Software-Defined Networking delivers highly flexible connectivity with the ability to easily adapt to changing demands. However, network operation teams still struggle to manage SDN as part of their overall infrastructure. This becomes more pronounced as these teams execute infrastructure-level service tickets that span the entire infrastructure, not just portions of it.

NetBrain supports software-defined infrastructure in addition to other networking technologies by delivering end-to-end visibility and automation of service ticket handling. NetBrain ensures that the entire network is performing to the requirements of the business.

Map Hybrid Traffic Flows

NetBrain allows you to dynamically map the entire network, across all technologies. NetBrain enables full visibility and automation of live application paths, hop by hop, through the Cisco ACI fabric alongside its connected traditional infrastructure components and the cloud. With one click, the historical analysis will compare the current flows to those in the past to help spot issues and performance bottlenecks. By including specific support for common software-defined technologies, your operational teams will be able to see, manage and automate the entire digital infrastructure as a single holistic network.

Maintain Health of Overlay and Underlay

NetBrain allows you to decipher your software-defined network’s layers of abstraction and virtualization that sit on top of the underlying hardware infrastructure. This makes both the physical and logical views available for operational automation and visualization. You’ll be able to quickly analyze and view VXLAN tunnel topologies or decode IS-IS and MP-BGP routing logic in seconds. By incorporating the underlay and overlay knowledge in the end-to-end context of the entire infrastructure, NetBrain extends any operational task or service ticket handling to your SDN platforms.

Automate Critical Diagnostics

NetBrain offers the industry’s most complete real-time view of the entire digital infrastructure and provides collaborative execution of service tickets in real-time. Without ever leaving the NetBrain visual management console, any member of any operational team can easily run automated diagnostics and network performance checks across physical and virtual environments. Just point and click – and analyze hundreds of data points in seconds. NetBrain’s advanced automation capabilities are truly end-to-end, without the need to stop at technology borders.

Share SDN Expertise

NetBrain empowers every member of your operational teams to be part of the solution. The no-code automation platform captures highly specialized knowledge required for software-defined infrastructure problem-solving and makes it executable. Address compliance issues in real-time with shareable knowledge, problem resolution, documentation, and security. The solution generates a unique real-time digital twin of your exact network and makes it easy to manage. With NetBrain, software-defined technologies are no longer treated as a “different” type of infrastructure requiring separate management tools, automation, and expertise.
