PortIQ

 

Switch Port Intelligence Appliance

The Infoblox PortIQ™ appliance enables you to quickly discover your inventory of Ethernet switch ports network-wide so that you can intelligently optimize your infrastructure rather than “flying blind” as you make new switch purchase decisions. With PortIQ, you can quickly discover which switch ports are under-utilized and where you have excess capacity. You can also protect and quickly troubleshoot your LAN environment with PortIQ, which enables you to do the following:

  • Easily locate and unplug a device marked as a security risk by a firewall
  • Learn where there are open network drops in common areas and meeting rooms
  • While troubleshooting network problems on a device, determine port speed and status without having to physically trace the cable from the device to the switch

PortIQ’s granular level of network monitoring assists you in making informed decisions as you troubleshoot, manage, secure and upgrade your Ethernet switch environment. It provides you with the following information about your switches and switch ports:

  • Switch Name
  • Switch Port
  • Switch Description
  • VLAN Name
  • VLAN Number
  • Switch Status
  • Port Speed/Duplex
  • Link Status
  • First Seen/Last Seen Time Stamps

IPAM Insight

 

Virtualization, private cloud and organic growth have all increased network complexity at an alarming rate. Due to these issues, the need for automation and up-to-date network and IP address information has never been greater. Infoblox IPAM Insight is an extension to the Infoblox IP Address Management solution that further automates the collection and management of IP addresses and combines it with rich network details.

Infoblox IPAM Insight provides a single point of view for critical network components including IP addresses, physical and logical layer 2 and layer 3 network components. Additionally, it auto-populates the IPAM database fields with network data that is typically added in manually. Instead of guessing if you have accurate and up-to-date information, the comprehensive real-time network inventory data helps you make the right decisions, and gives your team the ability to focus on more critical aspects of your organization.

Key Benefits

  • Increase yields up to 90% savings via automation in IP address and network management and monitoring related activities—tasks that took hours or days to complete can now be accomplished in minutes
  • Ensure up-to-date and correct views with auto-discovery of multi-vendor devices and knowledge of both physical and logical network components
  • Reduce network-related helpdesk calls by eliminating IP address conflicts and improving network component visibility
  • Increase end user productivity due to fewer outages with broader visibility
  • Improve security and compliance with detailed reporting and audit logging

NIOS

 

Integrated DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management

Infoblox NIOS™ is a security-hardened, real-time set of appliances built to ensure the non-stop operation of your network infrastructure. NIOS automates the error-prone and time-consuming manual tasks associated with deploying and managing DNS, DHCP and IP address management required for continuous IP network availability and business uptime:

  • Naming services via Domain Name System (DNS)
  • Addressing services via Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
  • IP address management (IPAM)
  • File delivery services via File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) and Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
  • Time synchronization services via Network Time Protocol (NTP)
  • Logging services via Syslog

NIOS runs on Infoblox hardware appliances and also as virtual appliance software (called vNIOS) for VMware ESX+, Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR), and Riverbed Steelhead WAN optimization platforms.

IPAM for Microsoft DNS/DHCP

 

Infoblox IPAM for Microsoft DNS/DHCP allows network administrators to centrally manage parallel IP service infrastructures running on Infoblox appliances and Microsoft Windows servers from a single console. The software delivers granular capabilities not available in Microsoft’s management suite, such as centralized IP address management, DNS changes and granular role-based access control.

Network administrators gain the visibility needed to keep all IP services running 24/7 and to reduce errors, effort and operational costs with the following NIOS capabilities:

  • Control of subnet and IP usage in Microsoft Windows server-based network service infrastructures
  • Central management of Microsoft-based DNS
  • Ability to delegate provisioning and troubleshooting tasks to local administrators and helpdesk
  • Control of user permissions
  • Ability to log changes in audit logs and check configuration syntax
  • Ability to take local network and IP assignments
  • Automation of routine tasks
  • Granular reporting data for troubleshooting and compliance

NetMRI Discovery Module

 

The NetMRI Discovery Module provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date inventory of layer 2 and layer 3 network devices. With multi-vendor support, NetMRI automatically discovers each network device and displays it in an easy-to-use interface, including visual maps that show network neighbors and connectivity.

Instead of guessing what’s on the network, the NetMRI Discovery Module auto-discovers multi-vendor routers, switches and other layer 2/3 network devices. However, it doesn’t stop at the devices, it also identifies end-points and provides detailed views of network components including VLANs, routes, routing tables, HSRP pairs, subnets, OSs, models and more. This automation allows you to:

  • Reduce the manual time needed for inventory and reporting on complex, multi-vendor networks
  • Eliminate human error and out-of date information typically kept on spreadsheets
  • Improve maintenance reconciliation time and correctness for covered device negotiations
  • Visualize the complex relationships between devices and the network to ease with trouble shooting
  • Integrate and sync with the Infoblox NIOS and IPAM Insight solutions for the most up-to-date and comprehensive network information

The NetMRI Discovery Module eliminates the risk of incorrect information so IT teams have accurate inventory data, a visualization of topology and a complete understanding of the network and its components. When organizations require additional network infrastructure control and automation, they can easily upgrade to the full NetMRI capabilities for automating change, managing configurations and ensuring compliances across the network infrastructure.
