All-in-One Unified Approach

StableNet® is an integrated, automated management system allowing network administrators to manage their entire network – from traditional endpoints (routers and switches), servers, and cloud environments to IoT sensors and SDN/NFV deployments – all within one pane of glass.

StableNet® is based on four key pillars: Consolidation, Automation, Scalability, and Customization.

Discovery & Inventory
Performance Management
Fault Management
Network Configuration & Change Management

Discovery & Inventory

StableNet® is based on a solid network discovery and has strong device inventory capabilities

Service discovery of all layers

StableNet® discovers largely on its own in a most automated way the elements within the regarded IP- and IT infrastructure and system environment. 
It does also discover the communication relationships between the discovered elements and the physical and logical discovery.

From the traditional network endpoints to IoT endpoints to SDN/NFV variations, StableNet® discovers and allows for their inclusion in the network.

Service discovery as key feature of StableNet®: Each layer is visible via drill-down.

StableNet® NetFlow Analysis

StableNet® includes a powerful NetFlow analysis. All common NetFlow protocols are supported (Cisco: v1, v3, v5, v7, v9, IPFix; Juniper and others: cFlow, jFlow, sFlow; Huawei: Netstream).

The analysis can be run in near real-time (tracking), and it may also be processed as long-term reporting.

There is a rich set of filter options available for additional support. The usual StableNet® TopN Reports (Top Talkers) can be also used with NetFlow.

Keep on track what is going on in the network. Structure and optimize your network according to your KPIs and business needs.

Fault Management

Clear and actionable information

Watch our webinar “Expert Level Fault Management. A “hands-on” session with our CTO”.

Gain more insight on fault management with StableNet® in our webinar recording “5 modern Fault Management techniques to TEASE you!” on YouTube.

Automated Root Cause- & Impact Analysis

StableNet® enables your network team to observe and quickly isolate faults within a network and further on managing to resolve the issue.

The fault management key features here are the automated Root Cause- and Impact Analysis, and Dynamic Rule Generation (DRG). Dynamic Rule Generation is a unique feature of StableNet® and allows for automated setup of rules based on the discovery.

Profit from fast troubleshooting and error handling which reduces mission-critical downtime of your network.

Reduction of Mean-Time-To-Repair (MTTR)

StableNet® Fault Management provides automated Root Cause Analysis and Business Impact Analysis supporting you to get immediate information on:

What is causing the problem in my network?

How does the problem affect my business?

StableNet® gives you clear and actionable information in case of a network failure. It automatically correlates alarms and events to determine their root cause.

This reduces the Mean-Time-To-Repair (MTTR) and downtime of your mission-critical applications. Studies showed an average improvement rate of about 80%.

Effective troubleshooting

Alarming of the respective person or group (multi-tenancy), and ability to define escalation models for your company, so the right person in the right spot can react instantly
/

Consolidation of events

Flexible event handling allows for consolidation of events from different sources

W

Network Configuration & Change Management (NCCM)

Zero-touch provisioning

The StableNet® NCCM module delivers key Network Configuration and Change Management functions, including real-time configuration backup and restoration, process-oriented change management, configuration policy management, and two additional subscription services delivering vulnerability and End-of-Life/End-of-Service updates.

The NCCM module is a fully integrated component of StableNet®, using the same common core services, device interaction layers, and user interfaces, which delivers a true ‘single product’ management solution with a greatly reduced time for user familiarization.

Configuration changes can be made either by using simple CLI commands or by using more powerful logic-based snippets and templates which enable less technical staff to make routine changes.

Who? What? Where? When?
