GUI to give them the appearance of an integrated solution,” notes Jim Duster, CEO, Infosim. Moreover, the need for continuously updating new device information, changes in configurations, and alerts and actions across these different toolsets are contributing to an ongoing financial burden for enterprises. Addressing these concerns with a unique network management solution is Infosim, a manufacturer of Automated Service Fulfillment and Service Assurance solutions.

Infosim offers StableNet, a unified solution developed and designed to cover performance management, fault management, and configuration management with a software that is engineered with a single code base and a consistent data model underneath. “StableNet is the only “suite” within the network performance management software industry,” claims Duster. The solution addresses the existing operational and technical challenges of managing distributed, virtualized, and mission critical IT infrastructures. “With this approach, we are able to create work flows in every unique customer business and industry to cover many processes efficiently,” he adds. For instance, StableNet monitors the production equipment of a manufacturing company. In case of an equipment failure, the error is being reported and StableNet delivers the root cause of the problem, while notifying an external service provider. The service provider’s technician can open an inspection window with StableNet, exchange the defective device and after re air, can provide feedback to the customer’s operations center.

For supporting the flexible deployment of StableNet, the company offers Infosim StableNet appliance, a high performance, preconfigured, security-hardened, hardware platform. “Appliances related to StableNet series reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by simplifying deployment, consolidating network infrastructure, and providing an extensible platform that can scale with your organization,” states Duster. StableNet also provides a low cost agent platform called the StableNet Embedded Agent (SNEA)—that enables highly distributed installations to support End-to-End (E2E) Visibility, Cloud Monitoring and Internet of Things. The deployment of SNEA is economical and is auto discovered at tactical collection points in networks, thus resulting into a low TCO for collecting and processing network performance actions and alerts.

Infosim StableNet is deployed across the networks of major players in the Telco and Enterprise markets including that of a German auto manufacturer. Acting as the client’s centralized system, StableNet reduced their toolset from over 10 disparate software and hardware offerings from multiple suppliers to less than four. This significantly reduced TCO while increasing service levels. “Siloed IT personnel who used to hide behind non-consolidated results from their individual solutions were all synchronized into one solution, speeding productivity, collaboration and communication,” states Duster.

Infosim is currently participating in advanced research projects on Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) with several universities and leading industry device manufacturers. “The company applies 50 percent of its new software development resource to customer needs which assists customers in achieving milestones in vendor agnostic device support additions, industry specific capabilities, and features that were envisioned by real users,” asserts Duster.

For the years ahead, Infosim plans to build upon its product capability by automating the processes and activities that produce guaranteed service levels and reduce the consumption of human resources in the Network Operations Center (NOC). “Our vision is to enable the Dark NOC, which means a large percent of the non-value adding activities of network engineers can be automated in our product, freeing network engineers to work on proactive new innovations and concepts,” Duster concludes.

Introducing the First Self-Regulating Root Cause Analysis: Dynamic Rule Generation with StableNet® 7

Infosim®, a leading manufacturer of automated Service Fulfillment and Service Assurance solutions for Telcos, ISPs, MSPs and Corporations, today announced a proprietary new technology called Dynamic Rule Generation (DRG) with StableNet® 7.

The challenge: The legacy Fault Management approach includes a built-in dilemma: Scalability vs. Aggregation. On the one hand, it is unfeasible to pre-create all possible rules while on the other hand, not having enough rules will leave NOC personnel with insufficient data to troubleshoot complex scenarios.

The solution: DRG expands and contracts rules that automatically troubleshoot networks by anticipating all possible scenarios from master rule sets. DRG is like cruise control for a network rule set. When DRG is turned on, it can robotically expand and contract rule sets to keep troubleshooting data at optimum levels constantly without human intervention. It will also allow for automatic ticket generation and report alarms raised by dynamically generated rules. DRG leads to fast notification, a swift service Impact Analysis, and results in the first self-regulating Root Cause Analysis in today’s Network Management Software market.

Start automating Fault Management and stop manually creating rules! Take your hands off the keyboard and allow the DRG cruise control to take over!

Dr. Stefan Köhler, CEO for Infosim® comments:

“We at Infosim® believe you should receive the best value from your network, and exchange of information should be as easy as possible. The way we want to achieve these goals, is to simplify the usage and automate the processes you use to manage your network. Rules creation and deletion has been an Achilles’ heel of legacy network management systems. With DRG (Dynamic Rule Generation), we are again delivering another new technology to our customers to achieve our goal of the dark NOC.”

Marius Heuler, CTO for Infosim® comments:

“By further enhancing the already powerful Root Cause Analysis of StableNet®, we are providing functionality to our users that will both take care of ongoing changes in their networks while automatically keeping the rules up to date.”
