Total Network Management

Network/T delivers a powerful centralized management solution for distributed networks that are delivering today’s eBusiness solutions. Through policy-based management, Network/T aligns service levels with business objectives to provide ongoing availability, optimal performance, and management of networks

in a business context.

eBusiness Is The Network

With the increasing trend for eBusiness, the networks play more of a vital role in today’s business arena. The transformation of business to the electronic and digital age has brought performance and user experience to the forefront. Network management can make the difference between an eBusiness initiative being a suc- cess or failure. Effective network management requires a solution that treats your network as an integral part of your business.

Network Management In A Distributed Environment

If yours is like most businesses, heterogeneous networks are a fact of life in your IT environment. Legacy systems present an additio- nal dilemma: how to manage different network infrastructures as separate entities? Invariably, management tasks are frequently duplicated for each network protocol and often introduce problems across network boundaries such as SNA and TCP/IP. This resource-

Intuitively manage your entire network through the Network/T topology map.


intensive approach is costly, and can result in additional delays and network downtime. Network/7 efficiently and effectively manages all networked environments centrally from the enterprise level. This protocol-independent, highly scalable solution monitors and manages network traffic while providing an integrated picture of network performance.

Taking Network Management Further

Network/7 monitors network performance from the end-user and system perspectives. This enables administrators to proactively manage the environment by providing an accurate picture of the network’s performance. eBusiness is taking the challenges in net- work management to greater heights, demanding more scalable, reliable, and comprehensive solutions than ever before. Network/7 takes network management to a new level. It delivers a complete solution that optimizes network performance and availability, and increases service to your business. Network/T enables you to: e Manage networks in an eBusiness context by aligning net- work management with your business objectives and ensuring that the priorities used for managing the network are the same as those used for managing your business. Assure service levels by managing both the availability and performance of the network infrastructure. Manage today’s network infrastructure in one seamless management solution that delivers more network management “out-of-the-box” than any other product. Improve IT efficiency by allowing administrators to centrally manage global heterogeneous networks across all networking protocols for a unified network management scheme.

Distinctive Features

Supports All Major Network Protocols. Network/7 supports all industry-standard protocols, including TCP/IP, IPX, SNA, and DECnet, delivering a comprehensive network management solution for heterogeneous enterprises. EnterpriseDiscovery™ And Classification. Network/7 automatically discovers and classifies all networked devices and assets, then builds an intuitive topology map based on the results of this auto-discovery and classification.


Software superior by design.

Using neural network technology, the network Performance Neugents™ manage and predict problems in advance, which helps prevent router outages, maximizes network performance, improves staff efficiency, and ultimately helps you attain your eBusiness goals. e Performance Management. Providing rea/ service management requires more than availability monitoring. Network/T’s extensive performance management capabilities optimize ongoing network availability, providing a full picture of your network service levels. Application Performance. Network/7 monitors network-centric performance thresholds such as bandwidth utilization and node response times. Application-related performance information is also monitored. For example, Network/T tracks the end-to-end response times for a user accessing an application, the delays on each of the network components between the user and the application, a breakdown of the flow of application traffic, and more.

Programmable Automated Responses. Network/T's sophisti- cated event management functionality enables any number of automated actions to be defined for various events. This allows you to reduce management overhead by creating very sophisti- cated responses to problems that occur in the network. For example, if several alerts were generated indicating a particular router was performing poorly, Network/T could alleviate the problem by automatically reinitializing the router.

ATM, Frame Relay And VLAN Management. Network/T’s Frame Relay Support discovers and monitors each Frame Relay virtual circuit. It displays the circuit’s relationship with other network devices. If a circuit fails, Network/T highlights the affected components or business services and alerts the administrator.



Root Cause Analysis. Network/Ts advanced root cause analysis employs an event correlation system to determine the root cause/starting point of a network problem. This highlights the cause of problems and eliminates confusing event storms from unreadable devices and networks.

VLAN support includes discovery of switches and their man- agement, in addition, it also provides flexible user access security control by dynamically configuring the network infrastructure to the appropriate VLAN as a user logs on.

Scalable. Network/T’s distributed manager/agent architecture delivers a highly scalable solution. From the smallest organization with a simple LAN to large global heterogeneous environments, Network/7 efficiently manages even the most distant resources. OpenView And NetView Migration Tools. Network/7’s migration tools allow you to maximize your previous investments while easily capitalizing on Network/T’s superior functionality. Enterprise Management Infrastructure" Network/T is built on CA's Unicenter TNG® Framework” today’s most sought-after

Total Enterprise Management™ infrastructure. Network/7 leverages the Framework’s powerful reporting, centralized alert and event management technology, and EnterpriseDiscoveryto deliver unparalleled network management for your enterprise. Network/T capitalizes on the Framework’s Business Process Views and 2-D and 3-D Real World Interface™ to visualize and manage the entire network in the context of the eBusiness.
