Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) & Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)

StableNet® technology revolutionizes the management of large heterogeneous network infrastructures

StableNet® Architecture

StableNet® is based on open technologies to allow easy integration in already existing IT service management-/business process monitoring tools. It offers an industry re-defining licensing model that helps to reduce costs of managing large IT networks. Moreover, StableNet® is designed to map with the state-of-the-art service-oriented architecture as recommend by TM Forum, where we at Infosim® are a long-term active member.

StableNet® extends the boundaries of network monitoring by incorporating infrastructure management.

StableNet® APIs

In addition, there is a powerful API that can be used to attach IT management systems and OSS/BSS solutions heading towards an automated “Dark” IT Services Operations Center.

StableNet® contains multiple open application programming interfaces (APIs) that enable the integration with third-party systems.

Dynamic Rule Generation (DRG)

Your challenge

Scalability vs. Aggregation?

Your classic 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 you with insufficient data to troubleshoot complex scenarios.

The first self-regulating Root Cause Analysis

Dynamic Rule Generation (DRG) expands and contracts rules that automatically troubleshoot your network by anticipating all possible scenarios from master rule sets.

DRG is like cruise control for your network rule set. 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.

Stop manually creating rules! Take your hands off the keyboard and allow the DRG cruise control to take over!

Our solution

Technical Benefits

N

Master rule sets

Making sure all required rules are met, without manual pre-creation, providing you with sufficient data
N

Auto-troubleshooting

Automatic ticket generation and reporting of alarms, leading to fast notification

N

Rules are kept up to date

A new monitor for each unique alarm that meets its filter criterion is created; the dynamically created monitor only reacts on the value automatically inserted in the monitor property
N

Types of measurements

DRG works for syslog, trap, status, and script measurements

Your RoI

N

Dark NOC

Reduced need for human intervention due to robotically expanding and contracting rule sets
N

Transparency

Enabling of a swift service impact analysis

Provisioning & Orchestration

Zero-touch flow-through provisioning

5

Backup Configuration

Backup and restore of network device and systems configurations, backup jobs (scheduled, on-demand, or ad-hoc), system-aided comparison of backed-up configurations.
5

Centralized Device Configuration

Efficient handling of Configuration Jobs by centrally controlled, distributed StableNet® Agents, mass configurations (tracking errors, replays for error fixing, etc.).
5

Policy Management

Policy checks on devices and systems and execution of defined configuration actions via distributed StableNet® Agents.
5

Vulnerability Management

Vulnerability checking on network devices, security compliance checking (e.g. PCI-DSS, NSA recommendation, etc.).
5

EoL & EoS Management

Identify and report on network and IT devices being listed End-of-Life, respectively End-of-Services (but it is likely that you are still paying maintenance on).
5

Supportive Functionality

Discovery of network and services infrastructure and topology, inventory and change tracking, systems security and role-based access control.

N

Compliance

Ensuring of compliance processes

Tagging & Grouping

A small revolution in the way that data can be handled for management and orchestration

See Tagging & Grouping in action in our webinar recording on YouTube.

Unlimited, dynamic structure of elements

Tagging in StableNet® does practically allow for a complete flexibility of any mix of tagging attributes and the order the tree navigation will show up.

Tagging uses an “inheritance data model”. The inventory tree hierarchy can be modified or configured as required. Multiple tree type views can be preset or can be set even ad-hoc. For example, you can create a view with a first level containing countries, the second level cities, and the third level the brand of the routers.

Tagging is more than just unlimited categories

Automated Tagging

200 predefined tag categories ready to use
+ option to use customizable tags

Automated Filtering

Focus on most relevant information
o

Automated Grouping

of information that belongs together
U

Improved Searching

Find needed information
l

Improved Handling

of overall workflow/processes

Full flexibility

Inventory/Topology/Weather Maps
(Auto-)creation of modifiable Weather Maps that can be navigated in any way via backward and forward linking to drill-down and drill-up.

Map Views
OpenStreet Maps to zoom-in and zoom-out as well as map views with the element views related to the zoom level.

Many Tree Type Views are possible, e.g.
Vendor – Model – Device
Service – Area – Utilization
Service Problem – “Corporate Customer” – Affected Area
Service Problem – Vendor – “Most Affected Devices”
Service Issue – Causing Sub-Service – “Causing System”
Device “Capacity PM Issue” – Affected Services – Affected Customers

Technical Benefits

N

Flexible filtering and grouping

Elements can be easily filtered or grouped together (including AND, OR, NOT, and nesting)

N

Multiple tree type views

Tree hierarchy can be configured and modified according to your requirements

N

Element selection

Elements are auto-positioned during discovery into the navigation tree e.g. by their domain, type, and relations; they can also be moved and grouped within the tree structure to map to organizational structures

N

Access

Your RoI

N

Data at your fingertips

Relations and inheritance in the various tree type views provide full flexibility with accessing the needed data allowing to make adequate decisions
