San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
6connect, the industry leader in software-defined network controls, announced today that its ProVision 4.0 automated provisioning software will be introduced at Interop Las Vegas, the world’s largest independent and comprehensive event for IT professionals.
Provisioning and configuring networks normally are manually intensive processes focused on individual, vendor-specific network elements. These manual configurations cannot keep up with rapidly changing devices and networks, thus creating outage risks that forfeit revenue, customer trust and delay the introduction of new services. Furthermore, manual network provisioning limits the ability to holistically enforce compliance, and to manage or roll back network configurations. As a result, networks cannot be provisioned and controlled at the pace required by virtual and mobile business operations. 6connect solves these issues with its unique Dynamic Provisioning control platform: ProVision 4.0, which enables more accurate and faster network provisioning by global network management teams.
ProVision overcomes the problems created by decoupling network control from network vendor hardware or software as well as removes errors created by using CLIs. The platform dynamically and holistically provisions all the network control factors needed to initiate and operate network and data center elements, including IPv6 and IPv4 address and resource management, DNS zones, DNSSEC signing, DHCP pool management, and VLAN and device-level information. ProVision v4.0 adds 6connects unique permission and asset management structure, which enables network management teams to globally visualize the topologies they would like to provision, then grant subnet, zone, device, virtual machine, or physical location-specific provisioning authority to users.
Now global network management teams can remotely and collaboratively provision, configure and control their networks locally and globally, all while achieving the great time and productivity savings the ProVision users have become accustomed to, said 6connect CEO Bill Bien. On average, network management teams that use ProVision reduce their time provisioning, configuring, and controlling their networks by 80 percent.
Not only will 6connect be unveiling ProVision 4.0 at Interop Las Vegas, May 6-10 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center, but the companys network provisioning solutions will also be used by Interop, the leading business technology event series.
Our network has to be deployed extremely quickly; in most cases, we have less than a week to build a network to support tens of thousands of attendees, not to mention the exhibitors, classes, and administrative functions of the show, said Brandon Ross, Interops Routing and Switching Team Lead. 6connect quickly solved our IPAM challenges by automating the entire process for both IPv4 and IPv6. Being able to allocate addressing to different locations and purposes made it easy to foster good aggregation. Additionally, DNS integration saved tons of deployment time that otherwise would have been spent on time-consuming work.
6connect is the leader in software-defined network control. 6connect’s unique Dynamic Network ProVisioning (DNP) platform enables the discovery, configuration, and control of physical and virtual devices across distributed and mobile networks, cloud platforms, web-hosting platforms, and data centers. Innovative customers such as GoDaddy, DukeNet Communications, Aruba Networks, Exponential Interactive, iLand Cloud Infrastructure, and CyrusOne utilize DNP to accelerate service delivery time, accurately provision complex network protocols, and dramatically reduce network complexity and costs, while achieving industry change management and compliance requirements.
6connect is based in Silicon Valley and employs an engineering team that includes some of the worlds foremost experts in IPv4/IPv6 technology, network design, operations, and management. To learn more about the company, visit https://www.6connect.com/
