Overview:

Business Challenge

Growth and Upgrades

  • Which links will I need to upgrade in 3 months?
  • How will my new corporate applications affect utilization levels?

Network Services

  • Which VPNs do I have deployed on each of my links?
  • How much topology utilization is attributable to VPNs?

Network Resiliency

  • If I have a fiber cut which portions of my network will go down?
  • Can I optimize, hence downgrade, my network while maintaining responsiveness?

Balancing Performance vs. Cost

  • Can I simplify MPLS TE on my service provider grade network?
  • How does my route optimization affect network performance?

The Riverbed Solution

Riverbed SteelCentral NetPlanner enables planning and design of multi-technology, multi-vendor networks with complete lifecycle support - including network data import, baseline analysis, cost-effective network change planning, survivability, and configlet generation for push to network devices. NetPlanner’s unique ability to model the behavior of the entire network and the supported applications:

  • Automates capacity planning, survivability analysis, and traffic engineering workflows combined with comprehensive, business-relevant reporting
  • Delivers data-driven predictions for validating network changes due to growth, technology migration, and pre-deployment analysis before deploying to the production network
  • Supports planning for traffic trends, technology rollouts and key initiatives such as data center migration, deployment of Unified Communications, VPN, and IPv6 migration
  • Improve network survivability by predicting the impact of node, link, or shared risk group failures and planning protection strategies

Benefits & Features:

Key Benefits

NetPlanner help carriers, ISPs, government agencies, and enterprises facilitate service and technology deployments, meet service level agreements, maximize existing network investments, and obtain significant ROI. NetPlanner’s in-depth analysis of “what-if” scenarios can compare pre- and post-change impact on network infrastructure from a performance perspective.

  • Cost-effectively plan network requirements to support the deployment of new applications and technologies such as VoIP and IPv6
  • Right-size network capacity to support projected traffic growth
  • Minimize risk by evaluating different network architectures and technology migration plans
  • Achieve service level compliance through QoS and traffic engineering
  • Improve network survivability and security
  • Accelerate troubleshooting of routing and network configuration problems

Key Features

  • Automatically create a high-fidelity network model encompassing topology, devices, configurations, and traffic using configuration and operational data from the production environment and other network management systems
  • Leverage best-in-class analytics to evaluate a wide range of “what-if” scenarios in a virtual environment without making changes to the production network routing such as VPN or QoS configuration
  • Analyze network capacity usage to identify trends, threshold violations, inefficiencies, atypical behavior, and the timing of future upgrades to links and tunnels to meet service level objectives
  • Automatically design and optimize network topologies based on user-configurable priorities for cost, resiliency, and performance- related criteria such as link utilization and reduced delay
  • Visualize all VPN deployments, their underlying topology, traffic flows, and relevant KPIs from a single browser dedicated to VPN analysis
  • Import flow information from Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler for realistic traffic flow information when performing capacity analysis and planning

Unique Capabilities

  • Unlike other vendor solutions, NetPlanner’s high fidelity network model combines multiple sources of data to provide a more complete understanding of the network and deliver more accurate predictions of network behavior and performance
  • NetPlanner supports a wider range of out-of-the-box analyses, in both breadth and depth, than other vendor solutions. The high level of detail in the network model and customizations allow planning with minimal network impact
  • NetPlanner’s reporting capabilities are far superior to competitive products, providing the hard data to make calculated network planning decisions instead of just recording uncorrelated metrics
  • Unique multi-layer planning and analysis capabilities with integration to SteelCentral NetProfiler and OpticalPlanner provide capabilities superior to nonintegrated point products

Features for Service Providers:

NetPlanner provides the following additional capabilities for service providers:

  • Out-of-the-box auditing of BGP, IS-IS, OSPF, MPLS, and VPN configurations
  • Service summary reports describing configured L2/L3 VPNs and VPLS instances
  • IPv6 readiness assessments to evaluate a network’s ability to support required features prior to migration or deployment
  • Specialized rules to verify subscription/oversubscription thresholds based on client interfaces and services
  • BGP diagram showing neighbor relationships with internal and external peers and route reflectors
  • IPv6 topology diagrams
