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
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.
Automated detection of your network elements
Discovery of current device status, including physical and logical connectivity
Accumulation of your data
Configuration of visual networks and ability to act as interface to data stored in CMDBs
Recognize – Capture – Display
User-defined and credentials-based
Drill-down to each layer
Automated inventory collection of nearly all devices regardless of manufacturer or device type
End-of-Life & End-of-Service Management
Identify and report on network and IT devices being listed EoL or EoS
Cost-effective management of network assets
Automation of discovery and visibility of the network and its elements saving you time and money
Distributed End-2-End Network & Services Management
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.
Flexible and individual KPI definition
Quickly see how the network is meeting the organization’s business goals
Big data analysis
Import and export of data structure
Real-time and interactive graphical visualization
e.g. Service Analyzer, Dashboards, Widgets, Weather Maps
Monitoring on different levels: traffic, device, service level
Collecting, analyzing, and summarizing data from any source and any vendor
Keeping your SLAs and OLAs
Flexible reporting on relevant and critical data
Proactively acting on issues that affect the network and service performance
through e.g. effective handling of data packages; tracking, understanding, and prioritizing network problems immediately
Visibility and transparency
Tailored reports providing quick access to and overview on relevant performance data
Clear and actionable information

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%.
Consolidation of events
Flexible event handling allows for consolidation of events from different sources
Fast isolation & resolving
Ability to isolate a critical problem within the console view and resolve it quickly
Reduces the required time to respond to the network error and resolve the error
Auto Root Cause Analysis
Focusing and prioritizing alarms, distinction between important and unimportant
of the effectiveness of troubleshooting (control your SLAs)
Time savings & increased availability
via auto RCA and quick time to resolution (MTTR)
into business processes, e.g. ticket system, business workflows
through e.g. measurability and integration
Network Configuration & Change Management (NCCM)
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?
