NetBrain’s automatic network discovery engine “learns” your infrastructure and builds a mathematical model of your network, end to end, from live network data. Unlike SNMP-only mapping tools, NetBrain automatically collects CLI data across all devices.
Just provide an IP address of a core device and NetBrain uses a patented discovery algorithm to crawl your network and provide a granular view of your network infrastructure. You can discover your entire layer 3 and layer 2 infrastructure, routers, switches, firewalls, and more, as well as any endpoint with an IP address. You can even discover software-defined network data from SDN controllers via APIs so you can visualize the SDN data on a dynamic map.
Our network discovery solution is scalable. Discover up to 2000 devices per hour, with support for hundreds of model types including Cisco, Juniper, F5, and many more. Discovery can be run on-demand as needed, or scheduled to run automatically to pick up any newly added devices to the network.
“Having NetBrain work as a network discovery tool is a huge asset for our team, so that engineers with little knowledge of the existing network can still troubleshoot.”
– Team Lead of IT & Design Engineering for AT&T
Discover Your Entire L2 and L3 Infrastructure
Discover your entire network infrastructure — routers, switches, firewalls, and more — as well as any endpoint with an IP address.
Built for Today’s Hybrid Networks
Discover hundreds of model types from Cisco, Juniper, F5, and 90+ other vendors. Visualization helps make sense of virtualization technologies such as VDC, VPC, and firewall contexts. View supported vendors
Keep Track of Your Network as It Changes
Update your maps on the fly and compare historical “benchmarks” to pinpoint recent changes in topology, routing, CLI data, and more.
Engineered for Hyper-scale Networks
Discover more than 2,000 devices per hour – hundreds of models across dozens of vendors.
Hassle-free, Hands-off Deployment
Just provide the IP address of a core router or switch, and NetBrain automatically discovers the entire network recursively.

Each icon on a Dynamic Network Map is not just a picture, but a smart object. These smart objects combine to form…
Rethinking Network Documentation for the Modern Age
In today’s highly virtualized, hybrid environments, manually maintained diagrams don’t cut it. This white paper presents an improved framework that re-defines “network documentation” for the modern age.
